Serene Timber Screen House in Jakarta

Serenity from the city was the main objective in creating this unique home in Jakarta, Indonesia, designed by Eben Architects. The 550 square metre home is an open and relaxing environment, which combines with two courtyards to establish a tranquil connect with nature. These flowing living spaces give the homeowner an enriching contrast between life at home and their intense work life in the noisy, dense capital region. Slatted timber screens protectively encase the exterior of the house to provide shade and light play inside, plus privacy from the street. At night, the timber screened home becomes a mysterious lantern in contemporary linear form.
