Here are a few words from Gayuh Budi Utomo:


A house Juanda Surabaya region has a design approach that the analogies with the existence of a Rumah.ia owner believes that the presence of a house must be in accordance with what he imagined.

Design process becomes very interesting because there are several alternatives as a facade that want different formations with the environment sekitarnya.setelah through some thoughts on the house facade finally selected a concept to describe the military actualisation as symbol taken the analogy of a military car with the colour green colour typical of the military.

To the home of a military officer is not formal then the interior was designed with the colours of non-formal rigour that is expected does not happen in this occupancy.

    Many of the posts on Dezeen claim to be fun but are the same repetition of what is seen as artistic design with great amounts of pretentiousness thrown in. This design never mentions 'fun' but probably has more than all these pretentiously fun designs combined.

    nevermind the car on top, this whole house is plain ugly

  • Whatcha

    One of the things an Architect should not do for the client.

    the only thing worse than living next door to that would be living in it…

  • junihaoni

    gimmicks could work if done tastefully, unlike this…they even got basic detailings & functions all wrong.

  • KGL

    I think they reached a point where they realised the design was so horrible that they needed to place a car on top to justify the 'quirkiness' of the rest the house.

  • jools

    It's just wrong on so many levels.

  • syarifa

  • yuri

    This is totally not describing Indonesian architecture.
