Description

Stoy HOUSE We live in a house, work in an office, you send your kids to a school. These place aren’t just the backdrop to your life, they shape your life – they define who you see, what you see, an how you see it. Architecture impacts how you feel every day, which isn’t surprising considering how much time we all spend inside buildings. To design and build his/her own home is considered a milestone achievement in an architect’s life. To be able to pull an effort usually reserved for clients ---for his own satisfaction and personal expression--- is priceless, especially when he’s free to express every peculiarity and to abandon any restraint raised by the demands of his clientele. In an increasingly global era, clients are even more exposed to trends, making them more assertive, thus leaving less room for the architect to explore his talent. One of the cure to this predicament is to 'dig' personal idiosyncracy and reflect it in their own home design. This was successfully done by architect Yanuar Pratama Firdaus, when designing his own residence: STOY House, located in the outskirts of Bandung, Indonesia. "Growing up doesn’t mean you have to give up your childhood.", said the co-owner of architecture and design studio House The House (www.housethehouse.com). Collecting toys has been Yanuar’s main hobby since his childhood: from an enormous collection of birthday’s presents, Happy Meal’s to bonus toys from cereal box, all has succesfully occupied his parent’s warehouse. Growing up in the nineties, his collection also spans the cultural phenomenons of that period: action figures of The Simpsons, Star Wars, and DC characters remain intact, covered in their original packaging. Stoy HOUSE STOY House is an acronym from Sosio’s Toy House. Sosio is the name of Yanuar’s first son, and this home was designed to meet the need to reconcile the father’s hobby, and creating a fun environment where his son could grow and develop fondness for architecture and toys. Yanuar put an emphasis to an open plan approach, using walls as a medium to display toys. This home brings together the concept of space and toys installation, so that the toys doesn’t need to have a specific enclosure for display purposes. Therefore, the walls and ceiling of the house considered as 'empty field' where the toys are exhibited in various methods. "This home will grow and as times past stories will take place within those walls. As an igniter for future events, I painted some parts of the wall with picture of toys and cultural figures", Yanuar said. For example, a part of the wall in the living room is painted with yellow and black paint that was used to for chalkboard / blackboard coating, so that the surface paint can be painted and repainted over and over. Another example is a hole in the living room that are decorated with various types of car toys from his collection. A staircase and an indoor bridge was also built encircling a void: whereas the area under the staircase serves as a storage solution and a place to put AV equipments. This area under the second floor void was then designated to be a proper place to hold a casual family gathering.
