Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "With exciting photographs that convey expanses of space and frame jaw-dropping elements such as courtyard swimming pools and stairwells that seem to levitate, McGillick's book highlights powerful elements of International Modernism: transparency, texture, protection, and integration with the landscape. McGillick (Concrete, Steel, Glass) and photographer Kawana showcase a series of aspirational houses located in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Phillippines. A so-called "party house" in Singapore has its own karaoke lounge. The architect for a Malaysian home chose a steep lot that requires a dramatic, 56-step entry up a sweeping concrete spiral stairwell, illuminated from below and culminating in dramatic views of both the landscape and the interior. Built with recycled timber, Prachachuen House in Bangkok houses an extended family. Carphenie House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, utilizes cavity walls to reduce heat penetration and a free-standing wall that provides enough privacy to enable the windows to be left permanently open and also generates cross-ventilation. An appreciation of cultural heritage, use of eco-smart materials, and the strategic capture of natural ventilation are elements that make these elaborate home." -Paul McGillick, Publishers Weekly.

Inhaltsangabe:

With over 350 vibrant photographs, extensive commentary and architectural plans, this architecture and design book showcases the modern luxury homes of Asia.

The Sustainable Asian House celebrates modern architecture as an expression of environmental, social and cultural sustainability as seen in some of the most breathtaking luxury homes in Southeast Asia. Gorgeous residences in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines beautifully exemplify the trend towards sustainable architecture that engages with the natural world.

The 27 houses featured in this fascinating and stunningly photographed architectural digest provide endless inspiration for architects, designers, builders and home buyers. The Sustainable Asian House illuminates the region's reinterpretation of tropical architecture and the growing interest in traditional materials and craftsmanship.

There is a new emphasis on fresh air, natural light and spatial variety, reflecting the importance of well-being. Designers are considering issues such as orientation to the sun and prevailing winds to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint. Instead of treating the tropical climate as something to overcome, the architects featured in this book present regional solutions on how to live appropriately in the contemporary, tropical world.
