Tropical House

Efficient and practical requirements have become life in urban communities. It is not an exception in terms of design and construction of housing.

Basically, the building design should adapt to the environment. In this regard, environment, culture, until that time should be an important factor to be considered carefully.

As a country which became ecuador, Indonesia, of course, classified as a tropical country. Only the dry season and rainy season becomes.

"Therefore, houses in Indonesia must follow the tropical architecture." Architecture is a form of compromise design tropical environment built to respond to the natural conditions of tropical climate that is characterized by the intensity of sunlight is abundant. A true tropical architecture is in harmony with nature. Architecture is characterized by the use of natural materials and the use of natural resources as much as possible.

The traditional houses in various areas of the archipelago is a true example of tropical architecture. In general, the traditional house with a roof tilted in a variety of modifications, such as gonjong roof, saddle, pyramid of so rain water can flow directly, not pasting on the roof. Some of them are equipped with a large terrace and over hang, to create shade zones so that no direct sunlight in the construction room. The materials available in nature such as stone, bamboo, wood, leaves or the main ingredient in traditional houses.

Traditional architecture is basically a local policy that inherited hereditary. One can still be found in the House to the East, where the sun rises. Beyond our ancestors design philosophy is very diverse, oriented East House is intended to absorb solar energy is more natural.

Here, designers can harness the energy of home, in two forms, air and light. In this sense, a good House is a House that can take advantage of intermittent ventilation and natural light as much as possible.

The world of modern architecture, tropical architecture embodied in house design that is aimed at penghawaan light and natural, the creation of rooms open to create a cross ventilation, and the use of natural materials. Tejado, covered wide to create shade, it has a continuous opening of bandwidth up to the roof to create a lighting panghawaan and natural, using natural colours and the choice of materials from natural materials such as stone, ekpos brick, natural stone, wood.

The roof of the tropical House is generally highest possible to create an optimal internal air circulation. For the sake of the movement of air in the room, tropical style often deny attic (space under the roof). Roof made continuous, connected directly with the roof structure. 

The concept of tropical occupation will be enriched by the presence of tropical garden with a unique selection of tropical plants easy to treat and leaves grow wild like a shrub-senmak. Or another alternative is to make dry garden at home without ceiling that applies. From the upper garden, at the same time dry air is light in the room of the House. On the other hand, using stamped bright materials, lighting will be optimum.
