House in Kranggan
Jakarta, Indonesia
The 'result of a continuous negotiation of the vernacular with modernity', the basic form of the house in Kranggan adapts the typology of the traditional Indonesian dwelling. Like traditional houses, it is cooled by a cross-ventilation grill placed beneath its pitched roof. Its layout is defined by the desire to blur interior and exterior: all the living spaces have an expansive relation to the garden. Construction and materials are conventional, reflecting the limited budget. The structure is of concrete cast in situ. Exterior and interior walls are of masonry with plaster finishes.
