00-Otten Coffee Bandung . Otten Coffee bertempat di jalan pasir Kaliki Bandung, daerah pusat kuliner yang sudah sejak lama ada di Bandung. Otten Coffee ingin mengembangkan konsep dimana pengunjung mendapatkan pengalaman menikmati kopi, ruang pameran, gudang, kantor, dan kemungkinan pengembangan ke depannya.. .
Bangunan 2 lantai eksisting terdiri struktur besi dengan tampias hujan dan kebocoran di beberapa titik. Beberapa hal yang menjadi potensi desain adalah langit – langit yang cukup tinggi, bentang balok yang lebar di eksisting. .
Strategi pertama adalah merenovasi sisi tampias hujan dengan memberikan kanopi yang menggantung di atas kolom lengkung bata. Hal ini menciptakan repetisi lengkung yang membentuk gua yang terbuat dari bata. Dibawah kanopi diletakkan kisi – kisi besi yang dicat menyerupai kayu untuk mempertahankan durabilitas.
. Strategi kedua adalah memanfaatkan lengkungan bata yang artistik dan fungsional sehingga terbentuklah vista pertama memasuki ruang lobby dimana klien bisa menempatkan, mengkurasi pameran dalam bentuk desain yang ergonomis. Display pameran ini menarik karena bisa direpetisi di dalam sistem dry panel dengan motif semen yang terintegrasi.
. Strategi ketiga Massa bangunan dibelah oleh atrium menggunakan atap plastik, disisi inilah, banyak tampias masuk, jadi bagaimana desain talang air menjadi penting untuk mengalirkan air supaya tidak membanjiri atrium. sehingga daerah atrium yang tadinya terkena tampias bisa menjadi vista kedua dimana ada atrium tinggi tempat display dan transisi ruang luar dalam menuju ruangan selanjutnya. .
Vista ketiga dibentuk dengan axis tegas dari meja – meja diskusi, coffee bar, dan sisi klimaks dimana otten meletakkan barista robot. Anyaman bambu diletakkan di daerah langit – langit, karena sifatnya yang ringan, dan bisa dilengkungkan, anyaman itu disandarkan naik dan turun menciptakan komposisi estetika.
Selama pandemi terjadi kami banyak menerima pekerjaan renovasi, ada bangunan lama yang ingin menjadi bangunan baru.Banyak tempat-tempat itu kosong dan mencari penghuni baru.Refleksi kami terhadap keadaan tersebut adalah bagaimana mendesain arsitektur yang menggunakan struktur lama dengan nilai artistik menjadi satu hal yang dicari – cari, mereka mencari jiwa yang baru. . Otten Coffee membuka dirinya untuk berbagai macam kemungkinan design. Kriteria dari mereka sederhana bahwa bangunannya harus unik, dan memanfaatkan struktur lama. Dialog kami dengan klien berlangsung berkali-kali. Mereka sempat berkata ” jangan kalah ya ritel ini nggak boleh kalah uniknya dengan ritel coffee yang ada di luar negeri kita harus membuktikan bahwa Indonesia tidak kalah bagus.” Kami menjawab pak bagaimana kalau kita memakai kekriyaan lokal dan mereka menyambutnya “why not ?” . Kekriyaan lokal menjadi benang merah, dan bentuk artistik yang fresh dengan repetisi lengkungan bata terbungkus nuasa semen ekspos dan pencahayaan natural ditambah desain tata letak dan cahaya yang artistik menjadi benang merah awal. Satu waktu itu, klien memutuskan bahwa di ruang Etalase terbelakang akan ditempatkan robot barista. Kami mengecek mendesain ulang lebar -tinggi meja, pencahayaan, dan komposisi sumbu yang membelah garis lurus antara kedatangan sampai titik klimaks sehingga bisa dinikmati pengunjung. Ruang etalase nuansa futuristik dengan latar belakang modul akrilik susu dengan lampu di belakangnya terdiri dari modul – modul detil per 30 cm, jadilah kami mendapatkan benang merah kedua. .
