Rudinara Salinger Residence

Abstracted from Ahmad Faizal Yahya's fotopages post: Built in six and a half years and completed in 1993 by a Master Builder from Kelantan, this residence won the prestigous Aga Khan Award in 1998 under the residence category. Built mostly using chengal and resah wood; the former is one of the toughest wood in the world. Believe it or not, this house was built without a single nail and no proper measuring tape was used!  According to the owner of the residence, Dato' Dr. Haji Rudi Salinger, the late Master Builder Ibrahim bin Adam had only one eye and one arm.  A Master Builder indeed.
