The Rice Barn Home / Okay-Thengono Design Studio
Textual content description offered by the architects. The Rice Barn Home design is basically pushed by responding to the location’s environmental situation and by celebrating the inherited conventional native building methodology. Given a compact lot and a short by the shopper to have enough applications in the home, our method seeks to fuse Indonesia’s vernacular structure with modern constructing know-how to accommodate at the moment’s dwelling way of life. Thus, we included vernacularism by utilizing parts from lumbung padi (Indonesian Rice Barn), synthetized with fashionable materials alternatives.
The type of the home was impressed by lumbung padi whose construction is constructed on 4 columns with a floor ground slab raised 2m above floor. Characterised by two ranges, the standard barn home is often constructed with contrasting spatial qualities – the bottom stage as an open-sided pavilion and the primary stage as an enclosed personal area. We related these spatial qualities with dwelling program placements.
The gambrel roof design from lumbung padi is modified right into a trapezoid prism holding personal applications akin to bedrooms and personal loos. The roof of the prism is punctured with a round skylight on the heart, and the trapezoid’s slanted partitions are punctured with window openings to provide pure mild and permit cross-and-stack air flow all through the personal quarters.
Nested beneath is an open-plan front room that’s linked by a central spiral staircase. The lounge is enveloped with frameless bi-fold doorways that blur the outdoor-to-indoor boundary. Surrounded by steady terraces and vegetation, the lounge mimics the openness of the pavilion from lumbung padi, permitting as a lot pure wind move to go via from all sides. With the shifting way of life these days, entry to pure air flow is taken into account to be a big factor within the high quality of life, which bolsters the openness of pavilion spatial high quality.
All different supporting applications are clustered on the bottom stage to serve the wants of the dwelling applications on the degrees above. The modernization of the standard home barn was achieved via making use of a number of fashionable constructing applied sciences and materiality that accommodates at the moment’s way of life.
