The “The Fan House” is a 3-storey house located in the lush greenery of Janda Baik forest in Pahang. It consists of 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms with approximately 6,800 sq. ft of enclosed and terrace areas.
The site terrains gently slope down from the adjacent public road to the lower platform. There are 2 existing platforms on site. The first platform is approximately 46 ft down from the public road to the lower platform.
The inspiration came from the natural contour of the sloping yet curvilinear terrain and forested surroundings. With the sculptural form in mind, all the functions and requirements of the owner is nicely incorporated in. It’s not the usual “form follows function” approach.
To minimize the earthwork and interference of the existing slope, the house hugs the terrain unobtrusively.
Despite the simple and modern look, the house open plan living/dining and dry kitchen areas are designed with tall ceiling heights with well lit interior spaces to allow the natural air ventilates within it. A slightly curved balcony spanning 55ft (17m) long and 9ft (2.7m) wide next to the open living/dining areas allow the dwellers to fully enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful panoramic view of the forest.
The unobtrusive design blurs the barrier between the outdoor and indoor spaces.
As an architect, it was challenging to design, construct and supervise the work due to the shape of the building situated on a very steep terrain while ensuring minimum cutting of trees in the forest.
All the hard works and supports from the contractors, engineers and workers pay off; we have overcome all these obstacles and produced yet another beautiful landmark in the deep forest.
