Over the course of the next few months, AIRA Residence will be graced by Puan Sri Tiara Jacquelina. She will view and revel in the gilded units and common areas of AIRA Residence, giving us her personal insights of luxury living at this exclusive condominium.
Tiara Jacquelina is a familiar face to Malaysians. She is an actress, an award-winning producer and the Chief Dream-Maker of The Enfiniti Academy of Musical Theatre and Performing Arts.
Her star-studded career includes acting as the lead protagonist while executive producing the Puteri Gunung Ledang movie and musical, creating musical theatre productions such as P Ramlee: The Musical and Ola Bola!, and recently collaborating with Malaysia Airlines to direct Malaysia Airlines’ new in-flight safety video.
But when she is not acting or directing, Tiara Jacquelina takes time to appreciate the finer things in life, with a keen eye for art and luxury, evident in Tiarasa Escapes, a luxurious glamping property in Janda Baik.
This month, Tiara goes on an exclusive viewing of the stunning Type B show unit in Tower A with her good friend, Datin Catherine “Cat” Lai, an interior designer and founder of 3Rituals, a curator of home fragrance and interior accessories crafted from the finest materials. Upon hearing that her good friend is planning to downsize from her existing home and has been in the search of a luxury condominium in Kuala Lumpur, Tiara brought Datin Cat along to experience the exclusive designer condominium - AIRA Residence.
From the grand lobby entrance of AIRA Residence, Tiara and Datin Cat make their way to the private lift, a feature of the units at AIRA Residence. The private lift provides exclusivity and convenience as residents make their way up to their home in the sky.
Entering the Type B unit, Tiara and Datin Cat are greeted by the gallery space, open and elegant, the heart of the home. The unit was designed with European spatial lines, where the spaces flow seamlessly from one room to the next, creating a good flow of energy. Pleased, Datin Cat remarks the Type B show unit has “a sense of arrival” with a “nice flow of energy” throughout. The calming palette of floor and wall finishes undoubtedly adds a sense of luxury and finesse to the space.
From the gallery, the two make their way into the living room, generously spacious, finished with neutral hues and timbered flooring to evoke elegance and sophistication in this exclusive condominium.
Natural light bathes the living room through the floor-to-ceiling windows, accentuating the sense of openness which provides unobstructed views of the city skyline. Tiara and Datin Cat imagine enjoying the sparkle of the nighttime city skyline while watching New Year’s Eve fireworks from the comfort of their living room. A “magical” experience, Datin Cat dreamily says.
From the living room, Tiara and Datin Cat make their way to the dining room.
Datin Cat, observes the timber sliding doors, partitioning the living spaces noting, “you can pull this together and open up, showing the beautiful table setting” of the dining room from the living room, a combination “seamlessly of the outside and the inside”, which makes the Type B unit an exclusive condominium unlike any other.
They then make their way into the dry kitchen. Datin Cat envisions putting on a show for her guests during a dinner soirée. As she wines and dines with her guests in the dining room, Datin Cat will feature a gourmet chef to prepare food and the guests can look on.
What adds to this stunning dry kitchen is its grand size, complete with a marble-topped island and an extended dining table. The kitchen is not only a place to prepare gourmet meals, it can accommodate a cosy breakfast setting for the family during quiet mornings.
Through a connecting corridor, Tiara and Datin Cat find a wet kitchen, parallel to the kitchen and hidden from sight. Datin Cat glees, undoubtedly pleased to be able to have a space in her home to prepare meals that require heavier Asian preparation, noting that it is “very important” to have a wet kitchen.
The overall arrangement of the gallery, living room, dining room and kitchens highlights how European design meets Asian functionality with uniquely made-to-measure spaces crafted for a lifestyle of comfortable elegance.
The two go on to explore the other living spaces of the Type B unit, and make their way to the bedrooms of the Type B unit.
They enter the two bedrooms, noting that each has a comfortable size without taking away from the sense of spaciousness, which will be perfect for their children to stay when they return from their studies abroad. The bedrooms of this exclusive condominium also feature floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing natural light to pass through the space, creating a calm and serene environment for relaxing.
Tiara and Datin Cat end their tour in the master bedroom of the Tower B unit. The hallway entrance into the master bedroom is lined with leather-bound built-in wardrobes with a built-in dresser, an elegantly thoughtful use of the space. The full-length mirror accentuates the space and adds a touch of class as you are getting ready for the day. The champagne tones of the master bedroom, with plush linens and upholstery creates a cosy yet elegant sanctuary for you to end your day. The master bedroom also features an en suite bathroom with a wonderfully decadent, Cocoon bathtub. Tiara revels in delight as she imagines taking a soak at the end of a long work day.
At the end of the tour, there were only high praises from Tiara and Datin Cat about the luxurious space, its interior design and the functionalities of the unit. The Type B unit is an exemplar of ultra-luxury living at this exclusive designer condominium of AIRA Residence.
Whether you are looking for a home to downsize or retire in, or if you are looking for a residence without having to sacrifice the experience of living in a landed property, the Type B unit is the epitome of a home in the sky. Prestigiously situated at the hilltop of Jalan Batai in the coveted lands of Bukit Damansara, commanding spectacular views of the Kuala Lumpur city skyline, Mont Kiara and Petaling Jaya, AIRA Residence is an exclusive condominium which encapsulates the art of luxury living.
