Nestled on an lot in Jakarta the expansive home consists of 19 bedrooms spread across two spacious levels with additional living areas nestled on the ground floor. A central courtyard and light tunnel form the axis around which these individual rooms are placed as a floor of natural light and green freshness brightens the interior.
Increasing the living space of the original cottage structure that was set back from the street Nick Deaver Architect designed a new addition that creates a smart indoor-outdoor interplay with a series of exterior terraces.
A sculptural wooden staircase links the two levels of the loft and a functional blend of artificial illumination and natural light give the home a merry vibe. The smart use of textures and bold colors drives away any sense of boredom even as the stunning terrace and rooftop garden complete an inimitable interior that seems to have a style of its own!
Connected with the deck living area barbecue zone and the yard adults in the house can keep an eye on the little ones spending their time here from pretty much everywhere! Add to it the fact that the room is largely devoid of permanent fixtures and rigid features and it can be easily turned into an additional family room home office or even a guest space a few years down the line.
This fabulous fusion of different spaces is what gives the home its unique form and distinctive style even while clearly defining each area. A seamless blend of locally sourced wood with concrete and steels ensures that there is ample textural contrast within the home and large windows and glass doors bring in plenty of natural freshness.
