San Francisco-based architects Id-ea's Interflow House breaks Jakarta's architectural norm with a dynamic linear external facade and clean modern lines inside.Photography: Fernando Gomulya
The sculptural home was designed within a 12x30m city plot. The minimal interior spans three main floors and was designed to be as fluid and open-plan as possible
The sheltered exterior staircase leads up to the common areas that overlook the parking space
The first floor contains a spacious open kitchen, casual dining arrangement and service areas
The south-facing house's light-filled openings and adjoining outdoor areas help decrease its indoor temperature, maintaining a pleasant atmosphere year round
Interlocking sub-levels mean that views through, and contact between floors and different areas of the house, can be easily achieved
The result is that Id-ea principle Elsye Alam and her team have created a welcoming family home that remains simultaneously transparent and solid, open and private
The second floor comprises the children's bedrooms, an open living room and family play area
The third floor hosts the master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and private balcony
