Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus is one of the most sought-after universities in Malaysia, as it has won many awards through the decades; speaking volume of its prestige. In their journey to achieve world-class excellence, they have taken on considerable refurbishments to provide a conducive, future-forward and focused environment for all their students. This is particularly evident at the Lakeside Campus that covers an area of 27 acres of tropical greenery and 5.5 acre of man-made lake. For Taylor’s, the campus is more than just a place where students study, it is the nurturing ground for young minds of the next generation.
In bringing more resonance and understanding towards the project as well as playing our part as industry leaders, our Workspace team collaborated with Taylor’s Design School (TDS) student, Chong Yi Qing. She is majoring in Interior Architecture and collaborated on conceptualising and furnishing the space of the Heart Psychological Services waiting area. The result? A carefully curated space to provide serenity, calmness and ease to all who visit.

Chong Yi Qing gave a personal touch to students’ safe space; where intimate conversations can take place within the comfortable area. Since colours of environment contributes to moods, we used warmer hues of upholstered fabric for our furniture selection as it boosts the natural finishing of wood, a complement to the greenery of the lakeside view at the campus.
From top to bottom: Wood accent blends well with the softer hues of customised sofas and chairs’ colours.
Additionally, we included our modern Activity-Based Workspace (AWB) solution that offers comfortable working environments for individual and group usage in the following areas:
Students’ lounge area
Our furniture pieces are set seamlessly with the interplay of colours in large spaces. We selected a combination of seating choices such as office chairs and lounge chairs to cater to different needs and working styles. From spacious collaborative areas to private rooms, everyone is given an opportunity to pick and choose their own favourite nook.
