To design a cottage industry comprising both residential and small industry purposes. Petaling Jaya Old Town is a town abandoned by the younger generation. The historical value of the town was covered up by a layer of shabby and unmaintained look.
People perceived the town by its appearance without knowing the inner beauty of PJ Old Town. In PJ old town, people dumped away their furniture when they are broken and worn out, same like elderly who got abandoned by their children in the nursing home.
Every man has his own story. Judging physically by look, the elderly is often seen as old, powerless and plain. Nevertheless, they are rich in their mentality and spirituality with their past experiences, talents, skills and charisma.
Old furniture may seem defective, damaged and faulty, but what they made up of are the rare and quality materials that may have been through remarkable history even interesting stories embedded behind its imperfect appearance.
Antique should be given second chance likewise for the elderly. They are not worthless but their values were obscured and covered up by their appearance. Hence, the proposed antique revival industry will turn PJ Old town into a new artsy, vintage and hipster attraction.
