Description

“From a sequence of these individual patterns, whole buildings with the character of nature will form themselves within your thoughts as easily as sentences. -Christopher Alexander”

Information

Upstairs House

This tropical modern abode stands on 560 m2 corner plot in a townhouse complex in south Jakarta. It is the wish of the owner to have a house that has strong interaction with the natural surrounding environment and natural landscapes although it has no interesting views on its surroundings. They hope that the house will be a place where their close friends and families would come and gather on the weekend.

While many regularly houses place the private areas on a higher level, we took a different approach by consciously putting the private areas such as bedroom areas on the lower level so they can access to their bedrooms directly after a long tiring day.
