The shape grammar which derived from the design analysis of the award-winning Rudinara residence is presented in this paper. Such an inspiring design as Rudinara has a potential to become a new local style in architectural composition. However, there were less effort, if any, to analyse and discuss on the design and documenting the findings for the benefit and easy reference of others especially architects and designers who wish to manipulate the design style for their new projects. Shape grammar is a method to analyse and understand known and existing designs and to produce new designs through computation with shapes. Details from the analysis of Rudinara were used to establish the design rules for basic composition which were then applied to create new designs. Step by step application of the rules and generation of Rudinara design is shown and at the end of this paper two new basic compositions derived from the application of the Rudinara grammar are revealed together with the impressions of the detailed design.
