The briefwas to create a maximum enclosure out of an existing two storey pitch roof house to contain a clothing shop plus an administration office forming a headquarter of a local Bandung clothing company SIXPAX. The building strategy was to retain all of the main structural components while removing unnecessary walls and floor slabs. Thus reveals the muscle; the beams and columns of the existing structure which then enhanced its function by inserting a couple of boxes at the upper level to contain the administration office and a meeting room while the shop itself take place on the freed-up space on the ground floor. The space created is a play of solid-void-solid expression behind a plain two storey height glass wall to contrast its appearance with the less glassy of the surrounding building.
