This renovation project is a typical common house which is located in a housing neighborhood in Cinere, Depok Indonesia. As a common description, housing in Indonesia almost has the homogenous typology in various site dimensions. The homogenous typology here is a typology that has the tendency to maximize the space requirements, forgetting the room qualities in a tropical climate condition where natural lighting and ventilation are necessary.
The existing house condition has two floors, with the second floor using a reinforced concrete composite construction, wooden boards, and some steel girder. The client wanted a house that included one master bedroom with attached bathroom, two children’s bedrooms, and a living room. The client also wanted a dominant living room, which would become the center of family interaction.
