Building materials for Malaysia
I'm just wondering whether wood is a good material to use in Malaysia, which is hot and sunny? Is it true that wood soothes the spaces?

Alma, I think you will find Malaysia has a humid tropical climate. Wood is used for many buildings, particularly traditional / vernacular architecture, but the main object for human comfort is to shade the heat of the sun and allow breezes to cool the spaces.
