Built in an affluent suburb of Jakarta, Indonesia, the Slanted House stands out as an architectural masterpiece. The unorthodox shape of the home however was more than just an aesthetic statement, but as a symbol of anti-establishment.

The Slanted House is surrounded by homes from prominent politicians and celebrities all of whom utilize the area to assert their cultural and social statuses. Typically, Mediterranean and European design concepts were used as a symbol of success. The Slanted House however, defies these unspoken codes, opting for a striking slanted facade -- ultimately a rejection of the community's unwritten rules.

The glass-enclosed space however continues the area's traditions of beauty and opulence. The home features sleek modern furnishings, unparalleled privacy and a covered swimming pool, intertwined with a lush garden terrace.
