STRATEGIC OPENNESS | Jakarta, INA
In Pantai Indah Kapuk neighborhood, land lots are divided in a narrow fashion that houses with typical conventional yard have difficult access to natural ventilation, a separation of living space and garden.
We offer a new type of urban typology – strategically placing volumes and carving voids in the dedicated lot. This allows living spaces to integrate with intimate inner courtyards and terraces. Cross ventilation in this humid condition is encouraged simply with openings onto 2 parallel sides. The house has pleasant access to natural lights, allowing a comfortable degree of illumination almost without any active interior lighting during the day.
