An absolute masterpiece that combines elements of traditional Javanese architecture and design with modern aesthetics and comfort this stunning private residence is nestled in the heart of one of the busiest cities of the world! This makes the even more special as one is left mesmerized by the green envelope that surrounds the home and its unique interior.
The ground level houses the bedrooms while the kitchen and dining room are nestled on the second floor with the living space placed on the top level to give those inside the best possible views. Combining nostalgic past with modernity and personality this is a cabin that definitely is unlike any other we have ever come across!
The double-sided fireplace draws its inspiration from the exterior façade as concrete bricks also end up adding textural contrast to the modern setting. Smart décor and a neutral color palette complete this delightful residence where the homeowners might just end up spending more time outdoors than inside!
Many exceptional and iconic elements of a traditional Javanese house have been brought to this beautiful urban home and reinterpreted to fit in with a more contemporary context. The classic in Javanese homes is altered by creating flatter roof forms but the design essentially remains inspired by the older homes in the region.
Lighting is barely ever an issue during the day with a flood of natural sunlight making its way even into the lower floor while cozy ambient lighting supplemented by beautiful pendant lighting takes over at night. With a wonderful wooden deck large pool and other small niches life at House JJ is more about the outdoors than the comforts of the interior.
