Gallery Residence

Opened in January 2011, Gallery Residence is a tangible symbol of SGA’s commitment to design and applauds innovation and creativity of internationally renowned local talents. The space itself is an ideal backdrop for showcasing SGA’s eclectic range of art and design exhibitions – providing a contemporary arena for contemporary art. The inspiring building is at the forefront of modern architectural style, boasting effective design for green living.

Gallery Residence was designed by the award winning architectural luminary Ken Yang in collaboration with SGA as an exhibition space that embraces aesthetic and conceptual innovation, in line with contemporary art thought. Gallery Residence presents unique green features including a wind catcher, bioswales and turf ramps, and is the first space of its kind in the region.

Gallery Residence also accommodates living and work spaces for artists and management who live in and maintain the building.

The interior galleries have Rio LED track lighting which more accurately shows the artwork, creates a comfortable and elegant atmosphere and is energy efficient. Garden lighting is a mixture of LED and Solar, selected and placed to emphasise building design, outdoor installations and landscaping features.

Gallery Residence was one of the first projects in Malaysia to receive Green Building certification and won a PAM (Architects) Excellence Award in 2011. The space has been twice  nominated for the Aga Khan Architecture Award.

Gallery Residence is a venue of choice for bespoke functions (e.g. dinners/luncheons, cocktails, launches, fashion features, weddings, filming). Please contact us.
