The building and site planning are a contemporary interpretation of Balinese form and detailing to promote sustainable living in a sub-tropical climate. The architecture is deliberately restrained to integrate with the island’s natural features but sufficient robust to form the defining feature of its setting. Rectilinear form articulated by the interplay of strong roof forms over lighter structure offers natural daylighting, ventilation and spatial clarity within a series of linked pavilions designed to withstand climatic force. The house has been provided with a range of living spaces to suit private and communal use for an extended family with extensive entertainment and relaxation areas. Inside/outside connectivity with intimate courtyards and landscaped grounds that offer distant vistas of the ocean complete the development.
