The need for space to be able to interact with the ‘outside world’ while maintaining privacy is the reason why a balcony is needed in a building.
As part of the courtyard on the top floor of the building, the function of the balcony is actually the same as the terrace on the ground floor.
In terms of the view obtained, even the balcony is able to provide a broad view of its higher position, such as a ship captain who is in the bow of the ship looking into the open sea.
In terms of construction, indeed the area of a balcony cannot be as wide as a terrace which is only limited to a fence of houses.
Balcony sections that can be free without structure or float only 1/3 of the total beam span. In terms of aesthetics, a balcony located on the front of the house will have a significant effect on the overall appearance of the exterior of the building.
Then, what functions and activities can the balcony accommodate? How about a cool balcony design for your luxury home?
Balcony Used As Corridor Between Spaces
Parquet floors with a simple arrangement of lines combine harmoniously with structural columns. Both provide a minimalist touch that presents a good lighting and ventilation system for the surrounding spaces.
This balcony can enjoy an open area in the middle of the house, a calm atmosphere, the beauty of irish leaves adorned with pretty little yellow flowers, and the gurgling of water from the pool on the ground floor.
Balcony with garden and sitting area
This house is designed with a kawung jawa pattern as a unique accent that confirms its existence as a tropical home. This balcony also has a sitting area to relax complete with a minimalist garden decorated with local lilies and tabebuia / sakura Indonesian trees.
Again, the balcony is the main element in the building facade. The greenish color of the 2nd floor balcony lighting system looks beautiful and clearly looks just above the fence line.
With Glass Fence
A small balcony fence is designed simply with glass and aluminum railings to give the impression of being light and ‘invisible’, while balancing the mass box of the building next to it.
This balcony is very cool and looks luxurious with cantilever on the second floor. The cantilever balcony blends nicely with a concrete roof that blends with the wall so that it looks like origami.
The size of the balcony and the roof that shelves it is made bigger and higher than the other parts.
Exposed wood characters bring out the natural side of luxury. Balcony as one of the design elements, can not be separated from the overall design, both in terms of structural and aesthetic.
Take advantage of the balcony according to its function while still paying attention to the structure and its significant impact on the overall mass of the building.
Balconies on the facade of the building, as well as balconies overlooking the garden area inside the building, must be thoroughly thought out from the very beginning of the design so that it becomes a unified element and
