The Sudut House residence is a new built detached house in Bangsar. One of the intents is to get a sense of warmth through the building’s materiality. The primary outlook of the house utilizes common local clay bricks which was laid out skillfully by bricklayers. The building also utilizes large patterned steel grilles resembling the texture of bamboo made by steel workers. The high and slender grilles provides porosity to the house while providing needed security.
The layout consists of few segregated parts, separating the different zones and rooms in the house. This is primarily distinct on the first floor cutting out several double height void spaces. This allows for one to experience a sense of transition in terms of varying spatial volume. Natural light is washed over the slanted ceilings. The high ceilings of the Sudut House was a feng shui requirement by the client, while the hight also prevents the tropical heat from radiating near to the habitable spaces below. The house therefore usually feels cool due to this design feature and also having plentiful allowance for cross ventilation.
