Askarya Group is an integrated property development group born out of 4 creative minds. They have this concern about how it is getting harder for millenials to buy a house with Indonesia’s current economy situation. To solve the problem, they intend to create a small compact house in a well-designed manner with affordable price. Last Friday, we were invited by Kevin Desmond and Bandega Adhi Prasetyo — co-founders of Askarya, to visit the house they’ve developed.
The first house they made – called Rumah Askarya 01, is expected to be their solution to the increasing price of land in Jakarta and surrounding areas. It was designed by Tirto Wibowo as the architect, combining the earthly tone and contemporary style to the utmost. With only an area of 50m2, he created sophisticated minimal design that is unique and eye-pleasing. The house, in which located in Jati Asih, features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 main hall – specifically constructed to look spacious despite its size limitations by playing with diagonals and heightened ceiling.
Another distinct features are the gap on the wall behind the front door, an opening above the bathroom and a space on the bottom part of the wall. Note that every detail has a very specific function, makes the design of the house very efficient. Expect to see their upcoming project: the Askarya Residence which already on their blueprint.
