Kampung house


Malaysia has some lovely traditional architecture. I've always wanted to do a project on traditional Malaysian buildings. I had hoped to take lots of reference photos this last holiday, but the weather and family commitments meant I only got one photo - of a Malaysian village, or 'kampung' house; as you see here.

There's something really compelling about these lovely wooden structures on stilts (safe from flash floods and wild animals). I might start looking up pictures on flickr - but its not quite the same as drawing from your OWN inspiration...
