What if you are informed that there is a new house concept in Malaysia, where a house is affordable, and its materials are vastly different from traditional housing materials. Precisely, this is how we present Rumah Comel – an affordable, sustainable, modern and quick-build home.


Tiny Living Space

Accordingly, in this article, we will share with you the things you need to know about Rumah Comel – the rise of the concept, the materials used, the price range, and the pros and cons.

Rumah Comel is a new house concept inspired by James Yeoh, the managing director of Solid Horizon Sdn Bhd. James hopes everyone can afford a high-quality house without straining themselves in terms of time and money. Also, the team begins to notice the shift in traveller’s house preferences from a traditional hotel to experiential accommodation. That truly inspires Rumah Comel to construct a modular home that contributes to society by working toward Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals.
