The architecture studio tackles structure challenges and prospects Sjarief’s sustainable and contextual strategy then, his DOT Workshop laboratory performs on building building and systems when Omah Library is the enterprise’s exploration hub. 

‘I try to re-create the extended record of craftsmanship in my spouse and children, who have been builders one way or a different for three generations,’ he states. ‘We count 60 yrs of practice due to the fact Indonesia’s independence. My father’s observe had to shut down in the 1998 economic crisis. Around that time, in 2000, I begun my journey into architecture. RAW Architecture is reviving this idea of a harmonic relationship concerning the craftsman, designer, folks, and properties as a complete. It has grow to be the manifestation of this belief.’

As a outcome, RAW’s work feels rooted to its spot, being at the similar time modern and experimental. Much of its portfolio is made up of contemporary new-builds (these kinds of as Alfa Omega Faculty, and Guha, a reside/work renovation and extension job, underneath) that feel organic and at house in their context. ‘We want to deliver unique, related, and local weather-responsive structures generated by collaborative exploration and explorations,’ he says.

Functioning with bamboo was a challenge the exercise realized a lot from, clarifies the architect: ‘The style and design and building process of Guha’s bamboo components served us learn about built-in patterns that use organic fibre composite resources with artifical, industrial types to make sustainable architecture. Performing with bamboo provides a perception of discovery but also uncertainty, as study and development in bamboo development technologies has not still been adequately developed.’

The build was led by regional craftsmen and contains a few floors and a metallic roof to the east of the present constructing, supported by the bamboo framework.
