The concept of this renovation project is mainly to harmonize light and air flow for every single space within the building. The house is situated in a very dense and old residential area in Bandung. It has none existing space for greenery. The worst part is, it is lack of natural lighting into its primary living space for the sake of enlarging the indoors.
After the renovation, visual and natural light extension upon the living area are created. It is done by transforming the guest area into an informal and open space on the front. The informal space also integrate a tiny garden and a garage to accommodate present needs for a daily commute.
Throughout the whole building, white and 2 different shades of brown are chosen to simplify the look of the interior. It impacts the visual, creating a much wider feeling into the enclosed space and very subtle feeling for the eye. The light brown ceramic provide a rich surface on the floor as well as balancing cold and warm feeling through out the architecture.
The built-in furniture forms a part of the space and create a neutral and seamless feeling to the walls, also it accommodate the functional and minimalist aesthetic towards its form.
With playfully creating solid-void and white colored walls on the exterior, it gives a powerful presence upon its surrounding. Glass blocks are chosen on the front facing wall as a substitution for glass, as it has transparent feeling yet creating private perception towards the enclosed space.
Overall, the renovation brings back balance for the user to do indoor and outdoor activities. Providing a healthier and minimalist lifestyle.
