Based in Kuala Lumpur, this architecture practice sows the Malaysian spirit of muhibbah that embraces multiple viewpoints - conceptual, aesthetic and methodological. Ascribing to no single language no fixed style, it instead underpins its diverse design approaches with an underlying connectedness to context and careful attention to detail whilst allowing each project to dictate its own solutions. The firm negotiates a balance between the explorative and the rational, aspiring to produce buildings and spaces that - beyond serving pragmatic functions - engage the civic domain and question the accepted archetypes embedded in the psyche of the community. VERITAS oeuvre traces several recurring characteristics: a reinterpretation of elements drawn from a multicultural context, a human-centric ethos, an innovative mix of local materials and traditional techniques with new technologies and finally, a resonant response to the genius loci.
