An attap dwelling is traditional housing found in the kampongs of Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Named after the attap palm, which provides the wattle for the walls, and the leaves with which their roofs are thatched,[1] these dwellings can range from huts to substantial houses. Until the nineteenth century even significant public buildings such as temples were built in this manner.
