Air Itam Penang

Situated in the vicinity of the renowned Kek Lok Si temple in Air Itam, Penang, is a Buddhist monastery that shares a rather different approach when it comes to its architecture. Centred on the idea of a well-ventilated environment with flowing spaces and as much natural lighting as possible, the Monastery features a red bricked wall with protruding bricks that give it a 3D effect, full height windows that overlook the lush outdoor greenery and a splash of terracotta colours that brings a rustic feel to the overall ambiance.
