Red Brick Architecture And Indonesian Vibes From East Java

Project Omah Boto (which means ‘Brick House’) was born out of a client’s request for “Indonesia vibes”. The build site is located near the Pari Temple and Sumur Temple, Sidoarjo, East Java, which opened up the idea of historical red brick architecture that stems from the Majapahit Kingdom era. The materials and manufacturing techniques are passed on to craftsmen in Trowulan Village, home of the red brick industry, to this day. Andyrahman Architect team invited craftsmen to partner with them during the architectural process, making their skillset and integral part of the design. Other Nusantara elements, including bamboo, wood, and rattan, were introduced into the design to form a marriage of true Indonesian character.
