Striking white facade shelters a modest family home

Here’s a house that knows how to make the most of the lot it’s got. Designed by Indonesian studio Semiotic Arsitek, the UR House in Jakarta, Indonesia, is sandwiched between two existing homes on a small site.


Working with a tight budget, the architects went big on curb appeal with a striking white facade comprising two gables. The family home is split in two—both aesthetically and thematically.

The entrance, with a small terrace on the way, leads up to a volume clad in semi-opaque glass. Inside, the living room and dining room are joined in one large, open-plan space that was as much about functionality as it was about budget; the architects say they cut down on budget by simply cutting down on the walls.


While this common area is more open and airy, the second volume is more opaque, jutting over the driveway to create enough space for three bedrooms.
