Closed facade design has become the main technique for ensuring privacy and security of housing. The enclosing structure is a wooden grate. Due to this technique, the architects managed to hide the house from the view from the outside, but at the same time leave it open to daylight. If desired, the design can be opened. Behind it is panoramic glazing and a spacious terrace. These elements have already become traditional in the design of private houses.


In an urban setting, proximity to nature is of particular value. In this regard, one of the priorities when creating a private home project was to make it as environmentally friendly as possible. In the decoration of the facade and interior used a variety of natural materials – wood, stone, metal.

Feature of the presented house was the presence of winter gardens. The urban environment of Jakarta consists of concrete, brick, asphalt, and there is almost no beautiful wildlife in residential areas.