. Dialog klien dan arsitek itu seperti kerjasama koloni semut, kami menghubungkan antena2 untuk berkomunikasi dan menyamakan persepsi. Klien adalah sang ratu yang memiliki visi misi, sedangkan arsitek, kontraktor, dan disiplin yang lain ibaratnya para pekerja, prajuritnya. Satu dan lain hal kami bekerja sama menyambung visi dan persepsi dengan semangat kolaborasi, ya arsitektur itu kerja kolaborasi dan refleksi.

Stupa is a house like a Castle inspired by Stupa or tapered traditional masonry temple of Indonesian architecture. This form has been exercised in the Guha project and Istakagrha (meaning bricks house), marking the continuation of the experimentation process in the studio. Stupa also means stupa home, a space for meditation, forming a temple or sanctuary for the family.
The project is in the plot of land in Alam Sutera, Tangerang, a rural area of Jakarta that brings peculiarity to the surrounding existing generic neighborhood. The homeowner’s entry celebrates the lush landscape at the front because of the shade of the current Ketapang Kencana tree.
Architecturally The entrances also bring micro-climate from the solid – translucent canopy in the entrance as a promenade walk from the foyer to the living area. The house forms a castle of skylights in the hot, humid Alam Sutera area, forming an oasis outside. The idea is to have lights and air circulation with tiny gaps at the top of the skylights while providing thermal insulation to the house.
The house consists of 3 types of skylights. One is six primary tapered 3.0 x 3.0 m skylights. The second is the serviced 2.0 m x 3.5 m skylights that light the service area, the third is the smaller 0.5 m x 1.25 m skylight that illuminates the toilet area.
In this house, every room has natural lights. The white bricks are stacked at the front to accommodate privacy framing blue color door and view to the backyard. The living room exposed big glass openings towards the gardens by doing that. The living room is double height providing spacious space that allows air stacking effect to the skylights at the house’s core.
The toilet adjacent to the bedroom and master bedrooms views the gardens and lights from tapered skylights. This house reminded us of the traditional Javanese home.
Reconstruction of the concept started from Lawang Pintu, meaning vista door that greeted the visitor with open space and continued the passage to Pendopo, meaning the arrival building. The Pendopo is the most prominent structure in the house consisting living room. The attached back part is the serviced area and bedrooms area organized by the tapered skylights roof.
The clients are simple people, the discussion in the project combined the grey plastered cement as a basis craftmanship to surface the house. As simple as the house color, it shows the character of the project, the clients, and the approach of the architecture, which is a simple and understated beauty.

Home is a place to build memories. A place where I can introduce lots of things to kids. Most important aspect of home to me is light, light, and lights. The best feeling in the world is waking up from afternoon nap basked in golden sunset rays. I’m not much of a design/artsy person so interior wise, I’d left it to my wife. I’m easily satisfied in this sector. I’m more concerned on the quality and materials of the build. I will be happy if the house is uncluttered/tidy and the house is just running smoothly without any “tetek bengek” to deal with.

Sederhana is another building from the whole of Piyandeling complex. This building is a one-floored building, just like its name, which is more simplistic than Sumarah and Kujang.
The building is constructed with stone as a podium. Still using bamboo as its main materials, bamboo is used to construct its roofs. The method to make its roof is called Talahap which is a traditional bamboo construction made from layering it on top of each other. The bamboo would then be layered with a waterproof membrane and nipah.
Kujang is another building from the whole of Piyandeling complex. This building is a two-floored building with a large open hall that is used for workshops or meetings.
Upholding local vernacularity, Kujang is stretched out with its materials that consist of natural fiber or bamboo for its main structure and daun nipah as the coverage of its roof. The roof is shaped the familiar triangle as an expression of Indonesian vernacular architecture that creates a silhouette of a mountain.
The bamboos are transformed into balustrades with unique and aesthetic geometry. Not only does it appeal to the eyes, the geometry is also designed such that it will add the overall strength and rigidity of Kujang’s structure.
The programming of the building requires the surface of its building to contact the earth as minimally as possible. As a solution, Kujang is also designed with a floating structure underneath. This solution also acts as a response to the environment of the site that faces struggle in gathering clean water caused by water pipes that are not accommodating enough. With its floating structure, waters are ensured to follow directions to the land.
Piyandeling is a new project consisting of The Residence and Artisan Workshop The concept is elaborated from the previously Realrich Architecture Workshop (well known by RAW Architecture)’s “Guha” project. Piyandeling is located in a tranquil area of Mekarwangi Village, North Bandung.
