Hikari House is a residential project located in Bandung, Indonesia. In a house where people lives and grow, layout plays a significant part in the design of a residential house, which speaks about the connection and synergy between public, private and service areas.
2 houses being designed as one building with 2 families live there. Manageable means that the building must response to the owner's wishes, and hence it has a hierarchical room programming according to the public, semi-privat and privat areas. The courtyard is meant as a public area as well as an intermediary between the houses, also to allow maximum natural light and air into each house while the terrace becomes an intermediation between public and semi-privat areas, being main characteristic of a tropical house.
