Based in the heart of the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), this building serves as the Kuala Lumpur headquarters of Prudential, one of the world’s largest insurance companies.
This much-awaited, 27-storey commercial tower offers 51,018 square metres of Grade-A office space, and was the culmination of close collaboration between Broadway Malyan, Prudential, IJM Corporation Bhd, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Bhd, and TRX City Sdn Bhd – the district’s masterplanners.
From the outset our aspiration was to create a building that was rooted in the surrounding area’s cultural context. To achieve this, we thought about how the tower interacts at the ground level, integrating with an open, inviting public space to welcome workers and visitors into the site and provide a feeling of quality throughout the arrival spaces.
It was in these spaces that we sought to honour and reflect the local culture in a meaningful way, thinking carefully about our use of materials, greenery, and the layout of the streetscape, in order to give the development a cohesive sense of Malaysian style.
