S11 House by ArchiCentre

This contemporary single-family house located in the established suburb of Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, was designed by local architecture firm ArchiCentre. The S11 House is a 12,000-square-foot home that was designed around the beautiful idea of the abundance of trees in the tropics.

Many of the homes materials were reused from the demolished 1960s-era house that previously stood on the site. Old concrete roof tiles were crushed for gravel fill, clay bricks were cleaned and used as feature walls, steel was sold off to local manufacturers, and roofing timbers were used for formwork. In the end, the interior of the S11 house has bare, natural finishes that complement each other very well. Concrete, common red clay tiles, FSC-certified timber flooring, and cement plaster are all exposed with minimum paint. Quote from Inhabitat.com