Piyandeling adalah proyek baru yang terdiri dari residensi dan bengkel untuk berkreasi. Konsep ini dielaborasi dari proyek “Guha”. Piyandeling terletak di daerah yang tenang di Desa Mekarwangi, Bandung Utara.
The Residence consists of a three-storey house with a grid 3.0 x 3.0 m for 1 family consists of 2 kid bedrooms, 1 master bedroom, and shared bathrooms. The building envelope is openable which is constructed with recycled 300 x 600 mm plastic panels to cover and protect the inner bamboo structure. The plastic panel is recycled from 99 percent Sumarah Pavilion, that is why the residence is named Sumarah.
Daerah residensi, terdiri dari rumah tiga lantai dengan grid 3,0 x 3,0 m untuk 1 keluarga terdiri dari 2 kamar tidur anak, 1 kamar tidur utama, dan kamar mandi bersama. Selubung bangunan dapat dibuka yang dibangun dengan panel plastik 300 x 600 mm daur ulang untuk menutupi dan melindungi struktur bambu bagian dalam. Panel plastik tersebut didaur ulang dari 99 persen Paviliun Sumarah, itulah sebabnya tempat tinggal tersebut diberi nama Sumarah.
The envelope forms an 800 mm service corridor with double cross air ventilation and double wall insulations to the core living space of the building. This forms an adaptation of traditional and more industrial approaches mixing traditional joineries and glued joinery of bamboo. The technique is elaborated from Guha Bambu and Alfa Omega Project. which allows the experimentation of 3 storey of the bamboo structure by the diagonal bamboo structure of the floor plate construction.
Selubung tersebut membentuk koridor layanan 800 mm dengan ventilasi udara silang ganda dan insulasi dinding ganda ke ruang inti bangunan. Ini membentuk adaptasi dari pendekatan tradisional dan lebih industri yang mencampurkan sambungan tradisional dan sambungan bambu yang direkatkan. Teknik tersebut diuraikan dari Proyek Guha Bambu dan Alfa Omega. yang memungkinkan percobaan struktur bambu 3 lantai dengan struktur bambu diagonal pada konstruksi pelat lantai.
Construction of Piyandeling is designed as an exercise using 3 types of main material such as recycled plastic, a local type of sympodial bamboo, and local stone for the foundation. The composition started as an exploration on how bamboo craftsmanship integrated with modular rectangular space to create such integrated craft carving bamboo composition from the ceiling, floor, column, door handle, lock, and finishing details handcrafted in site creating art and craft composition in the whole integrated space.
Konstruksi Piyandeling dirancang sebagai latihan dengan menggunakan 3 jenis bahan utama yaitu plastik daur ulang, bambu simpodial jenis lokal, dan batu lokal untuk pondasi. Komposisi tersebut dimulai sebagai eksplorasi bagaimana pengerjaan bambu terintegrasi dengan ruang modular persegi panjang untuk menciptakan komposisi bambu ukir yang terintegrasi dari langit-langit, lantai, kolom, pegangan pintu, kunci, dan detail finishing buatan tangan di lokasi menciptakan komposisi seni dan kerajinan secara keseluruhan. ruang terintegrasi.
Piyandeling is an example of bricolage architecture. It is an understanding that to design and build something out of the land, the project needs to find the roots of Local Genius by understanding the adaptation of local craftsmanship and local material available on specific sites.
Piyandeling adalah salah satu contoh arsitektur bricolage. Dimana Bricolage merupakan pemahaman bahwa untuk merancang dan membangun sesuatu dari tanah, proyek perlu menemukan akar dari Local Genius dengan memahami adaptasi keahlian lokal dan materi lokal yang tersedia di lokasi tertentu.
Located on the outskirts of Tangerang, Karawaci, one of the cities next to Jakarta, Tresno is the design of a simple tropical house in Jakarta. It’s simultaneously designed by the Geomancy principle creating 9 squares of the grid which forbids and allows some functions in the zoning such as the area of the north is for master bedroom and south for the kid’s bedroom. The squares consist of the 3.6 m x 3.6 grid in 9 square boxes with cantilevered space to allow pool, garden, and connection from ground floor to 1st floor flows from service level on the ground floor to living level on 1st floor and at the end to more private level on the 2nd-floor plan. The orientation of the sunlight is studied so the exposure is minimum from the west side facade by having a solid wall and minimum opening. the ground floor and 1st-floor functions to open to the garden. The landscape of “The Pucuk Merah trees” functions as barrier sunlight, and creating a microclimate in the periphery of the site providing microclimate.
