House 51
Jakarta Timur, Indonesia
This house on a site of only 38 m2 in a crowded neighbourhood includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry space on the first floor. On the ground floor there is a dining room, a small bathroom, a small open terrace, storage drawer stairs and a carport. Space-saving features include the use of glass instead of brick for the separating walls of the bathroom (1.2 cm. instead of 15 cm.) and a cantilevered pantry table so the gap can be used as carport space. A skylight is used to bring in natural light and a small reflecting pool in the wooden deck helps cool the airflow in the house.
