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.
