Before sustainable architecture became a trend, Tan Tjiang Ay had already been applying the concept in his works. He has been focusing on residential design for most of his career and developed designs that encourage the inhabitants to live efficiently.

He believes that architects are “doctors” for building spaces in the environment. He builds efficiently and mindfully when it comes to nature and neighbourhood. He treats his designs as a person because man-made objects have similar characteristics to men. For one, they have to be functional and be able to breathe.

Despite of his Reductionism style, Tan Tjiang Ay brings his best effort to insert local influences into his design, without overwhelming it with decoration.
