Modern residence in indonesia follows Feng Shui principles

 

‘Edw house’ displays innovative design in Bandung city, following Feng Shui principles. Designer Michael Noerhadi from Rdma Designs held the project of the modern three-story family house in Indonesia. Reflecting the ancient traditional Chinese geomancy practice, the design process came forth by dividing the space into nine equal sections, representing the eight cardinal points and their center. Four of the zones were considered favorable for living functions and were elevated to preserve natural light and open views. Maintaining the Feng Shui system laws, the rooms’ foundation was connected to the surface of the ground and supported by manufactured earth mounds. The cantilevered layout retained the hierarchy of distributed areas.

Cantilever volume distribution induces hierarchy in the layout

 

The top floors are dedicated to the private uses of the family house and they gradually extend downwards to two floors below. All sections are conjoined through stairs, hallways, and ramps. For the framework of the house, Rdma Designs firm applied steel columns to eliminate the use of load-bearing structures. In the interior space of the common areas, light strips illuminate the residence and the ceilings present translucent slots. Details such as the mounting kitchen island complete the design with consistency.
