This is part of an ExpatGo editorial series featuring creative architecture in Malaysia and around Southeast Asia.
Located at Petaling Jaya, Selangor, this creative and Eco-friendly home project was built without removing a single tree, before, during and after construction. This project looked at integrating a new house into an existing building, without harming any of the fabric and trees around it.
The new house now has an assortment of cool green features such as ventilated cool roofing, wind turbines (a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical power), recycled and raw materials, solar sunscreen shading and rainwater collection.
Take a look at the photo gallery below to check out the house.