At the center of the house, there is a skylight design based on the elaboration of the Tumpang Sari technique which was done in Guha. Basically it is a way to provide air stacking effect to cool the inside atrium space. The atrium connects bedrooms, kitchen, living room. Tumpang Sari is a form of traditional Architecture in Java, that the house is an act of prayer towards life for positive contribution, no pretension, life learning. In this case, the learning curve of understanding the basic needs of grids, modules, and atrium functions are key aspects.
The design uses craftsmen who polished the concrete from the previous projects such as The Guild project before with module 600 mm width x 1200 mm, length to avoid cracking between joints. The steel welder who comes from Subang, West Java combines the lightness of perforated metal and crafted to create a layer of shadow and privacy. The perforated steel is positioned as wall and floor plate in the indoor mezzanine level and outdoor balcony. An idea is a functional approach plus expression raw, rough, and honest material in combination with steel, concrete, and wood plus landscape and lighting and at the end in a combination of tradition.
The new project, named Guha Bambu is on the east side. This building stands in the lot of 7.5 x 26 m size consisted of new 3 levels Bamboo structure, 2 levels of the basement. The technique to build the structure is elaborated from the experimental school of the alfa omega project. The technique separates the steel plane truss structure as a roof and bamboo structure to hold the 3-floor plate under the steel structure roof.
Guha is a combination of new and renovation projects based on previously “The Guild” located in Taman Villa Meruya. The Project consists of Omah Library, Dental Clinic, residence, and Realrich Sjarief’s studio named Guha Bambu, The studio is Realrich Architecture Workshop (well known by name of RAW Architecture). The renovation section is consisted of adding sequences for adding elaborated programs for Omah Library such as more storage for bookshelves, bookstore, and gallery. The circulation is designed to separate the public and private which is solved by separating the access at the entrance. The new project, named Guha Bambu is on the east side. This building stands in the lot of 7.5 x 26 m size consisted of new 3 levels Bamboo structure, 2 levels of the basement. The technique to build the structure is elaborated from the experimental school of the Alfa Omega project. The technique separates the steel plane truss structure as a roof and bamboo structure to hold the 3-floor plate under the steel structure roof.
Construction of Guha is elaborated into 9 materials, to sum up, craftmanship experimentation in Realrich Architecture Workshop such as steel, wood, glass, metal, gypsum, bamboo, plastic, stone, and concrete. The layout is flexible, and open while some of the rooms are opened by a minimum of 2 doors allowing further scenarios while the program can be changed. The idea is basically addressing the tropical climate to open north-south and close the facade on the west side. The Facade is basically basic material, concrete, vertical louver by steel and bamboo. The program it self challenge the typical housing in Indonesia to be mixed with more micro business programs such as education, even coffee shop in the future by maintaining the privacy and opening itself to the public. The construction is done by generations of craftsmen from west java which integrate some traditional fish mouth joint in bamboo construction and more modern construction methods such as steel and construction.
Realrich Architecture Workshop is awarded the first place in a competition for the National Gallery of Indonesia in Jakarta. Seeking to form a connection with the 2 heritage building, their proposal for a Gallery complex, entitled “Nature + Sky,” derives its form from the continuity from public and private spaces.
The heritage building, built during the Dutch-Indies government era, will be framed with a gallery with an expression of greeneries with museum underneath the landscape. The building frames the office tower as a background.
The lobby is located in the heritage building, making this building a hub for entrance and egress. A sky bridge connects the heritage building with the gallery building that frames it. The reception plaza is located at the western side of the Galeri Nasional Indonesia. An art plaza concept will be built along the east-west axis, and art stores will be located at the bridge where the axis the north-south and east-west met.
