From the architect. Architectural concept

To swap the semi private living room area from rear to front part of the land. In doing this, the living will have a “borrowed” view to the adjacent public park.

To elevate the main “ground” floor which consist of living, swimming pool and garden to 3 (three) meter above street level, also to maximize the view to surrounding park.

To give a big, tropical “hat” to the building as a sunshade to the master bedroom at the second floor.

Its such as you read my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you just can do with some p.c. to force the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.

wow 4 cars!!!

that's the long-lasting issue in Indonesian architecture I suppose. big scale, excessive material, insensitive design and thoughtless owners!!

expensive house, cheap design..

I'd say it's a fairly good attempt already, considering all the humongous pseudo-classical bungalows built around every corner in the wealthier areas of Indonesia.

no character, no passion, no detail... so what is this?

that's a house for some rich kid,... i like the master stateroom.

jw · July 19, 2009

all the lines and planes... and materials. Is it just me? or does it seem like there is a bit too much going on in some of these interior shots. my eye doesn't know where to look! i also feel that the proportion of spaces isn't so balanced--- or maybe i'm just taken away by the size of that master suite. whatever the client desires i suppose.

architektenfreund · July 19, 2009

I might be wrong but the maids rooms are about the size of the masters bed!! and as far as I could read from the plans, they don't even have windows.
Maybe I should simply open a catalog about Richard Neutra and look at the same details without feeling nauseous.

And the maids don't even have a bathroom. Just a toilet.
