First and foremost, the main idea is to change the selected site into a tourism as well as an
agriculture area.Fortourism,mymain attractionisnot onlyforthe localsbutalsofor the foreigners.
Since we’re living in a multiracial county which I find really unique, I wanted to bring out that
uniqueness towards this project.
Looking at the tourism part, my main idea is to give out true Malayan traditional culture for the
gueststo experience whichIthinkitwill be worth it since they are visiting here. In this way, we can
attract more tourists to visit our country. So in doing that, I had decided a theme for my homestay
whichisthe Malayan Tradition.Fromthe “kampong”style of the houses all the way to the food and
As for the agriculture part, I had decided that it would be a great idea to open a tropical fruit farm.
Here, guests, especially from the European countries, would get to be introduced with all the
tropical fruits we have here in Malaysia. Guests can also taste the fruits as I had decided to have a
tropical fruitbuffet,freshlypicked from the fruit farm. Guests can also buy some of the fruits here.
Finally, with all of these ideas, I had proposed a tourism and an agriculture area to show the true
colours of Malaysia.

The accessibilityis very important as it tells you the vehicular pathway in and out of a certain area.
Based on the above plan, I had visualised to make the road a one way road to avoid any traffics.
There are two access in my chosen site, so one of the access I have turned into the main entrance
and another access is the exit.
The master plan is a detailed overall plan including the plantings and the greeneries.
Basedon the above elevationof the frontview of the homestay, there is a drop off area next to the
car park. Here, it is easier for guest to load and unload their bags and suitcases. The drop off area
has an easy access towards the registration area.

8. Car Park
Even the car park area has the wooden
touches which blends in the whole theme
of this homestay. Roofted car park area
helps to prevent the car for getting
hot on a sunny day.
To sum up everything, I think that the guests would have a great time staying here and learning
about some of the unique tradition of Malaysia.