The project is divided into two components to demarcate public and private programming. First, In the lower level, gallery and retail space comprised of a permanent gallery, temporary gallery, art shops, a cafe, and meeting room are housed within a courtyard with a bridge to connect the heritage building and the new extension. Additional public interaction is encouraged through the inclusion of areas for hosting live workshops. Second, Above these functions, the private programming – consisting of operational office, library, and rooftop garden terraces is designed. The installation of these serves as an abstract nod to the region’s vernacular style of vertical wooden cladding.
In general, the building masses of the Galeri Nasional Indonesia complex respond to two main axes. The Monas axis and the Galeri Nasional heritage building which was connected to the Gambir train station. The Monas axis is realized through the construction of an underground tunnel. The front and rear side of the Galeri Nasional complex hold interconnected open plazas as a response to the Monas area (at the front) and the Ciliwung River (at the rear). The Galeri Nasional Indonesia depicts the simplicity of Indonesian architecture in harmony with nature where earth and sky merge.
Located in The Green Precinct, Bumi Serpong Damai, Tangerang, Dancer House (well known by Kampono House) sited on the corner of the complex facing west and south. Its total area is 319 sqm, and having land shaped round. The design use this existing situation to emphasize the land potential of scenery and continuous attributes by juxtapositioning axial line and curvature lines, both in the interior and exterior part. The concept is elaborated from the previous Realrich Architecture Workshop’s project such as the Wood Box project, the project is a new way of how intuition, iterations, and functions shape its form.
From outside, the house shows its extroverted while from inside, neatly put dwelling program kept family activities intact and still private. Land orientation influences the design process as an opportunity to maximize lighting reception and vistas. Double height window standing still an upfront side that facing Southwest, which shaded by 2 existing Albizia Chinensis trees. The design process changes in a flow/continuous manner into final shape following its ground and scenery, as to resemble a dancing house, which was inspired by Mrs. Adhisty’s profession as a dancer.
Entering the house, an open plan living room welcomed inhabitants and visitors. The ground floor ceiling is extended to maximize its spaciousness by a height of 4 meters. On top of the living room, the airflow mechanism consists of air stacking effect, -a lightwell, with a size of 180×180 cm and periphery opening as cross air circulation. The swimming pool is located on the second floor to guard user’s privacy, this position is achieved by raising the level of ground for about 2 m above, with land cut-and-fill method. Its positioned below curvature roof and having outmost scenery of the entire neighborhood.
The roof garden is placed at the rooftop to insulate the building from heat. This space also serves as a relaxing place for an immediate garden party. Below on the first floor, there is 3 bedroom beside central stair. Two-bedroom are designed in 18 sqm for children, adjoining to terrace from curvature component. The master bedroom has a bigger area of 30 sqm, with a walk-through closet for clothes and powder area, adjoining master study, and facing directly to the swimming pool.
The dance floor is placed on the same floor between the master and kid’s rooms. This space also works as a second living room for the family. The service floor and the wet kitchen are located in the semi-basement floor, along with utilities as Genset and wáter pump.
The material used in the house consisted of local cream Tulungagung marble, solid Merbau wood, and steel pipe for handrailing. For handrailing, it is designed vertically placed each in 80 mm distance, put horizontally for kid’s safety. It used local ceramic for service floor and coated bare concrete for outdoor finishes.
Dancer House is one example of a project which exercises the modification of form and program with open plan circulation, in the tropical climate of Bumi Serpong Damai Tangerang, Indonesia.
Alpha Omega school is an educational building with the spirit of locality. Located on Tangerang city, it sat on 11700 sqm area with the prior condition of the swamp and paddy field. The design responded to this unstable soil condition by raising structure to 2.1 m high above the ground. The site itself was chosen as part of the design scheme, —corresponding to its natural surroundings, in order to give children a sense of closeness to nature, thus invoking outdoor-learning experience. (The building integrates 4 modular buildings, with an efficient access point in one central courtyard, due to limitation of local land zoning of what can be built and what can not be built.)
