Architecture is just so magical, by playing simple form, the result could be unexpected, here we have experimentation with box, simple box, a module, which is played in the linear site facing Bandung.
The scheme consists of multiple small scattered boxes facing valley of Bandung, view of city light and view of surrounding pine trees. The modular boxes has several layer of stories such as construction and craftmanship issue which we try to limit the project to three to four meter module divided to 3 categories (main, transition, services) and several sub categories (living, bed, stairs) which the creates their own partiis. the second intention is to enhance such comfortable climate of Bandung , which has cool breeze, comfortable weather ranged from 20 – 22 degree to 27 degree – 28 degree celciuse which encouraged to open the openings, and skylight innovating with cross air circulation and airstacking effect. The third one is the act of considering limitation on expenditures such as the carbon foot print and thermal conductivity in the site which brings the use of selection of material which has the low thermal conductivity.
I met this one couple few weeks ago, they are young, full of promises. They have a dream to live in one beautiful house. I think they are mixture of wanderer , dreamer but has concern of realistic consideration. This journey of this beautiful, scattered natural boxes made by brick and liquid stones are just begun, hopefully it will be happy ending like what we dream for.
“we have spectacular view mas” Rusda said to me before. During our last site survey a month ago , “Look at the view, ” nurul said to me. They were right, the view was spectacular. It has two main points of view, to the valley and another will be to the hill when we can see pine trees. This time we will go for small little boxes which has spectacular view, ressesed, extruded dancing at the mountain with its soul.
Thank you for my dream team RAW for assisting in this project various people to test the premise over and over (Miftah, Tatyana, Rofi, Ali, Agung).
