Le Kawan Home / W+M Design Studio
Textual content description supplied by the architects. After we visited the positioning, we have been mesmerized by the forest environment and a good looking conventional Javanese home referred to as ‘Joglo’ that the household used to dwell in often. That home was now not enough to accommodate the consumer’s wants, in order that they wanted to construct different buildings as an additional dwelling house. As the standard home is preserved, the brand new buildings are designed to harmonize with the standard home – with a contemporary twist.
The Joglo has robust architectural language, which is described as the mix of rhythmic slim wood columns that outline open dwelling house and large stone partitions for the non-public rooms. The present supplies, corresponding to wooden, sandstone, terrazzo, and coloured cement tiles, turn into our base palette to design the brand new buildings. This language turns into the place to begin when designing the brand new ones, with some twists so as to add richness to the complicated.
The brand new buildings encompass Pavilion, Bungalow, and Workers Quarter. The Pavilion is connected to the Joglo and capabilities as an indoor dwelling extension of it. In distinction, the Bungalow is separated away from the others to make it extra non-public for friends. The Bungalow is designed as an unbiased dwelling house, making it able to be rented for exterior friends.
Because the extension of Joglo, the Pavilion façade is designed in continuation of the horizontal proportion and rhythmical columns of the Joglo, the terrace is sticking in entrance, mimicking the sense of open house within the Joglo, while it’s cantilevered floating above the backyard to make it look extra up to date.
The Bungalow is positioned on the sting of this sloped panorama to get essentially the most non-public and exquisite surroundings. This constructing was designed sunken into the bottom to offer non non-obstructed view from the Pavilion behind it. It’s topped with a roof backyard, united with the encompassing backyard, and turns into the extension of the panorama.
The toilet emphasizes present supplies from Joglo. Vibrant-colored cement tiles are displayed on the wall muted terrazzo on the ground, and wood louvers are referred to as ‘memento’ for the home windows that present each air circulation and privateness.
