An Affordable Alternative to Terrace Housing
52 MB, 49 A4 pages, 57 illustrations
“.......Honeycomb Housing by Mazlin Ghazali is dedicated to a design solution revolving around the availability of suitable land, the high cost of such land and the cost of a single family dwelling. Planners have long searched for solutions given these parameters. Malaysia has a burgeoning population and a finite amount of suitable building sites. The solution has been the unsuitable terrace house with all its inherent problems. Mazlin Ghazali has arrived at what seems to be an eminently suitable solution—i.e., the honeycomb plan. In this design he has tackled the parameters with élan.
Less space is dedicated to suitable high-density housing, if such a thing exists at all. Also, as applicable as the honeycomb solution appears to be, one wonders if it is appropriate to the varied topography of much of Malaysia. In Malaysia, the wanton destruction of forests is seconded by the pulling down, terracing or levelling of hills and ridges".
