Security aspects were the starting point of the design process of this project. Being located in a high-density area in Jakarta, security and privacy of the user became the main requirements. It translated into a seemingly enclosed facade design yet not entirely massive with the use of wooden lattice.

The lattice was designed to enable the user to see from inside the house to the outside, while blocking the view from the outside to the inside and disguising room functions in the house so that the user’s privacy is maintained.

The house’s spatial planning was also made in regard of security. When most houses orientated outward, Rumah Beton was designed with inward orientation.