The solution to answer the brief of the project is to create an optimum collaboration, or bridge relationship in the economic and creative process of construction in two important levels of masonry steel and bamboo construction which can enrich the economic impact of the surrounding. Steel structure, not only for its ability to hold structural load effectively but is also chosen for its construction speed and vigorous durability. The whole building based on this framework, from foundation to roof component. Steel in its variation from thickness to treatments, opening chances in versatile details of the design. While bamboo, on the other hand, is a flexible matter that requires little maintenance in long-range which always available in that area. This availability also related to brick and concretes in that area. The structure is combined with bamboo for the roof to create a parabolic shape which enhances the character of Nipah which can be tilted or bent while keeping the cost constraint on budget. The brick is stacked in solid void pattern to allow cross air circulation in the facade. Meanwhile the polished bare concrete is used as floor finishes as its durability for a daily school activity.
Another target of the project is to create a collaborative bonding within people and its buildings. Initiating a healthy social cycle with local involvement has proven to unlocked the collective creative process of the construction. This achieved by hiring diverse local craftsmen, rather than employing prime developers. This project completed by local stone masonry, to steel welder from the Salembaran area, and bamboo craftsmen from the Sumedang area. Each has its originality, without losing its ubiquitous understanding of school design.
The local craftsmanship is the answer of 3 problem, which is: 1. Optimum resource, 2. Time constraint, 3. Manpower. The material resources can be found within 5 km from the site to accelerate development while reducing the carbon footprint at the same time.
In 4 months range, the craftsman is categorized into two types:
(1) Light structure, which is concentrated on the roof. Constructed by a triangular light steel frame per 600 mm, man-powered by 40 Sumedang craftsman. Its low-cost material had reduced 30 % initial budget, using bamboo and Nipah entirely.
(2) The heavy structure is built for modular classrooms by Salembaran craftsman constructing masonry and steel framework. By the first 2 months, light structure craftsmen had constructed dock, followed by roof and ceiling details. In followed 4 months they joined in heavy structure part. The school is built in 4 months’ time.
The school designed as a passive cooling building, which relied heavily on natural cross air ventilation in its construction. The open-high ceiling designed as an airing pathway, followed by porous solid-void brick on each side of the classroom’s wall. This way, interior airflow is circulated optimally without the necessity to use the air conditioner. For heat problem, the structure on top of the corridor is cantilevered by 2000 mm to create natural sunshade while providing protection from heavy rainfall. Nipah’s roof, brick’s solid void facade, bamboo’s ceiling, and concrete’s floor finishes provide low thermal conductivity materials that allow the building to cool down in an average whole year, interior temperature to 27-celsius degree. it the opening in the building designed for 100 percent daylight until afternoon, and 100 percent LED in the night time.
Located at the corner of the Street at Villa Meruya residential precinct, The guild shows its introvert side with the solid and high border wall, the solid fence without a gap to peek. As if to withdraw from the noisy Jakarta city and build its own sanctuary, the guild is solid from the outside but open on the inside. The Building consists of one residence, living room, studio a place to work for Realrich Architecture Workshop, Omah Library, one open courtyard, and a kitchen. The entrance is introduced by concrete, steel, glass, and polycarbonate sheet. The access from public and private is separated by an open-air corridor. The access to the House and the Studio are separated by 2 x 2 m foyer.
The bedroom is located on the 1st floor while the other program is located on the ground floor. The circulation is interlocked to give easy access for the owner to access the studio below. Living room and also the dining room with a total area of 35 sqm located on the ground floor, while the more private family rooms are located on the first floor and limited by the void of stairs to separate family area and the studio.
Hot west-east tropical sunlight is blocked by placing a solid wall and bathroom while the facade is open to the north-south orientation. Several pyramids shaped form is also introduced to allow sunlight coming to the middle of the building and allowing fresh air circulation through the small gaps in between glass and concrete. The building system uses an automatic watering system that applies zero greywater runoff and zero stormwater runoff. It means the whole water is collected to the retention basin with 8 m3 capacity and 2.75 x 3 m of catchment basin with 1,5 m of depth that also contributes the catchment to the neighbor.
The studio consists of 6 x 6 m square shapes, a small void. The small void has a tapered skylight made of concrete with several small gaps to provide light and air circulation. The library named Omah which is open at the weekend has a size of 3,4 x 12,3 m. It is sunken at perimeter area, half below the height of 0:00 meters considering public access and the needs that require a condition to keep books from the sun and constant temperature with the minimum possible to use the air conditioner. At the heart of the house is a courtyard with a fish pond with a background of the 3.5 m radius circle window with 3.50 m looking through the family room. The Guild is one example of a project which exercises the modification of form and program with interlocked circulation in the tropical climate of Jakarta, Indonesia.
