Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Elsye Alam is an award-winning interdisciplinary multiplatform designer based in Los Angeles. Her latest creation in home architecture was her own house in Jakarta. Alam’s residence hosts two generations and three households in a single three-storey building. The frontage of the house is in a way antithetical to the surrounding, in which houses are mostly covered with massive fences and guard booths.
An ‘E’ shape plan effectively organizes the internal masses of the house creating two inner voids that brings light and air deep into the house through both plan and section. Extensive vertical glazing around the inner courtyards and generous use of skylights negate the need for artificial lighting in the spaces including service area and closet spaces during the day, yet creates constantly changing light conditions that activate the interior.
The interior of the house is a series of free-flowing, continuous spaces that foster a supportive, interactive family lifestyle. The consistent minimal white palate in the common area gives visual dominance to the bold red prayer niche the bold yellow aquarium located in the heart of the dining-living areas, the dark wood ‘rolling carpet’ of the staircase, the abstracted Borneo jungle water wall with native natural stone and the vertical garden in the courtyard.
