Minimal House Renovation for Maximum Impact
The Project ‘House 48’ is a renovation of a 330 sqm 2-Story house located in West Jakarta, Indonesia. With limited renovation budget, the client still sought to transform the old, unmaintained house into a modern comfortable home for their family of four. We created a facelift on the façade to embody a modernized expression, while maintaining existing house structure. Bold simple facade lines and contrasting painted monochromatic colors were used to accentuate the different house. Aesthetically the minimalist house combined both plain massing with the texture of vertical aluminum extrusions.

The key move was to relocate the stair and removing partition to the inner courtyard, resulting in the consolidation all the communal spaces into one large grand sun-filled space. Back of house programs including maid’s quarter and wet kitchen are all organized and separated through a different access entrance.
The original house has ‘traditional’ space planning, with guest welcoming space, living room, dining room, kitchen, and inner courtyard confined by walls and stairs. Our challenge was to transform the existing communal and private spaces without significantly changing the structure.
