Eleena Jamil. Eleena Jamil Architect

Established in 2005 and based in Kuala Lumpur, Eleena Jamil Architect (EJA) has earned a reputation as one of Malaysia’s leading architectural practices. With its series of expanding portfolio, it successfully engages with the Asian city and its nuances to bring an accumulated richness of expression to the work produced. Projects by EJA office are informed by the desire to root them to place by way of exploring the experiential potential of form, material and construction and a concern for the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability. As it continues to grow, EJA aspire to create more research-based, design-led architecture that is contemporary and rooted to its context, at all scales. 

Eleena Jamil trained at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University in United Kingdom. After a short working stint, she joined the architecture faculty at Cardiff as a teaching assistant while completing her MPhil and PhD postgraduate research. Eleena set up her own architectural practice in Kuala Lumpur in 2005 and it has since been growing steadily with an expanding portfolio of work that has won international accolades. Working within the context of South-east Asia and beyond, her work has been founded on research into specific social and climatic imperatives of each brief within a broader cultural framework.
