Humane, Natural and Proportionate

It’s no secret that boarding houses in Indonesia have often been designed recklessly without heed to aesthetic values. A large number have been built only to maximize profit by adding rooms without considering the habitable compositions and scales. Surabaya is now home to a bioclimatic and biophilic boarding house that has been magnificently designed by Andyrahman Architect.

A house is a home when the comfort of its occupants is a priority. That philosophy is evident in this heritage home, which dates back more than 80 years, and has undergone conservation that has led to minor changes, none of which have made the house any less unique or appealing. The residence, located in the city centre of Malang, East Java, has been redesigned by Hidajat Endramukti with some brilliant touches and without too much alteration of its original physical condition.

Pangkal Pinang on Bangka Island is referred to as “Pin Kong” in some local Chinese dialects. The phrase is a portmanteau of “Pinang” and “kong”, which is Chinese for harbour. The city, which is the capital of Bangka-Belitung province, grew rapidly during the days of a lead mining rush in Kampung Air Mesu. The town boasts a long history that includes the saga of the Lay family, which emigrated from mainland China. One building that bears witness to the family’s storied history is the House of Lay.

A house designed by Studio Dezign, located in North Jakarta, garners attention with a large skylight positioned strategically and majestically in its main hall, letting light flood the vicinity. It exudes a grandiose ambiance that mimics boutique hotels for the elites.
