James_V1 (Riyang)

The surrounding development is highly urbanized with an eclectic design language that ranges from utilitarian public low cost housing architecture to post modern regional architecture. The idea is to break away from this eclecticsm and to stand out proud with a sense of self worth. However a method of expression has to be found so that the homes do not become part of the clutter. This is done by having the architecture expressing a value of life rather than a style; the value of joy in life, hence Riyang (Malay for joy). The vitality of joy is expressed as fins that seems to ripple dynamically and exuberantly with the wind.
