Almaz Architect Sdn. Bhd. passionately believes in incorporating design elements from nature. Our inspiration comes from the history that resounds throughout the Malaysian forests, and the age-old traditions that were passed down from generation to generation. Water and landscape features are actively integrated into the design of the building to allow man to feel connected to the outside.
Years of experience in the industry have pushed us to the forefront of innovative and contemporary developments.
We have a constant stream of success in project management pertinent for the client’s strategic frameworks.
The company’s philosophy is always put our clients’ needs and wishes first. We use the latest BIM technology in the field to visualise our clients’ dream buildings and turn it into reality. At AASB, we practice effective cost management to suit the client’s financial plan.
