Cool Modern Contemporary House
A land parcel located on a gentle hillock within one of the several select residential districts in Damansara incited the designers to conceive of an integrative architectural approach where the house is virtually an offshoot of the natural setting it is nestled in. Thus the architectural design concept for this new modern contemporary house.
The new modern contemporary house existing gradient of the sloping landform is construed to underpin an elevated cascading pool that announces a sense of arrival from the main entrance.
At the lip of the new modern contemporary house is the cascading pool, clad in the indigenous Sukabumi stone, sits on a stilt-supported platform to create a delicate interface with the surrounding foliage, impressing upon the viewer that the house is nimbly reclining in the fold of the landscape. A spiral staircase connects the pool deck to a lower tier of relaxation space, a snug corner brushing the feathery tips of greenery that offers the most candid contact with nature.
A lavishly cantilevered glass canopy of this new modern contemporary house denotes a transparent transitional space uniting the expansive outdoors with a sonorous gallery comprising of the interlocking living/dining room and semi-open kitchen.
The supple grain of merbau timber screen materializes at either end of this aisle, complementing the sleek unembellished aplomb of the roof above. Not only articulating the flanks of the bent aluminum roof profile, the introduction of the timber screens further furnishes the residents of this new modern contemporary house.
The passage through the interior staircase is devised to first undergo a spatial compression generated by the enclosure of an exterior appendage prudently wedged on the north-eastern façade, and tension is quickly resolved as this reverberating vestibule opens out to an airy hallway giving access to 4 bedrooms on the second storey.
