Simple Square House Plan Room Layout & Construction
The simplicity of this square-plan cube contemporary house particularly comes from its building materials and its finishing. This 185 square meter modern rustic-style house is made from concrete columns and concrete joists become skeleton structure while bricks become partition walls; both exterior and interior walls.
First uniqueness detailed architecture design is the roof. The roof structure is inverted, like a butterfly roof but with its four sides of roof. At the central of the inverted roofs a square hole created, like the multi-level spiral plan house from previous ArchInspire’s article. The concept also has similarity. By creating a square hole at the center of the house, rain water freely flow inside the house, make a natural outdoor ambience taken and bring it inside house.
The difference between this modest square home with that multi-level Japanese house is in this house the courtyard (site above the hole) really become a pond. The pond is wider and has no partition panels between the courtyard pond and interior of the house.
With four side of inverted roof, of course at the edge of a square hole, gutter created. Built-in concrete gutter flow the rain water to shallow pond below it.
Second detailed architecture design is its unique layout arrangement. This simple square house divided into two interior zones diagonally. First zone is open-plan living. Second is private area zone. The open-plan living a spacious indoor area consists of living, dining, and of course a kitchen. The private space consists of three bedrooms. First bedroom has its own bathroom. Second and third bedroom has shared bathroom. Another bathroom exists at front of utilities room.
