DL House is a project designed by
This house is located in a residential area in Jakarta, Indonesia. It occupies a 337,5 sqm plot of land. In contrast to the houses surrounding this project, which mostly adapted to Mediterranean style, this house is an attempt by Don Pieto & Henny Suwardi of DP+HS Architects to represent the younger generation’s taste which more keen into the natural and tropical modern atmosphere.
The brief was quite simple: a house for a young couple with a master bedroom and other bedrooms for children in the future and for visiting parents/in-laws. The client didn’t relish the idea of ‘closed space’, and they were clearly wanted a space where inside and outside blended together, a kind of livable open spaces.
The basic idea was to create a space where they can celebrate living in natural ambience, but still be able to enjoy ample contemporary amenities.
