About the Book
"Contemporary Penang is no longer a pristine island but a modern metropolis...urban aesthetic and architecture – which have been taken for granted for decades – are now re-appreciated. With growing international interest and the efforts of a local heritage movement, identity and traditions are being renewed. In the 21st century, a new generation has come to appreciate what Penang has to offer. Substance has always been there and, with a little polish, Penang’s heritage homes are beginning to glisten in what Peter Carey calls ‘that almost perfect island’."
Author-Khoo Salma Nasution

Homes of Penang poses a stunning legacy of cultural and historical insights through the architectural styles of Penang’s dwellings. These styles, which envelops the form, the structure, and the overall culture and attitude of living, takes you on a vivid journey through space and time. In this book, Khoo Salma Nasution will take you through the growth of the Penang home from its traditional roots in Anglo-Malay housing styles to the eclectic mixed abode of today.