Located in Puri Indah, West Jakarta region, the tropical open house creates intimate space from entrance through void in the garden, in living room, library, and the roof top garden.
“I want a house. A house to retreat, to relax with my family,” explains homeowner Mr. Wirawan to Realrich Sjarief. Situated in the increasingly crowded West Jakarta area, the 500 sqm house occupies a 450 sqm plot of land. Reflected by the owner’s name, Wirawan House forest wood, Size-wise it is inconspicuous, but its exposed brassed wood facade gives it a humble look. The concept is elaborated from Bare Minimalist, Akanaka, and Istakagrha to provide tropical open houses.
The architecture of Tropical Open House separated the service on the ground floor, lifted the building floats with living room, and master bedroom on the first floor and bedroom for three children on the second floor. The composition is designed by designing multiple small landscapes based on the view from each intimate space, this way the heat is reduced by facing the opening to the north-south side while opening the skylight and the window to let air and light in. The house has one receiving area then no more separation wall on the first floor which is the living room. In the living room, the kitchen also takes some importance its final layout is the result of a few adjustments based on the owner’s domestic habits. The only enclosed space in the second level is Wirawan’s study, which doubles as a library and his space to remember memory for his family. A simple foyer and a light well integrated with stair, and artwork is placed after the receiving area. The second story houses private spaces. At the end of the corridor is 2 bedrooms of his daughter’s equipped with a suite bathroom and a walk-in closet. An outdoor feel showering area is attached to the bathroom, while the surface connecting its indoor and outdoor area is made of clear glass. The material used in this building is chosen based on the best craftsmanship available in Jakarta.
5 types of local Wood was picked based on each unique character. First is, dried pine wood 180 mm x 30 mm x 3000 mm, for the facade, and 85 mm x 10 mm x 3000 mm for the ceiling. Pinewood was chosen because of the durability and lightness. Second, reused Ironwood which is the most durable material used for the Phinisi boat, combined with Bengkirai wood which is more economical for the less walkable space is used for indoor-outdoor decking because of the texture, durability, and economic. Teakwood is used for main area bedroom, library, and foyer area, and Merbau wood 300mm x 480 mm x 2800 mm combined in the single door is used for door because of its tolerance on expansion, the most available material in Jakarta.
An additional bedroom, bathroom, and a multi-function room linked by a corridor leading to an open space beside the void leading to the stairwell and staircase, a pretty bow to knot the horizontal and vertical circulations together. The project installed stormwater harvesting and reuses it in water landscaping. While stormwater harvesting is increasingly common in some countries, it is still a rare, exceptional facility in Indonesia, one that this project was determined to have in this home. The attention of the play of light and shadow, created through a combination of materials and artificial and natural light is fundamental to the design of the house and evokes the quietude of such a retreat house which stated by its architecture.
Located in Alam Sutera, Tangerang, as it completed in 2016, Puncak Keemasan Group Office occupies 2.450 sqm of built area. The building is intended as an office for several companies, which is a noticeable challenge in programming schemes. As part of a given solution, the design proposes a permeable transition to create unifying ambiance with the structural parabolic shape made by plywood while maintaining separation inside each chamber. The material used as the main language is plywood that covered almost all interior offices. The result is a jungle-like hall that connects every room with a tree bookshelf and library as its main hub.
The primary concern of the design is to restrain any unnecessary cost while maintaining a sense of playfulness and creativity. The scheme is elaborated from Omah Library Summer pavilion modular concept.
Form of design was expressed in two main sequences. The first sequence is to convey the flow by continuous circle form of tree structured bookshelves along the path of the office. The Second sequence is the type of flow expressed through plywood ceiling placement, which creating sense of wave, thus also resulted in dynamic interior lighting. Another use of plywood is manifested in giant curvature bookshelf that also works as room partition. This bookshelf formed double curvature for a reason. The curve reversed each other vertically, like a section of double helix. This way, it has stable load point in the middle of double arch as self-supporting barrier.
The design also aims for material efficiency. By using 600 x 600 waffle module of bare plywood to cover the ceiling, gave results to its cost efficiency up to 50% to compare with a normal cost. Not only as a transitional element, but plywood also became the main form for its ceiling structure. Giant waffle is also functioned for mantling cables and pipes by the least usage of material.
