From the architect. FengShui is an old Chinese topography, which believes that man, building, and nature should live harmoniously in a positive synergy.

Based by that belief, the owner of this house believe that applying FengShui into his house will increase the living quality for the whole household, since the applications can be seen real in daily life routines.

Beside of the FengShui, which becomes the main base for zoning the whole area of this house, the architect also tried to presenting modern architecture into this building, so that the house is not only worth for its functionality, but also being aesthetic.

The whole zoning of this house is adjusted to the calculations of the FengShui master which been made before. The architect only completing and translating them into architectural norms, so that a ‘dialogue’ between FengShui and architecture could be tied in.

Simple but hold a strong character. Both of these terms are the things that the architects wanted to pull in into his design.

The building façades basically consist of geometric plane which emphasized by lines, both vertically and horizontally. The massive planes combined with glass material and softened by applying wood lattice on the top area.

For the interior, lighting and air circulation is being optimized to the maximum. At the stair area, there is a skylight along the staircase to present a “dramatic” effect to anybody who steps on it. The same method is also applied to the dining area which gets light from the skylight through the glass floor above it. On the third floor, especially along the bedroom corridor, architecture language is appear as shadows which caused by the details and architectural component that designed by the architect.
