Split-level Modern House Design
Modern house design built on urban lot with dimensions of 6 x 24 m. This modern house designed in open-plan, a transparent style, lighted and ventilated at the front and back. The house exterior structure is cubic-like, full of large glazing windows and structured by steel reinforced concrete cast and slabs in prefabricated concrete. The interesting design idea of this modern house design is the interior design layout that has split-level. Split-level interior structure developed to organize 150m2 volume because it’s sloping terrain and spacious interior needed. The interior distributed in over half levels and create a three story zone of building volume with beautiful unclear floor interior division. Both exterior and interior has wooden and iron elementals, combine with rawness of concrete this modern house is simple and economical but looks beautiful. First floor split-level spaces are containing kitchen-dining room and half-level is for living room and entrance area, while all infrastructures including water tank, heating and sewage treatment system placed in lowest level of the ground. Nest to kitchen-dining is simple modern outdoor garden. Second floor level for space between area and bedroom&bathroom.
