    Default The architect of the unconventional in Indonesia


    West Java-based architect Ridwan Kamil designed a modern “resort-y” house for himself and his family in Bandung, Indonesia. The insulating properties of the 30,000 recycled bottles he used as building material help make indoor air-conditioning unnecessary.


    Among the other custom elements in the nearly 3,500-square- foot residence is a concrete-frame doorway in the main entrance. Ridwan describes it as a “floating frame” because it stands away from the ceiling, with the door hinged discreetly to the frame.

    the bedroom is neat.. the rest of the house is trying too hard to be 70's wacky. it has good pieces, just used wrong.
