Diminished House was completed by Wahana Cipta Selaras and is located in South Jakarta, Indonesia. The home has rich colors – predominant is a dark gray stone – and wide open spaces, which allow the rooms to breathe.
The size of the house changed from 900m2 to 550m2 (5920 square feet). The previous structures of the house which were preserved and refurbished were child’s room, guest room, living room, garage and service area. Meanwhile the family and the master bed room has been redesign its location with consideration that the room has green scenery in the existing big trees. An open space corridor has been created to associate and connect the previous and new structures in order to represent the sequence of space from the entrance into the pool area. The landscape which was designed and reordered to fulfill the dream of the house owner, can be perceived by the presence of each inside room. The large rooms of the house which are used by everyone in the family were made with an open and transparent view so that the flow of air and the scenery displayed in the background of green walls and local natural materials could bring an impression that the room and nature are interconnected.
