The Inside and Outside home is the first project designed by architect Tamara Wibowo, and was developed as a home for her young family in the port city on the north coast of Java.The house is located in the city of Semarang, Indonesia, on a corner lot in a hilly neighbourhood. The architect maid her main intention to create a 600-square-metre home that didn’t felt too big and made effective use of the place, incorporating the outsides in the interior of the house. The house, consisting of grey masses that have wood lined openings, is arranged geometrically based on functions. One space is the living quarter, one space is office and garage, and the other is the service quarter.All these spaces surround a empty room which an existing Mando tree has been growing since tens of years ago. This void becomes the fulcral point of the house.The house has tall and wide recessed openings throughout not only to maximize visual connection to its surrounding but also to let the house breaths by bringing light and air into the house. The articulation of the openings allows to produce an uninterrupted and boundless relationship between outside and inside of the house.The house uses contrasted but complementary materials of warm orange wood and cool grey concrete. These materials, kept in their raw conditions, create integrity and honesty to the architecture of the house through their unique natural characteristics.
