MUSIC HOUSE

tws & partners as Architects

Music House is a 420 sqm residential built at AlamSutera, Indonesia, for a musician family. This house is designed to cater the activity of family and guests, such as playing instruments, recitals and rehearsals. It is a project of poetic arts, that carries continuity and harmony of strains of musical tones as its design concept. The final shape is a result of transformation of one basic form into a seamless form that promotes continuity and connectivity from first floor to second floor. The idea on continuity and harmony are adapted in the building through in – depth exploration of layout, materials and details.

The façade consists of 2 types of element, solid and semi transparent, just like how music has vocal weight. Solid façade illustrates heavy tones such as tenor, baritone or bass, semi transparent façade illustrates high singing tones like soprano.

The “solid element” is represented by materials like concrete, while the “semi-transparent element” is represented with glass and concrete grill to create the not-so-transparent effect.

The final shape of the building is a translation of one basic form into a seamless form that promotes continuity and connectivity from first floor to second floor level. The building mass at the back is created higher than the front to recite the flow of music tones, similar to how the music goes from low tone to high tone. From interior perspective, this house minimizes the use of partitions to create continuous and open living space. The stairs create the flow of space, and also functions as a space for displaying artworks. Inside the house, a large semi – transparent space functions as a living room.

Then, the space continues to dinning and kitchen area, and a large terrace with skylight functioned as an area for music rehearsal. The terrace is enclosed with curved pivod doors with glass to create dynamic look and open plan.
