This villa is located around the crowded area of Umalas, Bali. We designed this house to fulfill the needs of a Holiday Home for a small happy family. This strip of land is surrounded by a typical tropical environment including Balis cultural soundtrack in the background. The river flowing past the site gives this piece of land a tranquil feature to its crowded surroundings in North Kuta.
Next on the list was the unique architectural concept. The idea was that this house would embrace every space tropically. Every person inside each space should be able to enjoy the Balinese surroundings and experience a tropical life. We brought simple shapes into play, staggering one block over the other. By doing so, we created open spaces underneath which then acted as the main spaces of the villa.
Talking about materials, we wanted to use simple and locally crafted materials. As a result, the materials that we chose were local stones and local wood, and to create a special architectural feature using bricks. Therefore, the local Balinese raw brick pattern was adopted into this project.
