Wind Tunnel responding to air stacking effect
This is an individual residence located in Jakarta/ The site is 8 m wide and 24 m deep owned by Charles Wiriawan and Irene, which is the typical conditions for dense row house in Jakarta. Like what happens, dense row house is happened because of too many bedrooms and corridors without inner courtyard inside the house. The design usually very humid and hot during the summer and rainy season because of house planning which doesn’t reflects to tropical sunshade and cross air circulation. In this case, the design offers the house not as simple and uncomfortably solution but as responsive as possible in passive design to redefine tropical house in simple way. West side which is the hottest surface during the year is blocked by solid wall which is the boundary between the house to the neighbor.The design placed the circulation as a continuous and sequential space which centers wind tunnel at the centre of the house which becomes living space, dining space and also, place where cross air circulation happens.For the wall, the design placed 600 mm x 1200 mm reinforced fibre concrete as covering of the whole walls providing insulation of heat from sun. The louvers on the facade are simulated carefully to cut direct sunlight. The glass and louvre reacts to save energy by providing natural ventilation for this house.
