The challenge of maximising light whilst minimising solar gain in a house and gallery on a tightly packed urban plot in the tropical climate of West Jakarta, Indonesia, inspired the architect Adi Purnomo to make an intensive study of the annual and daily path of the sun across the site to generate its design. What he came up with is an interior that feels more like sculpting with light and shadow, report Setiadi Sopandi and Robin Hartanto, in the first of three Buildings of the Week from Indonesia, part of the exhibition Tropicality Revisited: Recent Approaches by Indonesian Architects, on show at the DAM/Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt until January 3, 2016.
