Park Roof House / MDA Architecture

July 7, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

The house was designed based on the owners’ aspiration: at once a serene place for weekend relaxation and a precinct filled with greenery, light and absolute privacy. Therefore, the design team decided to separate the house into 2 parts with a twist of split-level arrangement to create privacy and optimize the space of the internal frontage. As this area is used for many mobility activities, each balcony and set of stairs is particularly customized and vary from floor to floor to avoid repetition in moving and maximize the utilization.

In an 8 meters front and 16-meter depth lot, removed from a conventional apartment scheme, where only one apartment could have a private exterior space, we opted for two independent households similar to a townhouse. This left each house with a front of only 4 meters, which implicated a big challenge to solve the program but we managed to transform this challenge into a possibility to generate a unique space.

Vinyasa House / Aaksen Responsible Aarchitecture

July 6, 2020 Pilar Caballero 0

Vinyasa House is an earthy, warm home for an urban family that is rooted in a holistic connection to nature. The house is a true escapist from the bustling city of Jakarta, forming an eco-conscious sanctuary, innately relaxing and healing for a better living. The south-facing façade is potentially maximized by having a living area faces towards the east, bringing enormous positive energy from the east sun, and bigger peripheral view to the east side with lush scenery.

Although the interior layout that we found was similar to the original, all cabinetry and materials had been modified, except for the steel blinds that were repaired and incorporated into the new project.

We have slightly rotated the direction of the house’s layout at an angle, to ensure privacy from the neighboring buildings. we have also built a wooden fence on the south side of the site to block visual any contact between passersby and the residence.
