Abstract

Every place has its own unique architectural qualities which are not only in terms of its physical makeup but, on how it is perceived. Hence, designers need to be sensitive to those unique qualities so they can enhance and sustain, rather than destroying them. However, to understand these unique qualities, one needs to approach it from the perspective of their aesthetic principles. This is because aesthetic is a critical reflection on art, culture and nature. But the question is; what are these aesthetic and architectural elements; are they still valid for present application? Therefore, to address these issues, this paper seeks to investigate and illuminate on Kelantan traditional aesthetic values. Ten aesthetic elements were identified, thus, the paper illustrates by examples how these elements can be integrated into the architecture of contemporary homes.
