Architectural concept
In response to limited site compared to huge program. architects tried to elaborate and combine two courtyard spaces arranged vertically and super imposed with each other.

First courtyard was put on raised ground floor, which can also act also as a transition and buffer area from public space in front and rear, semi public, living room. Second courtyard located on the second floor will act as intermediate outdoor space from master bedroom and surrounding neighborhood. Consequently, the above layer of courtyard would be able to be penetrated by sunlight and natural air to give life to courtyard below.

The architects decided to apply shallow reflecting pond within above courtyard and using glass as a base of it, to allow daylight to penetrate the courtyard and room below. The shadow of moving water during daytime from reflecting pond gives a sense of nature inside the foyer room below.

The void also crafted in few places of the above courtyard gives access to daylight and air to the layer below. Swimming pool was located on the first courtyard, ground floor, according to the zoning requirement and at the same time, it acts as a daylight reflector to this outdoor space.

The material used in this building has a light and bright, earthy color scheme to achieve a sense of natural, contemplative and serene living environment.

Interior concept
Using a modern, simple and minimalistic style of furniture, architects tried to to create a warm palette, combining some ethnical and classic piece of decorative furniture and artwork. The marble floor in the public living and dining room acts as a background for white leather sofa and with ligne rosset standing lamp, and modern glass stainless steel coffee table.

The custom made, main entrance, wooden door was made by Kayun (wooden artist from Bali), designed with specific floral pattern, to reflect the courtyard inside. The dining table was also made from one piece natural finished wooden slab, juxtaposed with antique, decorative chinese cabinet set in front of the khaki, wall paper finish, background.
