Aedas has unveiled their design for the new Tebrau Waterfront Residences, located in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. The new two million square-meter waterfront community will combine villas and high-rise residential towers with a variety of commercial programs and a hotel.

The design of the master plan creates a new private-island retreat by extending the waterfront into the site, more than doubling its area. The building forms are graded in order to optimize the views of the horizon. The area's historic use of 'kelongs' --  offshore wooden platforms that float --inspired the aesthetic of the new retail hub.

A series of pedestrian underpasses, waterfront promenades, and elevated walkways connect the public spaces, including an open plaza and marina theater. The site contains sunken courtyards that cover parking garages and allow for natural ventilation and sunlight.
