Located in Jakarta, Indonesia, this beautiful house was a project developed by atelier riri. The reason why it’s called the Tent House is because it features a tent-like-shaped roof. This offers it a modern and unique look and in the same time it makes the house stand out in the surroundings.
The roof is definitely the most eye-catching part of the house, especially with the dark red color that instantly meets the eye. The roof is also made from friendly recycle able metal that supports the concept of sustainable living that the owners are aiming for.
The house actually sits on a large lot but only occupies half of the space. The rest is a large open space, perfect for relaxing outdoor time. The interior and exterior areas of the house are very clearly defined but they still manage to create a smooth and subtle contrast, communicating with each other. The interior of the house is simple and elegant. The predominant color is yellow which creates a relaxing and warm atmosphere. This, in combination with all the wood elements and pieces of furniture create a really inviting image.
The house was designed for a young couple with a child. Since everyone needed their personal space, the house was cleverly divided into separate rooms, located conveniently on both levels. The first floor includes the public and service areas while the bedroom, the child bedroom and the bathroom are located on the upper floor.
