Monochromatic Elegance in Sidoarjo - A Residence for the Creative Duo

Nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of Sidoarjo, this residence stands as a testament to innovative design and personalized aesthetics for a young and dynamic designer couple. The facade of the house sets the tone, featuring locally sourced breathable black bricks that are artfully stacked to create a visually striking yet functional exterior.

The choice of breathable black bricks is not only a nod to local materials but also a deliberate decision to enhance passive cooling within the house. The strategic arrangement of the bricks allows for optimal ventilation, ensuring a comfortable and sustainable living environment. Simultaneously, the arrangement serves as an ingenious privacy feature, allowing the occupants to enjoy a sense of seclusion while embracing the creative spirit within.

While the house stands out boldly against the backdrop of the neighborhood, it remains a harmonious part of the landscape. The sleek lines and dark hues blend seamlessly with the surroundings, creating a contemporary masterpiece that enhances, rather than disrupts, the visual appeal of the neighborhood. Large windows strategically positioned throughout the house frame picturesque views of the landscape, allowing the natural beauty to become an integral part of the interior design.

The monochromatic color scheme, carefully chosen as the house's main palette, serves as a sophisticated backdrop. This intentional choice plays a dual role—it accentuates the sleek and modern architecture while providing an elegant canvas for the extensive personal designer collection owned by the residents. The house becomes a gallery of expression, where the monochromatic tones accentuate the vibrant hues of the curated artworks and designer pieces.

The design prioritizes the maximization of views. Thoughtful placement of windows and open spaces ensures that the residents can enjoy panoramic views of the surroundings. This intentional integration of the exterior landscape within the living experience blurs the lines between the indoors and outdoors, creating a sense of continuity and openness.

The innovative use of locally sourced materials not only contributes to the unique aesthetic but also underscores a commitment to sustainability. The black bricks not only serve an aesthetic purpose but also play a functional role in passive climate control, aligning with a modern, eco-conscious lifestyle.

EP cubes is a testament to the intersection of design, functionality, and personal expression. A dwelling where the facade becomes an artistic statement, the interior serves as a curated gallery, and the landscape seamlessly integrates with the architecture.
