GA House / Ivan Priatman Architecture

Project Summary – For a house built on a plantation for a family of four on the slope of Mt. Kawi in East Java, Indonesia, Ivan Priatman Architecture stacked two rectangular blocks neatly to minimize the cutting down of existing trees. The second-floor volume is rotated to cantilever past the first-floor volume creating engaging spaces that are formed by the juxtaposition. The house, all clad with local sandstone, blends the massiveness and weight of the textured stone blocks, with the weightlessness that is implied by the hovering volume.
