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.
