Located in a residential area at Jakarta, the house unfolds a single dwelling consisted of multiple massing designed with a tropical modernism approach in mind. As the tenant steps into the house, the entrance offers a micro-climatic luxuriant experience through curtains of vines, vibrant plants, and the sound of falling water. A cantilever constructed above the pathway acts as solar and rain shading.

The two distinct blocks are connected with a large sharing space where the pool and the central courtyard are found. A simple passive cooling mechanism allows this area to facilitate cross-ventilation, daylight systems, and natural air conditioning. Throughout the open spaces, tropical plantations are always present as a natural contrast to the marble cladding. The pool leads to different functional areas in the house such as the kitchen, the living room, the toilet, and the bedrooms.
