Tropical Style

Contemporary Dream Houses in Malaysia

  • customer reviews
Tropical Style presents contemporary houses, apartments and resorts that evoke the essence of the modern "Malaysian style"—a combination of indigenous cultural forms, organic building materials, exquisite local craftsmanship and adaptations to the sun-drenched tropical climate. Particularly relevant today in a world that is trying to be as "green" as possible, the architecture of Malaysia historically evolved to integrate environmental factors into traditional building techniques and designs. From vernacular houses set in lush tropical gardens to contemporary courtyard homes and idyllic beach villas modeled on traditional Chinese and Malay houses, this book celebrates the fascinating multicultural and multifaceted eclecticism that is modern-day Malaysia. With over 350 stunning color photographs, Tropical Style will delight and inspire those who wish to apply these ideas in any global setting.
