Text description provided by the architects.
Luxurious house assignment located on Makassar City, eastern region of Indonesia. Incorporating plenty of needs by the client on such a limited space and while trying not to overdoing the space. Another key for the design was how to infuse the house with as much as possible natural light and fresh air.
The hot city climate that may reach 40 degree centigrade really imposed a challenge for such a building with many interior elements. We created some so called “air inlet & outlet” spaces to allow fresh air coming into the house and out to bring down the interior temperature. It resulted well and managed to reduce the use of air conditioner.
Same case with natural lighting. Air inlet & outlet spaces formed as balconies managed to infuse the interior space with plenty of natural light during the day.
Another challenge of the house really was about all the details to tie so many elements into well thought design feature. All and all, final result is a house with such an elegant and modern look especially with all lighting turned ON..
