Doctor House / Tan Lik Lam Architects

Situated in a dense urban neighborhood near downtown Bandung, Indonesia, the house’s main road is a 2.8-meter wide alley, which can only accommodate one small car at a time. Thus, we tried to make the layout as compact as possible in order to encompass setbacks, openings, and courtyard for passive cooling on a 186-square meter lot. The client is a pediatrician who grew up in the neighborhood and now lives with his wife and their only son.
