The Distinct Duo
Interview by Anton Adianto | Photo by Sonny and Sons Doc.
Teaming up two architects, each of who has a signature style, on a single project is no easy task. The pairing will depend on chemistry. However, the competence of the father/son duo of Sonny Njonoriswondo and Aditya K. Njonoriswondo is proof that such collaborations can produce distinct –and exquisite– results. Sonny’s and Aditya’s works are found in abundance throughout Malang and Surabaya, East Java; in Jakarta and as far as Bali. Their projects are all compelling variations on the norms of architecture, despite an omnipresent contrast of maximalist and minimalist elements–something that the pair attributes to a commitment to design aesthetics above all.
