At its ore, movement of architecture concept method has tendency to return to basis. When experimental modus have been frequently is acted architect, it is not impossible if the approach will return to basis and more simple.
At the farthest creative process of the architect of her/his creation, surely there is a break point which makes architects more appreciate with basic values. Because, experiment process need trial and error process, check, and balance, from materials, technologies around architecture, also space and building philosophy. If not, experiment just a story, because the functional value can be lost.
At residential project created by Evan Davin Lee, we’ll see the caring to history of social and condition of geographical original of land. Land placed between sea, and canal, made Evan have inspiration to make rigid, and adaptive architecture concept. Adaptive to wind, hot temperature, and air humidity. As fortress concerning to room inside, skin building part thicked, layers, and maximize hollow space. Transparent elements and draws postponing of wall thickness are in order to adapt land geographic.
Transparent and opened parts, conditioned for cross ventilation which useful to follow sea wind. Sea wind move from front building which faces the sea, through backyard that faces the canal. At certain times, sea wing flow fast, so it need strong wall between opened and transparent wall. To created strong and compact wall, the architect created various façade walls that implied rooms dividing. Before planed rooms arrangement, building is boosted up two meter to get fundamental floor. Zero point of floor functioned as garage and service rooms. From main door through garage and continue to back parts of building which faces canal.
At abaft parts of building, owner wants to make it as opened area and deck, for relaxed wide sitting area. This Deck has height around 90cm – 1m above canal water level. This deck also uses to anchor private boat/yatch. As place of relaxing, friendly design applied. The architect didn’t forget to complete it with waterfall flowing at constrictor wall. When night arrives, this waterfall wall seems to respecting enlightened by obscure light from indirect illumination at top wall and spotlight planted in underside.
Building frontage is dominated with transparent area. The function to maximize view frame of sea as room vista in. This area equipped with point of main lamps and lighting system capable to give “soul” at overall of building.
Architecture As Life Phase and Transition
The applying depend on various activity of dweller at each of life period. The implementation formed as wide rooms, pierces, and lines. Some rooms seems wider, some rooms looks small. But, more than that, function values more take the roles; dining room, kitchen, and sitting room, also open veranda have bigger dimension area than others room, such as guest room. Guest room designed in middle sized, because the function is not urgent. But foyer is biog, following others. So, main function foyer as transition room takes significant role as ideal room program.
Sitting room to watch television, placed besides building doorstep. This room actually placed resides in position of building corridor towards side aperture, so that seems flourishing public though is closed public access to side aperture. At the core, this home good for ideal reference. The concept enabling activity which bare, (be) free and open to change of settlement pattern of room interior applied in scheme of the room and furniture.
