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.

Based in Singapore, award-winning photographer Masano Kawana is one of the most exciting interior and landscape photographers at work in Asia today.

Review:

"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. 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

"I have gotten a glimpse today of The Sustainable Asian House by Paul McGillick and Masano Kawana as the Photographer. This book has been popular in Southeast Asia, specifically Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The book includes representation of tropical architecture and its growing interest in traditional materials and craftsmanship. It includes an emphasis on fresh air, natural light, and spatial variety. It has also talked about how designers are considering issues such as orientation to the sun and prevailing winds to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint. There are about twenty-seven houses featured in this fascinating and stunningly photographed study which will give interest, learning and inspiration to all." —AishaKristine.com blog
