Due to the culture of Suth, there are many styles of architecture, ranging from Islamic, Indian and Chinese styles. The shape and size of the houses are built according to their respective cultural beliefs. Houses in Peninsu-lar Malaysia are built for the tropics, and common elements include high roofs, balconies, ceilings and windows designed primarily to circulate air and keep the interior cool.
The exquisite craftsmanship of traditional Malay architecture in Malay-sia makes it ideal for tropical environments, such as stilts, which use bottom-up drafts to keep the interior cool while avoiding the occasional flood. The steeply sloping roof and wide windows not only facilitate the flow of wind through the hall, but also use complex carving techniques to make it look different.
