“This dwelling for a retired couple is located in one of the emerging gated communities in Jakarta – Indonesia. The brief mainly called for spacious open plan living and entertaining spaces that can facilitate good interactions in the occasion of family visits and hosting their gathering party. 3 main spaces in the house: the social, the intimate, and the services are organized and expressed with a series of rectilinear boxes that interlock and stack on top of one another, forming the overall massing composition. While the cantilevered massing and the narrow openings along the western facade intend to minimize western sun, the larger opening as the light well aims to allow indirect natural lighting to the living area below.”
