Aemulus at the Runway is a 58,000 square foot office and manufacturing for an electronics company specialising in electrical testing equipment.

The site overlooks Penang airport runway to which views are maximised.

A brick box separates to allow entry into a reception hall overlooking the runway. The space between the two brick boxes, reception & circulation, becomes multifunctional over three levels.

The predominantly brick façades to all but the open runway elevation have brick fins & perforated brick walls that frame views, protect from solar heat gain & glare while creating a magical natural light internal ambiance.

This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
