Mazlin Ghazali graduated from Welsh School of Architecture with a B.Arch in 1984 and set up Arkitek M. Ghazali in 1993. Since the year 2000, the firm has built up a substantial portfolio of housing projects comprising almost 12,000 units, all of which are in the affordable category and most using system construction methods. In that time, Arkitek M. Ghazali also started R&D work, first in thermal comfort and then in new courtyard based housing layouts, resulting in the concept of “Honeycomb Housing” with patents for key aspects of the work. That R&D work has been successfully commercialized with pioneer projects completed in Johor Bahru, Bernam Jaya, Alor Gajah and Sungai Petani, and several others in the pipeline.
He co-wrote “Thermal Comfort Honeycomb Housing” in 2006.
