Recent residential architecture completed across Southeast Asia just goes to show the beauty of taking advantage of what you have. Dealing with a tropical climate, that is to say hot and humid with lots of rainfall, the region unsurprisingly loves very indoor/outdoor abodes, emphasizing great natural light and ventilation.
