Green House

Rumah Hijau or Green House

is a concept of a modern house that interact fully with the surrounding environment and derived from ‘green concept understanding’ to optimize the design approaches with major concern from two aspects which are electricity management with optimum natural light & cross ventilations and water management using bio swale system on the landscape and utilize the rain water for external landscape watering and re-filtered to be used for service purposes.

Sited in West part of Jakarta originating the tropical climate with high humidity percentage and heavy rain season that occurs repeatedly, it takes into a consideration of all design aspects. Entering house from East side with few steps lead to double volume guest & living room with an elongated view toward reflective pool and courtyard, on the South block where the staircase to second storey there is an internal courtyard beside the guest bedroom to create a light court in between yet it functioned as an air space to all rooms. All the services area are pushed behind on West block where it has less opening and act as the service yard.

On second storey all bedrooms are orientated toward North & South side in the center space there is a small living room on the second storey as a gathering space for family members and all bathrooms at this level are arranged stacked above the bathrooms below.

Is a concept of stacked house/villa approached in an urban site at Jalan Cigadung, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

The framed view toward the city also can be enjoyed at the master bedroom also from the outdoor deck as the leisure part of the house that can be optimized as a barbeque deck, outdoor lounge and so forth.
