As Jakarta is one of the most populous city in the world, the architect think to design a comfort house in small area with plenty of required room and limited budget. In 6 m x 15 m land area, the architect tries to make the house gets a lot of sunshine and good air sirculation, with suitable space and budget. the architect create Split-Grow House concept wich means a split house that can be grown or build more someday depends on client’s budget to build the house. The split concept is used to manipulate the face of the house.
Split concept makes each floor is counted as half floor, start from first mezzanine to fifth mezzanine. Each floor will be built adjust to client’s budget. From the first mezzanine to the last mezzanine are conected by one big void which is becoming the main source for natural light and air, main area for interaction and also has stairs as main access of the house. the architect also makes 1 m width corridor alongside the house from front to back to be light and air alternative source, because the upper void has louvre glass. The architect also placed many biopore as absorption to avoid flood because the ground level lower than the street.
There is kitchen intergrated with dining room in first mezzanine floor. the dining table made with folded style so it can be opened wide if needed. The architect also uses bottom glass under second mezzanine facade so people in first mezzanine can see if there any people coming to the house. For the front area, the architect makes the upper half of the house overstek for 2,5 m so it can cover the carport and front terrace as an outdoor area for guest.
