In a holistic approach of storytelling design, our methodology embodies that of a journey, each one unique from any other. The process begins at its core, rigorous research within the cultural context that informs the insightful experience, textures and forms of each space. We believe concepts are core and are a reflection of each design manifestation.
Our design process allows us to push our capacity out of conventional formulas into new and unchartered ground. We strive to practice a simultaneous interaction between experience, form, light and materiality on macro and micro scales. This interaction is significant as it creates meaningful context to each project and its final built forms.
Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources, our detailed craftmanship combined with a vast collection of unique materials produced intricately by skilled artisans bring about endless possibilities of creation. These bespoke interiors, architecture, objects and landscape fuse together to create immersive environments. We bring concepts to reality with detailed, photographic visuals and animated scenes that portray the actual space. Combining aesthetics with functionality, via immersive technology, we create a visceral way of communication that transcend the boundaries of language, time and geographical locations.
In everything we undertake, DesignstudioMVH is defined by innovative thinking, professional responsibility and a passion for collaboration. We believe the inter-exchange of knowledge through different partners increases our ability for better spaces and built environments. Our team is committed to the realization of each designs, small and large. This process ensures that the integrity of the design remains from beginning to the end. We are dedicated to a detailed execution and ongoing communication with our clients, consultants, builders and artisans throughout the entire process.
Feadship Yacht – Slice
In the spirit of Zaha Hadid’s sweeping contours, this yacht design presents undulating silhouettes and sculptural fluidity, creating an immersive journey throughout the vessel. Soft textures mirror the ocean’s motion, while sleek, aerodynamic profiles add to the aesthetic. Bespoke furniture, leather-clad with detailed stitching, softens the sharp lines and reflective surfaces, creating a continuity that pays homage to the brand’s signature look.
Every structure within the yacht emphasizes the beauty of the natural environment. Generous windows and openings blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, offering uninterrupted views of the ocean. A stunning atrium provides sightlines through the yacht’s vertical levels, and a glass panel slicing through the vessel heightens the sense of inside-outside living. This transparency allows the sea to become a vital part of the interior design.
The yacht exemplifies ultimate refinement, blending the finest materials in a beautiful balance. The main mood is captured by marble, leather, and timber, while lush carpets and silk-like cushions add to the expansive space’s elegance. Handcrafted materials such as mother of pearl and onyx bring a tactile richness, and intricate stitching on leather underscores furniture contours.
The yacht’s architectural layout features a central pool, offering a sense of layered living, bringing nature into the vessel. From the Sky Lounge above, guests can view the water surface through the pool’s atrium. Deck furniture, custom-made and upholstered in soft fabrics, enhances this serene setting.
The main deck, located above the swimming pool, features floor-to-ceiling windows and a vertical strip of glass across the yacht’s length, maximising natural light and views. The Owner’s Stateroom is a soothing sanctuary with a warm monochromatic palette and textural contrasts of leather, bronze, and carpet, all enhancing the sense of privacy and luxury.
The Jacuzzi lounge, with its curved seats and warm tones, offers an intimate and private space, the bespoke mosaic tiles reflecting the beauty of the ocean. Glass floors create a sense of floating, intensifying the experience. The yacht’s elegance is further accentuated by a shagreen coffee table, the top mirroring the yacht’s streamlined shape.

Aira Bar & Lounge
Crafted by Designstudio MVH in response to Selangor Properties’ vision, The Lounge embodies an amalgam of leisure, business, and luxurious living. Situated in the prestigious AIRA Residence, it serves as a unique oasis for hosting, work, and wellness.
The design ethos behind The Lounge embraces a vivid tapestry of materials and textures. Cracked gold and black mirror vaults at the bar, reflective metallic surfaces, and an outdoor mosaic wall collectively amplify the space, instilling depth and drama into the neutral milieu. A palette of bronze, champagne gold, Marquina marble, and rippled glass bathes the environment in warmth, brilliance, and glamour. Sculptural forms such as sofas and armchairs, coupled with balcony bars, evoke a sense of effortless sensuality amidst dramatic textures.
The Lounge transforms your sensory experience, inviting relaxation, engagement, and enjoyment amidst a backdrop of gourmet indulgences. Nestled on Level 1 of AIRA Residence, it boasts a sprawling 933-square-foot deck, embraced by a beautifully landscaped garden.
Evoking a sophisticated club ambiance, The Lounge transports guests into an extraordinary world, nestled within the tranquility of Damansara Heights. Upon entry, The Gallery welcomes guests with a burst of opulent finishes and a revolving grand floral centerpiece. Living and entertainment areas, office spaces, bedrooms, and wet and dry kitchens radiate from this nucleus, while stunning, sculptural furnishings, rich carpets, and herringbone oak flooring elevate the living and dining experience.
Inspired by bars in New York and Tokyo, The Lounge’s bar impresses with hand-crafted finishes, while a pair of black marble consoles serve as perfect stages for display or dining. The kitchens, widely recognized as some of Kuala Lumpur’s finest, integrate seamlessly into the entertainment area.
Three distinct spaces compose the expansive balcony, perfect for outdoor entertainment: The Cove, a cozy lounge with bar access; The Counters, an open-plan area adorned with organically shaped island countertops, bronze bar stools, and mood lighting; and The Cigar Room, a secluded yet well-ventilated space encapsulating the essence of a classic whiskey and cigar room – the perfect finale to an evening of entertainment.
Perched atop Jalan Batai’s crest, the lofty Aira Residence graciously invites the sublime views one can only enjoy from such elevated serenity. The orientation towards Kuala Lumpur gifts residents with mesmerizing vistas of the city skyline, cloud formations, and the tranquil hues of the sky.
The design seeks to harness these striking panoramas within the home, mirroring the cityscape’s geometric patterns for an inherent sense of belonging. Infused with urbane textures and shapes, the design engenders an enduring luxury in each home, creating a skyscape sanctuary.
Observing the horizon and the city profile, abstract patterns are echoed in the carpets and artwork, repeating linear forms that mimic the contours of the structures, tying the views and interior together.
The notion of depth permeates the residential space, crafting transitional areas from one zone to the next, while ensuring clear sightlines framing the scenic expanse. The application of subtly transparent materials like reeded glass, beaded frost finish, and layered mirror cultivates this depth perception.
Smooth, reflective surfaces adapt to the shifting skyline, continually modulating the ambiance within the residence. This tonal strategy ensures the view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline remains the central focus, even from within the dwelling. Delicate touches like sleek profiles soften the sharp lines and reflective surfaces. Furnishings enveloped in stitched leather lend a tactile suppleness, refining the overall design narrative.
