The purpose of this study is to elucidate on the regional design approach of two modern administrative buildings in Malaysia; former Prime Minister’s Office (1967) and Parliament Malaysia (1963) that was built during the post independence era in a comparative manner. This is to explicate the relationship of design and adaptation towards the regional context by focussing on the environmental aspects. Using structuralism paradigm and semiotic methodological approach, the relationship between building design and sustainable aspects were observed. It is evident that indoor comfort plays a major role in designing administrative building alike. This paper is of value to practicing architects and the society as it offers new insights by formulating design approaches in designing public architecture in Malaysia.
