F+W House

This 3 storey project is located in an opulent residential area in North Jakarta, Indonesia. The site itself is located in cul-de-sac which is a dead-end road with a unique shaped site. The building mass that occurs is consisted of 4 different axis which is the outcome of site’s reconstruction efforts that is done by Don Pieto and Henny Suwardi of DP + HS Architects.

With a total of 8 people living in this house, the space program needed is quite dense if compared with the total area available. Thus, to optimize the use of space, the mass is halved, and the rooms are placed on both sides. The middle area is transformed to a horizontal and vertical circulation corridor; that way, the area on both sides can be maximized as rooms. The central corridor is paired with a long void that literally splits the mass of the building. Then, a glass roof is placed on top of it as a skylight which serves to draw the light up to the ground floor. This is done to channel the light throughout the room from morning to late afternoon. Air outlets are placed below the glass roof to draw the warm air out of the building and trigger the cross-ventilation. An arising consequence from using a long void, which serves as the light source of this building, is that every short bridge which connects the two masses has to use laminated glass material consistently to allow the light entering this building to reach the ground floor.

Modern contemporary design is translated in the personal spaces. Each room is designed differently with a lot of variations in the pattern application and also in the use of materials, to meet the house owner’s character. Different room experience is presented along the circulation corridor. The long void area integrates the relationship between the storeys giving a spacious feeling despite the dense space program.

Living-Dining-Pantry which is the main family gathering area is placed side by side with the long void in one side and the swimming pool on the other side. The ceiling’s feature in that space is designed to resemble pool ripple.

At the rooftop area, a small shelter covered with glass is built, with the view towards the sea a few kilometers to the north. This shelter is built to accommodate gathering events in the afternoon or evening and for special occasions such as New Year's Eve.

B+M House

This residential project is the outcome of tropical design approach in modern residential that is inhabited by an introvert owner. Don Pieto and Henny Suwardi of DP+HS Architects emphazise  layering and sheltering concept at the facade of the building. The layering is done by creating a secondary skin in form of steel louvre which serves to reduce the direct light entering the building, as well as a security factor which is obstructing the view and access of people from the street to the building. Another layering is done by creating a double wall, and the use of natural stone material serves to hold the heat wave absorbed by the wall.

Wide eaves are created to reduce the amount of direct light that enters the building, as well as creating a space for terrace and balcony that can be used as a gathering area. A big pool is built at the back of the house with a high void which directly adjoins the living room; this area serves to help lower the room temperature.

Mezzanine concept is presented in the living room to merge the spatial relationship and activities between the floors. The high ceiling aims to make the room temperature cooler. The materials that are used on the exterior of this building are also used in the interior of the building, particularly the use of natural stone.
