While there are many heritage buildings with over 50 years of age in Malaysia, many are then left abandoned to decay. It is clear that given proper planning and consideration for conserving these existing structures, we are presented with opportunities for adaptive reuse of buildings well designed to respond to the environment through passive means, without the need to demolish or clearing the existing green sites for new constructions. However, conservation of heritage architecture is not often discussed as part of the sustainable movement of architecture. This paper will discuss the process and aspects of architectural conservation in Malaysia and its relevance to the green building guideline.
