Architecture Design of The E House

Description About The Project

The E House designed by Esperta Architecture – Interior located in Jakarta, Indonesia with the ideal of friendly with environment. The house divided into 3 levels. The first level is service & office area, the second one is as semi private area, which has kitchen, dining area, and living room. Then, the third one is as private area for bedroom and leisure activities.

The architect did a sun study for this location because it’s facing West. Then, the result from the studies stated that it still be able to receive morning sunlight. By giving openings at the sides of this building. In consideration of applying an air cross ventilation into this building, architect provides openings at each side and level. Also, a lifted skylight installed at the top of stairs. So it can enhance the air circulation at the back side of the house.

Floated mass block is the eccentric part of this house with 6m cantilever. To support its floating idea as the highlight, architect made the second floor full of glass to make it feel lighter than the floated mass. Also, the mass block made with concrete panels and highlighted it with light along the front box. The other eccentric part of this building is its dynamic shadow throughout the year. Based on their sun study which was mentioned earlier, architect made use of the sun’s movement by getting a lot of east sunlight and shadow at west side. The user can enjoy sunlight and sunshade throughout the year.

The idea to elevate some parts of the building was inspired by the user’s childhood memory. He loved the experience of living in an elevated level, because he got a better view and nice air.

Then, architect put this idea into their design by making the third floor mass which has the user’s master bedroom floated. That block mass will also block and make a sun shade for second floor living room of The E House. So it won’t be too hot at afternoon and evening.
