The Halo Residence, Jepara

  • Location: Jepara
  • Building: Residence
  • Site Area: 2208 sqm
  • Total Floor Area: 1300 sqm

The Site is located on the southern hillside not far from Pantai Ngelom and Pantai Mororejo. Located right up on the hill of Jepara, Bandengan Village has maintained its rural Javanese charm and offers a relaxed hillside setting away from the crowds.

The proposed land has an area of 2208 sqm on previous plantation land. There are few plants or trees on site, however its sides, are fertile enough for tall trees and plants. The majority of the site is surrounded by rice fields, and plantations, which may be earmarked for development at a later stage. To the left side, a plot from the site a villa is currently being built. There are magnificent outer views, with the potential to capture sea views from upper levels. An access road has a dead-end that gives the advantage of the site remaining quiet and serene. The route slopes down following the land contours The site is relatively contoured with a large difference in level, dipping in the west. We can play with levels to benefit views and create interest as one moves through each space.

Since the buildings sit on mostly contoured land, we can play with levels to benefit views and create interest as one moves through each space. Some areas can open up in scale, while others can be more intimate. The main areas can look to add extra dimensions in height and viewing points both internally and externally. With large overhangs, spaces can be used in most environmental conditions, while remaining open. Skylights and voids can be inserted to provide light and openness.
