the indonesian architecture firm, AGo architects, has designed the ‘3500 millimetre’ house for an architect and his young family in south jakartathe narrow program is only 11.5ft (3.5m) wide by 55.7ft (17m) long and is a result from the client’s desire to build a home based on the things they really need instead of what they want. the resulting design values affordability and compactness by integrating well thought-out spaces and storage systems.

the narrow building is designed by AGo over three stories and re-evaluates the functional arrangements within a gap site while creating bright and airy spaces. the resulting scheme comprises a 100sqm area that provides basic programs for its users with a 35m2 master bedroom occupying the ground floor, living-dining-kitchen and laundry at the second level, a bed-play-study space for the son, and a rooftop with a city view.

one of the key ideas of the project is to create compact living spaces with rich experiences by generating a space without walls, providing various floor levels and ceiling height. integration between furniture modules and functions such as stairs and activities create a compact house experience leaving the house free from clutter.

the narrow house site leaves the house a west facing orientation, which uses perforated steel and a polycarbonate façade to filter the direct sunlight to the interior. skylights are located on each floor to create dramatic natural sunlight experience from upper to ground floor. a structurally insulated superfoam panel is used for the wall to reduce heat, noise, reducing the cost and increase construction speed. the ‘3500 millimetre’ house provides a solution to way of compact way of living, offering freedom and adaptability of space.
