A fine representation of tropical-industrial luxury, this villa serves as a perfect home for weary travelers seeking solace in-between their Bali holiday. With 410 sqm building surface in 800 sqm of land, the centenary mango tree planted around the property gives the sense of security and closeness to nature in the best possible way for everyone during their memorable stay.
The interior blend the luxurius material with the textured material, wood and stone. The architects play with the contrast of black and white shading in different type of material.
The villa’s double-high living rooms are created to resemble an elegant ‘glass box’ overlooking the lush tropical garden, while a gallant marble wall becomes the focal point of the property’s entire space.

The optimization of the position with the solar study and the use of large veetation to shutter the sun during different period.
The dominant material for the Villa are glass, steel and wood, to get a blend between modern and tradition, using local material to create contemporary living in a tropical whether.
