"Tropical Style" showcases thirty-five contemporary Malaysian homes and resorts that feature the use of vernacular cultural forms and cross-cultural influences in new and exciting ways. From modern minimalist homes in Kuala Lumpur to wooden houses set in lush garden settings and secluded coastal and island beach retreats, all the homes have been selected for their stunning design, originality of concept and innovative fusion of age-old architectural patterns with a modern aesthetic sense.
