“Modern Contemporary” house concept started in Japan since 2016 then inspired architect to design cubism house concept. We develop the concept by determining the shape of basic geometric shape. Architect then tried apply the basic geometric shape to square which reflected the cubism shape. This modern contemporary style is applied widely by creating square spaces, both inside and outside the house. Viewing from the top, this house is supporting by 4 squares which resemble boxes then combined into one. The square shapes are placed facing each other, this house must have large square opening to provide well air circulation and is set to adjust the room shape.
Further more this house is also applying monochrome nuance, which bolster modern contemporary concept up. Monochromatic colour scheme which is used is combination of two colours: white & dark grey that can create a monochrome nuance. The combination between BOX & MONOCHROME finally bring the MONOBOX concept.
The land which is actually spacious, but the owner doesn’t need a large house, and determining a remaining land for the future plan. Previously, the owner wanted the house to be only visited at certain time but then the owner decided to stay in there permanently for one family capacity. This modern contemporary house has a dynamic characteristic, this concept is purposive applied so the future house plan can run and be adjusted and still harmonize with the current building.
Architect added a little touch to the main stair. It is made like not using a railing. However, the railing is also used as a storage. Considering the family habits who like do things together, architect then applied an open layout concept, L-shaped, so the scenery outside can be seen from each corner of the house. Meanwhile, space division of the house applied a mass separation system. The first mass is used for the main function inside the house. The second mass is used for services function. This house also applied an expanded metal on some parts and rooster on its walls.
