Remember the trip i mentioned last Thursday?!!…
We visited the Sime Darby’s Eco House, (it is an Ideal House which adopting the passive cooling features of a traditional malay house. They integrated the traditional malay concept into modern design and tadaaaa…)
(This is the view from entrance) *nice kann??*
The house was design and construct with IBS method however, this house is special because we still can do some renovation which normal IBS cant do as long as we know the point where to start; as the jointing method used bolt and nat. For ease, consult a specialist or just simply get back to the drawing to dismantled or add another partition. But, make sure, let the specialist do for you.
Natural ventilation, energy consumption and natural resources like rainwater are crucial in the design therefore, the usage of cooling facilities like air cond is limited in the house. Only when it is too hot, the cooling device will activate itself and blows to reinstate the thermal comfort inside the house. Once the place has reach the desired humidity level, it will stop blowing. What about the rainwater??guess….
Rainwater were collected from its gutter (roof drain) and at the toe of slope in front of the house (water will go inside the lined drain to the underground chamber and tank for processing, similar to the water inside gutter) for filtering, etc etc. While the grey water (the waste water normally we refer to water from toilets..he he he), will undergo water treatment at nearby lake and reused for landscape irrigation (my God, i could not imagine if the spokesperson said they reuse the water for bathing or cooking…peoples went to the washroom twice okay before the briefing)
This house also equipped with solar panel but (i dont remember how many pieces because i nearly collapsed during the briefing, we had our lunch before..ha ha ha) =D.. so nakal I..
The most interesting part when we toured around, everyone pay attention to the first checkpoint briefing……..
HOWEVER, at the rest checkpoints, what we did??guess.. guess….
“we got ourselves busy capturing photos..every students scattered aroundthe house posing here and there..
(but I didnt,..i captured parts of the house, being so curios about the thunder, the roofing design, thermal comfort, insulator and busy with my imagination to own the house..berangan je yg boleh kan!)”
The next house located in Bukit Jelutong (I forgotten the taman name, but its one of the Sime Darby’s properties). It was the second place we went to, very nice and obviously unaffordable for people like me, (as counted, even if i worked for 10 years, still, i cant buy the house…its for orang kaya only..its cost you 5 million bucks..whom should i marry then..tun?? datuk wira panglima negara?? dot dot bla bla lah if i want this!..oh myyyy..ini pun, angan je la..). Its a bungalow woman! of course its expensive…~
*but secretly wishing….insya Allah, I afford to buy one for my parents too, similar design, comfy, safe but at a CHEAPER price..i repeat.. CHEAPER..amin!*
Conclusively, our visit ends at Masjid dot dot dot..(i forgotten the name too, alamak! so nenek me!) ha ha ha..we went for prayers and then off to Skudai..Everyone slept in the bus except me
maybe, I didnt notice people at the back but one guy caught my attention.. (he was sleeping upside down! oh my! its either he was too khusyuk sleeping or he was diving in his dream!) ha ha ha…
I left you with a few photos taken at both houses…..ENJOY~
erm, thats it…..
* i prefer this one..i dont mind the house, etc etc…the frame is meaningful, its plain but i am so in love with the places mentioned inside the frame, hahahaha….*
p/s: how i wish to visit those places with my future husband…=)
