Proposing climate responsive design through sustainable approach case study at Tanjung Leman Beach Resort, Mersing, Johor / Mohamad Idzuan Jamal

Jamal, Mohamad Idzuan (2019) Proposing climate responsive design through sustainable approach case study at Tanjung Leman Beach Resort, Mersing, Johor / Mohamad Idzuan Jamal. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA (Kampus Puncak Alam).


A climate-responsive design response the weather conditions in the precise area where the area is propoposed. Climate responsive design takes into consideration seasonality, the direction of the sun (sun path and solar position), natural shade provided by the surrounding topography, environmental factors (such as temperature, wind, rainfall, humidity) and climate data (temperature, historical weather patterns, etc.) to design comfortable and energy efficient homes. This study, it will examine the responsive and sustainable landscape design of Tanjung Leman Beach Resort towards vibrant tourism spot. The physical character will emphasize on the function of open spaces, spatial linkages and preservation of natural features. The methodology of this study involves the implementation stages of secondary data such as future plan from local authority and existing data from previous researchers. The primary data has been identified through observation and data recorded method. All collected data are synthesised and identified the potential area to be developed and preserve. Based on the strategy and design ideas inspired from concept of "Bliss by Breeze" that has been transform into physical form in designing the open spaces to be more functional, systematic spatial linkages, and preservation of natural features as well as provide cool and comfort outdoor environment and save energy. Proposing climate responsive and sustainable landscape design through enhancing the spatial/arm and character will give a positive impact to the local and tourist through their experience that to be enjoyable and memorable. Hopefully, this project can be used as a design guidelines for stakeholders in proposing the responsive design and to give better performance of the human comfort and energy efficient for resort that located at coastal area in tropical environment.
