At first glance, this house looks like broken in half and then the roof suddenly gets your attention. But what’s more interesting is how it is called, The Distort House, which was inspired by the concept of its designers about “twisting out something from the usual line”. The TWS & Partners designed this contemporary residence in Jakarta, Indonesia that features an efficient, heat-deflecting terracotta roof. It also highlights the use of reused and recycled materials, like the wooden windows, while the columns and beams are just exposed with its natural concrete plaster color, among the white walls. The house is given a chance to breathe by having a huge living room without walls or even glass that makes its residents feel living in the middle of a natural forest.
