G Inn Boutique Hotel

Macalister Road, Penang

A Four (4) storey extension to existing class 2 heritage building.

Design Challenges:

From the existing symmetrical 2 storey building, we extracted the design principle of the front curve façade and use it to create a curving glass element enclosing a staircase, producing an image of a glass tower from the streetscape.


The adjacent bedroom block is covered with a pitched roof with projecting roof eaves similar to the existing roof eaves. The two elements which are arranged asymmetrically behind the existing symmetrical building results in a new pleasing and unique overall composition.
