Disguised of The Box

“From a building right in front of my windows, I can observe the speed of the sunrises and sunsets. The voice of children playing, laughing, yelling and crying on the playground craw; up to the place where I write.”

– Andrea Hirata


Basically the building is not supposed to be created “pompous”, “arrogant” and impressed the enormous weight. Asking and persuading the client about the truly needs is one of solution. With clients who are enthusiastic and helped by the intense communication, the value of understanding the need of space is fulfilled. Since breaking down the building into several main masses was not enough to prevent the building to be impressed pompous, we use horizontal clear lines to break the scale.
