Building for IPS & Human Studies, USM, Penang

This building shows a design carried out with sensitivity to nature and sustainability. Located in the university complex, IPS building is a perfect definition of conscious design in use of space, material and creativity. Flora is used in specific place to mark foot paths and demarcated external spaces. Built on an undulating platform, the exterior is landscaped in accordance to the topography of the site. Steps and pathways are used to usher visitors in and out of the building. An open space is created in the building acting as a buffer to the private zones of the department. This central open-spaced area is decorated with plants and floored with concrete tiles to encourage fresh breeze and relaxation. Security is provided with the use of iron rails along the corridors.
