Keranji House by SML Architects

The Keranji House is a small bungalow sited along Lorong Keranji 6, Tabuan Jaya in suburban Kuching. The owners, a well-travelled couple from Kuala Lumpur with two grown children, desired a retreat for their family and a haven their extended family of rescued cats and dogs. They had an appreciation for what was natural, honest and embraced the idea of openness.

We decided that the house would have a more reserved and formal frontage towards the street and then open up and embrace the existing garden and trees at the back. On approach, a veil of laced bricks hovers over a reserved front; a mask from which one could privately peer out from. As one passes this threshold, the home immediately softens, opens up, and embraces one into the soul of the house; the garden.

Four large existing acacia trees were kept and became pivotal to the whole design. Adopting a north-south orientation, the building was designed around these trees; one marking the entrance and the others forming the courtyard beyond where the house was sculptured around. Private spaces were then carefully organised into two double-storey pavilions, centrally linked, all over-looking the courtyard.

The Keranji house reflects the essence of tropical living. It shades, it breathes, it welcomes the outside in and embraces the elements. Permeability is expressed consistently through a play of laced bricks, concrete blocks, steel screens, timber and glass; Permeable to the elements, permeable to the residents.

Concrete Pavilion by MNSC Architects

Set in a matured sub-urban neighbourhood of Kuching City, the Concrete Pavilion sits on a triangular site surrounded predominantly by 2-storey high row houses. Resembling a concrete fortress with occasional openings, the overall building mass is shaped by the outline of the triangular site in relation to the contextual constrains of neighbour proximity as well as the sun path. The deliberate interweaving of the public and private programme across semi-outdoor spaces serves to amplify the occupant’s sense of locality and awareness of the external environment without compromising comfort in the tropical climate.

This CPD will examine the roles and responsibilities of the Architect under the Housing Development Act (Act 118 Peninsular Malaysia 2007) and the Sarawak Housing Ordinance (1993) and related regulations. It will cover an overview of the two sets of laws in force in West Malaysia and Sarawak and point out the major differences. A brief outline of the certification process under the housing acts and ordinances and the management of quality in relation to this certification is reviewed. Managing common defects and complaint is also considered.
