Pivoting doors offer breezes and views at Tamara Wibowo’s Indonesian home

written by André Almeida 

Rows of pivoting glass doors can be opened to allow air to flow through living spaces that open onto courtyards, terraces and lush gardens at this house of Tamara Wibowo’s in the Indonesian city of Semarang.

House of Inside and Outside 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 on a corner lot in a hilly neighborhood. The architect claimed her main intention was to create a 600-square-meter home that doesn’t feel too big and makes effective use of the site.

The property comprises a series of grey concrete blocks that are each dedicated to a specific function. One volume houses the living areas, another the office and garage, and the final contains the service quarters.
All of the main living spaces can be opened up to the central yard, which contains a lawn, swimming pool, and several seating areas. The large, recessed openings containing windows and doors on both levels of the house are lined with warm timber that contrasts with the cool grey concrete of the facades.

The materials used both externally and internally are kept in their raw state to maintain a sense of architectural honesty. Built-in furniture throughout the interiors helps to create a clean and uncluttered feel, with teak wood joinery, polished-concrete flooring and exposed plaster on the walls introducing various tones and textures.
