The concept of BOXEL is initiated from mass shape which is box mixed with Pixel. Starting from Urban farming Hobby, client hopes that the house can fulfill client needs especially in food sector. Has a spacious yard, vacant land area is developed into garden palnt suppliers of food needs for residents of the house.
Utilization of the yard area as a food garden plantations is not only support client's hobby which is culinary, but also to support user activity at the main building. Based on client's brief, this house will be developed into family house which is this house will be a place for parents and client's sibling to gather up especially in special days. Standing on spacious land with utilization of remaining land as a plantation area, architect then develop this house design into several zones, which is consisting of public zone which will be used as a communal area, private zone which is bedrooms, then semi-public zone consisting of support rooms such as prayer room, audio visual room, and aother support zone such as service area and garage. That zones are connected with a room that functionate as a foyer. The zone division is not only influential to the building layout but mass building view which is like some separated buldings.
The mass form which is like a separate building is not without a reason. The design is made with height different in each mass according to the zoning to make it more dynamic. In addition, the opening direction is also more directed to the side and rear garden areas so that the front of the building looks more solid. This is intended to strengthen the concept of urban farming where the building will look like a pile of rocks when juxtaposed with the surrounding gardens. The visual concept is also supported by finishing the outer seath of the building which is unfinished material, which further strengthens the design character of this concept.
