Sarawak's First Ever Architectural Design Competition For High-Rise CBD

Hock Song Lee Berhad (HSL), Next Phase Sdn Bhd and the Malaysian Institue of Architects (PAM) have launched an architectural design competition on a piece of prime land in Kuching's central business district.

This architectural design competition calls for a max gross area of 30,000 sq meter for commercial development, which can be mixed-use, except for a hotel. 


“This competition is an ‘idea competition’. A great piece of land, in such a good location, should have a great building on it. Any commercial development is also an opportunity to do public spaces,” says Mr Tay Chiok Kee, HSL Properties Development General Manager. 

The project named 'Langit', which means 'sky' in Malay and in Bahasa Sarawak, 'Lang' means 'door'. 

The winner walks away with RM100,000 while second and third prizes with RM50,000 and RM25,000 respectively. 

The judging will be based on design, economic and financial viability; and innovative and sustainable solution.
