VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd was established in 1987 as the original entity within the VERITAS Design Group, and has since experienced rapid growth, expanding into all areas of professional architectural services. Today, despite its relative maturity, VERITAS Architects continues to pursue a dynamic approach to design founded on innovation and the principles of professionalism.
VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd has been honored over the years to be commissioned on award-winning architectural projects for major international organizations and public listed companies, both within Malaysia and overseas. Completed projects of the firm have been published widely in the local media and the Principals have presented their work and ideas at numerous academic and professional forums.
As a part of the VERITAS Design Group, VERITAS Architects can efficiently integrate related professional services provided by its sister companies: planning, interior design, landscape design and quantity surveying and project management. The group’s resources include over 350 staff within its 3 Malaysian offices (Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor) and 6 international offices.
VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd has adopted a flexible and adaptable approach to handling architectural design projects, tailored to respond to the specific needs of each particular project and the decision-making process of the Client. At VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd, the quality and consistency of professional service on each project takes precedence over theoretical design goals. Consequently, the firm’s work is marked not by a fixed stylistic signature, but rather by a consistent approach inspired by the principles of good design, environmental concern and contextual integrity.
Generally, office buildings can be either owner-occupied or speculative. While one requires in-depth understanding of the client’s specific needs, the other demands design flexibility for a wide range of potential tenant types. High-rise office towers offer the unique potential of being iconic symbols within their urban environment. VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd has had extensive experience in handing a wide range of office buildings in all categories.
Mixed-use development has evolved into a common feature in today’s dense dynamic cities. By bringing together the various components of urban activity into a singular environment, mixed-use developments are capable of creating unique and invigorating experience for their users. VERITAS is proud to have contributed our expertise and experience to this important project type through several key projects.
High-rise and high-density residential developments are one of the primary areas of VERITAS expertise. These towers define the skyline of urban concentrations and support the residential density which activate and empower the city. Whether they are icons of luxurious exclusivity or more conservative blocks of efficient affordable housing, high-rise residential towers present unique challenges such as vertical transportation, arrangement of common facilities and privacy of residents. VERITAS has won numerous awards and accolades for its design of cutting-edge high-rise projects across the world and continues to be a thought-leader in this category of work.
Not all multi-family residential developments are high-rise. In fact, except for inner-city locations, the vast majority of residential buildings are linked-townhouses, low-rise clusters and landed gated communities. Especially at the outskirts of large cities, these solutions offer residents the affordability of suburban locations with the convenience of proximity to the workplace. VERITAS has built up an extensive portfolio of successful low-rise residential developments, in both landed and strata-titled forms. Many of these projects have won recognition for innovative design as well as developmental success and will remain a priority for VERITAS in the future.
Private homes are the staple of the architecture profession, and they offer a wide range of opportunity for design exploration and expression. More than any other project type, the private home challenges the architect to meet the very specific and often complex spatial/functional needs of individual Clients, the family. VERITAS adopts a highly personalized approach in its professional service on this project type and is extremely proud of its contribution to the tradition of single-family residences. While many of its completed projects have won recognition and awards, the greatest satisfaction is to know that a family has found a new home.
Leisure projects present the opportunity to explore the limits of lifestyle and fantasy. VERITAS Architect Sdn Bhd’s involvement in leisure development is no less extensive with projects ranging from tropical resorts designed to blend with their surroundings to modern urban hotels up-market serviced apartment and gold/family clubhouses.
VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd has completed a wide range of institutional projects ranging from primary, secondary and tertiary educational facilities to corporate training centres, medical facilities and religious buildings. With their potential for dramatic symbolism, institutional programs offer exciting design challenges which VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd has successfully met.
Aviation and aviation-related project types present exciting design opportunities to express the spirit of travel and technology. Airports have become more than just transit facilities, evolving into retail, hospitality, food and beverage and entertainment complexes. This is also an area of expertise that VERITAS has established over 30+ years with completed and proposed aviation and aviation-related projects spanning across the Asian continent. These include passenger terminals and lounges, airline catering, administrative offices, airport cargo and customs/immigration/quarantine buildings for major airlines and aviation-support operators.
The future of land-based mobility is mass-transit. Aside from self-propelled transportation (walking/cycling) it is the most viable and environmentally sustainable solution to connect people and goods across both short and long distances. Mass Transit systems (both rapid and otherwise) also make cities more liveable and operationally efficient. VERITAS is proud of its extensive experience in this project type across the world, whether it be Light Rail Transit (LRT), Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), High-Speed Rail (HSR), Heavy Rail or Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). Mass Transit also complements Transit Oriented Developments (TOD), another area of VERITAS expertise.
Technology intensive and light-industrial facilities have specialized function-related needs, which greatly influence the building design. Consequently, technical and production knowledge is a very important asset in handling such projects. Successful involvement in several technology intensive and industrial projects has proven VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhd’s ability to handle these technical requirements without sacrificing the architectural character of the building.
From the conventional shop-offices to hypermarkets, shopping complexes and hybrid malls, retail outlets are unique in their need to incorporate special customer friendly features such as public zones spaces and art, in addition to providing flexible tenant spaces for retail activity. Recognizing this, VERITAS Architects Sdn Bhs has successfully completed numerous retail projects throughout Malaysia and remains one of the most prolific architects in this building type.