The entire interior element is consistent with the same porous detail; from square module bookshelf to various high for the ceiling, while some part of supporting areas is using modular rectangle layout form. The detail is enhanced by low hanging Edison lamp along with the office, and synthetic grass carpet to heighten the jungle mood.
Sumarah is inspired by an Indonesian form of meditation centered on the philosophy of life. Sumarah is defined as a “total surrender,” allowing the partial ego to give way to the universal self.The practice is based on developing sensitivity and acceptance through deep relaxation of body, feelings and mind. Its aim is to create inside ourself the inner space and the silence necessary for the true self to manifest and to speak to us said the architects. Realrich Sjarief explained that a total surrender to life allows one to see the real beauty in the world. They added that this cycle between mind and soul is a continuous loop, which was the inspiration behind their plan for the structure.
Created with polycarbonate, the project is connected with steel elbow and screw bolt. By creating space within space, the architects have, in essence, created life within life by filling each box with plants or fish. Looking at the elevation of the structure resonates with the Indonesian mountains that possess sacred meanings of human achievement. Moreover, the box-like composition was influenced by the stacking system in Indonesian temples. Ancient temples, like Borobudur and Prambanan, were formed by stacking many blocks of stone. The best part of the structure is translucency and transparency. people can see through the boxes and into other forms of its life systems.
Located in Taman Meruya Ilir, West Jakarta region, Istakagrha meaning brick house, Situated in the increasingly crowded West Jakarta area, the 150 sqm house occupies a 150 sqm plot of land, 10m x 15m. Istakagrha is reflected by its name, brick House, it is a small and compact house with a orange painted color on the light weight brick, black colour , and rough concrete texture finishes.The expression creates humble and distinctive look.
“We have a dream to have a house which like a villa in Bali. A house more than a functional but a place to live and grow with feel of nature, we really love staying in tranquil house” explains homeowner Mr. Ferdian Septiono and Ms. Joice Verawati to Realrich Sjarief. The couple are graphic designer who are willing to have a compact Ecological house which is resortlike.
The architecture of Istakagrha separated inside and outside with the landscape of a barrier wall made by light weight brick. The combination is stacked with pattern of solid void, which provide sense of privacy and security, meanwhile allowing sunlight and air circulation to flow inside the living room. The Ecological Approach of this house elaborated from Realrich Architecture Workshop’s project such as Bare Minimalist project and the privacy design elaborated by Bris Soleil (sun breaker) elaborated from akanaka.
The house faces east side allowing morning sunlight come to the space at 9 am. The stair is placed at the west side, the west side is walled with brick to provide thermal insulation. The air ventilator is placed at the west side of the house above the stair from ground to 1st floor providing fresh air circulation through air stacking effect. The house has one open air receiving area as anteroom then no more separation wall between living, dining, and cooking which In the living room, the kitchen also takes some importance its final layout is the result of few adjustments based on the owner’s domestic habits. The only enclosed space in the second storey is guest room, which doubles as a working space and guest bed room. A simple foyer and a light well integrated with stair, and art work is placed after the receiving area at the west side of the building. The second story houses private spaces. At the end of the corridor is 1 bedroom with shared bathroom and a walk-in closet. An simple and functional feel showering area is attached to the bathroom. The material used in this building is choosed based on the best craftmenship available in Jakarta, concrete structure is used because of the cost efficiency, engineered wood is used because of the look and lightness, metal frame for facade and sunshading are used because of durability.
3 types of brick was used based on each character. First, is light weight brick, 200 x 600 x 100 mm, for the facade. Light weight brick was chosed because of the lightness, precision and can be easily molded and constructed as facade/ Second, orange brick which is most common material used in Jakarta, The third one is the ceramic brick 50 mm x 150 mm x 10 mm which is used for covering the stair wall as insulation and interior surface. An additional bedroom, bathroom and a stair way to the attic on the 1st floor is linked by a corridor leading to an open space beside the void leading to the stairwell and stair case through compact space. Istakagrha showed an example of small house in Jakarta with small plot of land with sustainable design approach and keeping privacy from out side to inside through simple form which is stacking brick.
