‘In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. By Time, indeed humanity is in a state of loss. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of truth and in the mutual teaching of patience’ (Surah al-`Asr, 103:1-3)
"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

EVOLUTION OF BUILDING
The image above is a short remodelling exercise for an extension of a conservertory in a terrace house design. The idea is to illustrate to the planner how a renovation on the terrace design would be built should the potential buyers plan to renovate this house. This would then become a guide to its future extention.
The possibility for future extention is a fantastic idea of further developing a building thus evolving it from its previous form with new features. It would provide owners the opportunity to expand the building in order to accommodate their changing needs without comprimising the architectural value. It would eventually reduce the effect of undesirable terrace extention which very often does not only synchronise with the original design but also spoils the genuine beauty of perfectly planned building.
