The “Art of Living” project is part of the township new brand deployment to emphasise Tamansari, Rawang as a residential destination of choice.
22 February, KUALA LUMPUR – BRDB Developments Sdn Bhd (BRDB) today announced the “Art of Living” project for its Tamansari development in Rawang. The project is a unique outdoor art and cultural endeavour to enrich the living experience of its residents and visitors. It aims to bring art and life to the township where placements of monumental free-standing sculptures, experimental projects, and many other artworks will be scattered within the landscaped tropical gardens in Tamansari.
“At BRDB, we offer beautiful quality homes and we build communities that inspire. The “Art of Living” project is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence. Through this new initiative, we envision a vibrant and happening district where residents and visitors at Tamansari can come together, connect and express creative ideas collectively,” said Mr Kajendra Pathmanathan, Chief Executive Officer of BRDB.
“Art is multifaceted – it evokes the colour and human emotions in our everyday lives and community spaces. One can appreciate a stunning piece of artwork with family, neighbours and friends, creating opportunities to bring communities together, or one can admire it in isolation too,” added Mr Pathmanathan.
The “Art of Living” draws inspirations from the rich history of Rawang as one of the earliest satellite mining towns of Kuala Lumpur and a major producer of tin and rubber until the late-1970s. The first phase of the project will feature the works of four established Malaysian artists including Ramlan Abdullah, Umibaizurah Mahir Ismail, Haffendi Anuar and Jun Ong, each bringing their unique perspectives through artworks that inspire trust and mutual respect, providing context for social interaction as well as the enjoyment of shared experiences.
“The “Art of Living” is a very refreshing initiative and I am honoured to be part of this project to produce artworks that will enrich people’s life and deepen the bond of the communities. Art can be expressed in many forms that will help shape the character of Tamansari and the lives of both the visitors and residents, as well as offer a strong sense of identity,” said artist, Haffendi Anuar.
Rawang as residential destination of choice
Located between 30km and 35km north of Kuala Lumpur, Rawang was one of the earliest satellite towns, having been a thriving and important mining town in the early 19th century. It was also the first town to be supplied electricity in British Malaya. Today, Rawang is a connected and bustling town, developing rapidly with the construction of new commercial and residential hubs. Rawang is home to a diverse community of different races.
Major establishments have also arrived, such as a 55,000 square feet shopping mall by AEON Jusco, diverse financial institutions and a series of food and beverage outlets. Several international schools are also in the pipeline, along with the launch of essential amenities such as the KPJ Rawang Specialist Hospital.
“With enhanced infrastructure, public amenities and connectivity from Sungai Buloh, Petaling Jaya and the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Rawang is developing in the right direction. Thanks to the recently completed scenic Rawang bypass, and the LATAR Expressway, residents of Rawang can now enjoy an easier commute to and fro Kuala Lumpur through the Guthrie Corridor and North-South Expressway,” said Mr. Pathmanathan.
The area is also served by buses such as RapidKL, Metrobus and SJ Buses.
“We believe Tamansari will appeal to home buyers as it is beautifully designed, competitively priced and strategically located,” added Mr. Pathmanathan.
The flourishing Tamansari development is a freehold, gated community with 24/7 integrated perimeter security for each separate phase, and CCTV surveillance system. It comprises of beautiful garden terraced homes, a lakeside commercial hub and artwork masterpieces placed in close proximity to living spaces.
