House in the south of Jakarta by TWS & Partners

This unusual residence is located in Jakarta, Indonesia and it was designed and built by TWS & Partners with principal in charge Tonny W Suriadjaja and structural engineers Purwa. The house was completed in 2010. It sits on a 300 sqm area. The concept behind this construction was to try something different from the usual lines, to try to create a different perception. As a result, the Distort House was born.

Situated in an area where tropical village forest is still a big part of the surroundings and where a public park is located in the front of the site itself, the house benefits from beautiful views and plenty of natural surroundings. The green area in the front of the house is a transitional space between the park and the house itself.

The private areas of the house are located n the upper level. This way there’s plenty of fresh air and expansive views over the trees. On the ground floor are located the public and semi-public spaces. There’s a huge living room that has no walls and not even glass, being a completely open space. There’s also a smaller living area that acts as a welcoming area and is connected to the upper level. The interior décor features exposed beams and white walls. The rest is rather simple.{pics by Fernando Gomulya and found on archdaily}
