house in where? in the city or country?

in the city its mixed. some big. some small. but due to poor planning, most houses have high fence. no garden at the front. many in alleys. bad position etc hehehe. but many new development of 'self suistained cities' boast a nice planning etc.

in the country or 'kampung' or 'desa' is more green. made from bamboo etc. the design is depend on the background of the people. afterall, Indonesia consist of hundreds of ethnic. many people loves how balinese design their house.

of course the size of the house is depend on how rich the owner is hehehehe

middle class and upper class housing in Jakarta tend to be connect to each other with a common wall. This means that the houses are not 4-sided, but rather two sided (front and back). Not many houses have side windows and big backyards. I like 4 sided houses, so i wish they start building them here.

Another architectural trend which Indonesians love for some reason are huge colonial-type columns. I think it looks tacky, and does not suit houses. I wish they do more contemporary and modern designs.

Here's a picture of "connected" housing:

Here's some photos of Indonesian house that I have (no, none of them is belong to me broke broke broke hehehe)

City/Modern Houses.






City/Alley Houses.. just want to show you the gates. Usually every alley have their own gates.


FYI, above pic taken in Katulampa. Which is where the Katulampa Dam is (further down). This is where water level is measured for Jakarta. If too high, then Jakarta will receive flooding.

Those pictures seem to be taken in the rural areas (due to the lack of surrounding buildings). City houses are usually packed closely together. Right, guys?

The first pic taken from Cipanas (Puncak) housing complex area.
The second and third from Rancamaya (Bogor) housing complex area. <- you can see Jakarta skyline from here. Far far far away.

Price tag for last year was around Rp. 1.300.000.000 (1.3 billion rupiah).
Anyone interested?

That sounds a lot like Thailand.. and a lot like Sweden also, although we have no fences, fewer columns and larger gardens.

Well, I suppose the four sided houses are more common in smaller towns and on the countryside. Just like in Europe

The first pic looks very......American!!!!
Seriously, Indonesian houses (belonging to middle and upper class) are (almost) always characterized by painted concrete and pitched clay tile roof. I rarely see exposed masonry like that pic I'm talkin' about. And that roof, for one second I thought I saw fiber shingles, although I know it's tinted clay.

Well, "middle class" is relative. This is a small road in Jakarta, and I'd say this would be your middle class-type area relative the rest of the city.
