C’arch Architecture + Design
This is a small complex comprising two laboratories, library, office and open terraces for sitting and sleeping. It was designed as a place to facilitate the gathering and the dissemination of information from the jungles in Royal Belum and Temenggor Dam Complex in line with ideas of sustainability outlined in the “Pulau Banding Charter”. It incorporates environmentally friendly and tropical themes such as a safari roofs, deep roof overhangs, open terraces, open yards and toilets. Existing trees on the site were retained. Researchers are encouraged to cultivate a garden of indigenous trees from saplings collected in the jungle.
