Travel to Malaysia: Colonial Kuching (Residential)
The great majority of Kuching's residents live in post-colonial housing, but bits survive of the past, particularly on the waterfront upstream from the town's center.
Most of the houses of the Brooke era are elevated, metal-clad, and hip-roofed. Here's one in good shape.
A simpler example.
Simple but with classical columns.
Failing roof, propped up to stay up.
The basic form stays very constant, but there are endless variants, such as the wrap-around shutters of this house.
Another variant, a protruding wing.
