INTRODUCTIONFirst and foremost, the main idea is to change the selected site into a tourism as well as an agriculture area. For tourism, my main attraction is not only for the locals but also for the foreigners. Since were living in a multiracial county which I find really unique, I wanted to bring out that uniqueness towards this project. Looking at the tourism part, my main idea is to give out true Malayan traditional culture for the guests to experience which I think it will be worth it since they are visiting here. In this way, we can attract more tourists to visit our country. So in doing that, I had decided a theme for my homestay which is the Malayan Tradition. From the kampong style of the houses all the way to the food and drinks. As for the agriculture part, I had decided that it would be a great idea to open a tropical fruit farm. Here, guests, especially from the European countries, would get to be introduced with all the tropical fruits we have here in Malaysia. Guests can also taste the fruits as I had decided to have a tropical fruit buffet, freshly picked from the fruit farm. Guests can also buy some of the fruits here.Finally, with all of these ideas, I had proposed a tourism and an agriculture area to show the true colours of Malaysia.
BUBBLE DIAGRAMThe bubble diagram is normally used as a mind map to draw out ideas for the plan layout in a circular form.
CONCEPTUAL DIAGRAMThe conceptual diagram is the second step which we put all the ideas from the bubble diagram into our plan.
ACCESSIBILITYThe accessibility is very important as it tells you the vehicular pathway in and out of a certain area.
SCALE 1:500Based on the above plan, I had visualised to make the road a one way road to avoid any traffics. There are two access in my chosen site, so one of the access I have turned into the main entrance and another access is the exit.
MASTER PLANThe master plan is a detailed overall plan including the plantings and the greeneries.
Based on the above elevation of the front view of the homestay, there is a drop off area next to the car park. Here, it is easier for guest to load and unload their bags and suitcases. The drop off area has an easy access towards the registration area.
