CMC is an architectural practice based in Kuala Lumpur with extensive working experience in the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China. The practice has a holistic approach to environmental design that includes planning, architecture and interior design. Working in a studio environment, CMC is built around a small group of individuals, each with particular expertise in different aspects of a multi-disciplinary craft that integrates aesthetic exploration with local building technology. The practice continues to develop an intuitive design approach that combines modern ideas and concepts rooted by local context and culture.
Current works range from private residences, apartments and resorts to commercial buildings both locally and regionally. These include private luxury residences in Kuala Lumpur and Leisure Farm, an award-winning boutique development in Johor.
