The location of openings should be adjusted to the room in need of natural light. Also, sync with the direction of the beam so that he can enter through openings that we make.

Air Circulation

Smooth circulation of air makes the air inside the house cooler and healthier. Easy exchange of air, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels balanced. Keep the ceiling is not too low. Hot air under the roof will be easy on the body, if the ceiling is too low. Minimum ceiling height is 3m from the floor. That way, the temperatures at the top is not easy on the body.

You can also request made under the cavity or hole in the roof. Height ranges from 10cm-20cm in length which can be adjusted to the size of the roof beams. This will make the air cavity under the hot roof, easily exchanged with a new air cooler.

Water Supply

At least, every one occupant requires 60 liters of clean water per day. To ensure the provision of water, a house requires a water storage tank (reservoir).

Making water wells must have a sufficient distance from the septic tank hole. Minimal is 3m. If less, it is feared choli bacteria from septic tanks will seep into water wells clean.

Waste Water Channels

A healthy home is also characterized by a good sewer. Waste bias comes from the kitchen, bathroom, service area. Consider the following.

  • Installation of pipe bends should be minimal in order to smooth the flow of waste water flows.
  • The slope of the discharge pipe from the source to roil the city is 70 degrees. Degrees that will make waste water flowing lancer.
  • Use a trap for the goose neck pipe under the sink and the sink so that the insects caught and prevent the musty odor.
  • Replace the bathtub control in the range 4m distance between one another.
  • Channel effluent wastewater from toilets to be made separately and distributed only to the septic tank.

Walls and floor are dry

Moisture may occur in the walls and floors. This will create a room that tends to wet and become a source of breeding of germs.

You can apply the tiles. Ceramics is a type of waterproof material. Floor or wall to be easily dried.

The walls are attached to the wall of a neighbor’s house will generally moist. Between the two walls with water-resistant materials (waterproofing) before it is closed ceramics.

Garbage disposal

Make sure that in making the design of the house there is adequate landfills. Bins should be sufficient to accommodate the amount of garbage daily. There is a cover, and have holes for drainage if the trash was cleaned.

Wells penetrating

Clean water is increasingly difficult to obtain. Meanwhile, we often let the rain water flushing into the city line. You can ask the architect of your home to provide rain water wells in your yard. A minimum by making a biopori hole.

Some things about the above you can discuss with the architect. Once the stage was built there to always care for and maintain the cleanliness of the house. All this will make your stay more calm. Living comfortably with the family for a long time.

Minimalist lifestyle philosophy represents a practical, dynamic, concise, effective, and efficient, which is applied in all aspects of life including house building architecture, interior space and exterior gardens. Collaboration minimalist house and garden became the medium of communication between architecture and landscape with a form of contrast, hard-soft, rigid-soft, dead-alive, geometric, dynamic, and between man-made (cultural) and nature.

Minimalist eliminate saturation with the use of decorative ornaments, knick-knacks accessories. Character and quality of spaces created is determined by the existence of space itself, not by the furniture and knick-knacks accessories in it. Space becomes felt relieved (empty, immortality, meditative atmosphere) according to the primary needs of residents, to optimize the circulation of healthy fresh air, and lighting is abundant sunshine (rich colors).

Natural lighting from windows, doors, transparent walls (stained glass, glassblock), or skylights, shade trees, plants and composition of pavement, the right will bring the shadow objects from sunlight reflected off the walls as a natural aesthetic separate elements. While the game is very artistic lighting the lamp, both spotlights, light plant, up to the chandelier with geometric shapes, is able to liven up the evening.

It should be understood, the concept of Western and Eastern minimalism is somewhat different. Western minimalist concept of rational functional tend to put more emphasis on the function of space and material honesty of expression. While the concept of minimalism is very Eastern-influenced philosophy of Zen Buddhism that emphasizes simplicity, harmony, efficient, and effective, and symbolizes the emptiness and silence (spiritual values​​) for each space created clear, plain, and clear, so the space can be lived greatness of the Creator. Being a minimalist nature.

Minimalism requires the alignment of materials, shapes, colors, and textures with the impression conveyed to the warm, intimate, romantic, natural, or futuristic. Monochromatic color game with themes such as grading the two primary colors create the spatial unity between house and garden.

Use of building materials (house and garden) minimalism is not necessarily expensive. Use simple materials (a strong element of simplicity) rather than a luxury with expensive materials, and natural materials (the elements of harmony with nature). Exposure to the dominance of material (soft and hard) will produce certain effects that different. Design and calculation of the detailed structure can save the use of materials with the results of building a house and garden optimum artistic look.

Arrangement of furniture requires regularity, where all objects are located at regular positions respectively. The room filled with furniture that is highly efficient and functional course. Furniture chosen only really needed, not a decorative element, if possible multifunctional. Room was clean and seemed relieved. Furniture interior and exterior with geometric shapes aims to maximize use of space, there is no gap or space left to die.

Parks play an important role include the beauty and harmony of nature into the building and unite with the surrounding natural environment. Park as a dynamic live objects instead give spirit to the minimalist home that often seem cold and stiff.

The fence is designed to strengthen the impression of a minimalist home of textured concrete (horizontal / vertical), or betel leaf walls (pieces of stone be nested), which was becoming a trend, until the hedges soften the stiffness of the building.
