BLIGHT HOUSE is initiated by the client desire to have a contemporary modern style house design with a firm and efficient line in accordance with the client's budget, while functionally, the client wants a home design that has a wide impression with good air circulation and light. Architect then accommodated the request with the building mass design similar to a simple box with a little trick of thickness on the facade walls that not only displays a solid line of contemporary style house, but also efficient in terms of construction costs. Meanwhile, to accommodate optimal air and light circulation, architect uses the skylight element in this design.
In this design, the skylight's position is in the middle of the room connecting the void with the communal space on the first floor. To optimize the spread of natural light circulation which comes from the skylight that is not too wide to the entire room, architect tilted the main bedroom wall that intersects directly with the void and made the void seems like tip of the trumpet. Likewise, added glass openings from each bedroom towards void to accommodate the crossing of air circulation and natural light to these spaces.
The issue of limited budget owned by the client then architect simplify materials selection with a combination of finishing coating and white paint. The white color also serves to create a wider and relieved impression in the room.
