There are no measurements mentioned in the video, but from the way it is portrayed it does seem somewhat shallow, yes. Besides that, i think it is an interesting video for people who want to acquint themselves with building their own house.
I quite like the design; it's not easy to build something nice of around 6x8m on a rather small plot of land.
High ceilings and a void/2nd floor where the warmer air will flow to with enough angin² (ventilation holes) to ensure good air flow. The higher walls have extra beams imbedded for structural integrity and the footplates in the back of the house allow an extra room on the 2nd floor. No lack of rebars in the concrete cast beams, columns and plates. In my area I doubt many developers will meet these standards.
The talang dalam (gutter) is bound to give one a headache, probably sooner than later. But that's the trade off you have to make in designs like these.
It's technical terminology used by soil engineers.shallow foundation and footing
