Here is our space where I put all of the handwork, of RAW Architecture studio in. I curate the information in order so that it’s easy to understand, that the studio try to experiment to bring innovation and more understanding on the projects.
I put the credit for the team work noting that several beautiful people who are critical and creative craftsmen, designers, supervisor, and clients who has contributed to the body of work. My grand father and father started the builder’s ecosystem before, and I extended it, and focused on architecture.
Please have a look at the name and studio contributors below, I appreciate the effort collaboratively. I am updating this story quite often, so please have a visit.
I established Realrich Architecture Workshop wellknown by the name of RAW Architecture in 2011. We are active on designing specific approach building which has interest on locality and craftmanship to define architecture which is simple, humble, no pretention and has quality of transcendence.
Our projects strive for uniqueness and humble character of local material. The vision of the studio is about making architecture that is basic, we call it raw in it’s look, process to make artisanal quality. It’s the belief that experimentation of design methods which developed wholeheartly will create such a timeless, surreal, and mastering quality in its simplest form, simplest approach.
We re-established the long history of craftsmanship in my builder’s family that has been lasted for 3 generations, 60 years of practice since Indonesia Independence. Looking back at that time the practice has no name. The relationship between the supervisors and labors was intimate and personal in order to service ecosystem. It’s a phase that there is no-name, and more common sense and huge trust by clients and collaborators. It’s the world of colonials and post colonials culture.
The practice is well known on trust, quality, and its authentic and also basic design innovation in the mastery of building construction in our way. Our approach revived the idea of harmonic relationship between the craftsman, designer, people, and buildings as a whole. The works has become the manifestation of this belief. Please have a look, and enjoy the process described below.

Some of the people who has worked with me. The have been bringing beautiful memories. I feel grateful of their presence. And, they are advancing to improve architecture ecosystem in their life. Every life intersects between each other. I always remember the first moment, when we started the studio in garage. I spent most of my daily life there, it’s a state of being humble, and always stays on progress. I experimented in garage studio, and change some of the details, place, shapes, ambiance with the craftsmen almost even days, weeks. It shows the positive energy of gradual improvement.
I would like to say Thank you for all of the effrt, for all of the past serendipity, positive mindset, and I pray for the best of their progress.
