6 Best Glasshouse Event Space Rental Venues in Malaysia
Have you ever felt that almost everything about your event venue seemed perfect? There’s decent space, excellent facilities, and it’s all bundled into an affordable package. However, there’s just one thing — no outdoor view.
Certainly, being an event organizer in Malaysia post-pandemic is no easy feat. And we’re certainly not one to dispute those who aren’t necessarily sold on a glasshouse event space in favor of cheaper cost.
However, if you’re like us, and you need your event to have that outdoor aesthetic, then you’re in the right place.
Let us help you pick the perfect glasshouse event space!
Why Choose a Glasshouse Event Space?
Compared to regular event spaces, glasshouses bring in a lot of natural light. This can make the venue look bigger than it actually is. Not to mention, it’s an added beautifying element your decor can take advantage of.
Glasshouses are also in line with many modern design trends. We think closed spaces can be a little stifling. Not in the claustrophobic sense, but more in a way where it just makes us feel down. In fact, scientists have proven that natural light provides us with psychological benefits. It literally ‘brightens us up’.
Need we mention how natural light makes for great photos? Whether you’re chasing the dim-orange sunset glow or a bright mid-morning spotlight, natural light gives your pics a variety that no artificial lighting can make up for.
And how could we possibly forget outdoor photoshoots? Where you’ll often have a rich tapestry of greenery to take photos with at glasshouses, the closest substitute in an enclosed hall is a potted plant by the entrance.
Best Glasshouse Event Spaces in Malaysia
1. KEN Gallery, Menara KEN TTDI – For Corporate Events and Creative Exhibitions
Sitting in a relatively quiet part of TTDI, KEN Gallery looks like your typical office building from the outside. However, its rigid exterior belies a sophisticated space that’s dedicated to art.
KEN Gallery has four halls that can see over 150 pax each, and three of them are open for public reservation. So if you’re looking for a place to host an art exhibition, look no further than KEN Gallery.
Most of the space in KEN Gallery is enclosed, but it does sport several areas which have plenty of tall windows and glass ceilings, making it the perfect place for networking sessions or seminars.
In fact, even though it’s a very office-looking setup, there’s still plenty of cool ambient light entering the building. The event space itself is also filled with many smaller rooms ideal for breakout sessions.
2. White Ballroom PJ – When Size Does Matter
For a lot of event organizers like us, the first thing we always like to look at when it comes to event spaces is space. And if you’re searching for a giant canvas to flex some of those interior design muscles, White Ballroom PJ is the glasshouse to get.
The great thing about White Ballroom PJ is that it’s insanely huge, so when it comes to hosting large corporate events and weddings, the sky’s the limit. The tall glass windows let in a lot of natural light, stretching the already wide interior even further.
Up to 800 people can fit inside the whole space, and White Ballroom PJ provides you with tons of amenities like AV systems, WiFi access, as well as projectors, and screens.
3. Glasshouse Seputeh Event Space – A Thumbs-up for Weddings and Parties
Glasshouse Seputeh borders an area filled with bountiful shrubbery. The lush scenery is further accentuated by the wall-to-ceiling glass panels and the tall interior space.
If you’re a nature lover, then Glasshouse Seputeh will make you feel right at home.
Being situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Glasshouse Seputeh is easily accessible by anyone who lives in Klang Valley. There are three halls: the smallest, The Lawn which is able to house up to 50 guests at a time; and the biggest, Grand Court which host up to 250 pax.
Glasshouse Seputeh isn’t the cheapest option, but we like how it packages a complimentary stay and valet service into its bundles. There’s also a makeup room and lighting equipment and specialists so you don’t have to worry about prep.
4. Lightbox – A Rustic Space You’ll Love
Located in Sungai Buloh, Lightbox makes for a chic-looking event space with its exposed brick walls, iron pillars, and hanging lights. And owing to the natural light coming in through the upper windows, it’s a great venue for hosting modern weddings.
Even though the minimalistic artist-loft vibe in Lightbox makes it great for hosting cozy events, that doesn’t mean you can’t do corporate ones either. With a space capable of housing 450 people, there’s little difficulty when organizing company-wide excursions and training.
5. Amoris Grand Event Space – Luxurious Space with Modern European Decor
A little ways away from bustling Kuala Lumpur in Muar, Amoris Grand Event Space sports three separate venues, each of them capable of catering to over 100 pax at a time.
It isn’t the most spacious venue out there, but it’s great for hosting special events with close friends and family. Its halls are decked with beautiful chandeliers and tall glass panels which set a nice relaxing mood. The Euro-centric decor and pool further add to the modern luxury vibe of the whole space.
6. MOMENTS GLASSHOUSE JB – Cozy Night Event Space
Capable of housing 600 people at a time, MOMENTS GLASSHOUSE JB is no slouch with space, be it indoors or outdoors. Its packages start at RM8,000 for a daytime event and come with a PA system, projectors, air-conditioning, and WiFi.
Right behind the stage, you’ll find the massive floor-to-ceiling glass panels, which are perfect given MOMENTS GLASSHOUSE JB’s quiet location in Permas City. This means there isn’t as much light pollution as other venues in more urbanized areas, thus making it a good photoshoot venue not just during the day, but at night too.
While there isn’t a shortage of glasshouse event space rental options besides the ones on this list, we’ve narrowed them down to these six which we believe are best worth your time.
Event organizing is a time-consuming affair, after all.
