Long House - Batujimbar Bali

2007

This modest house sits on 1000m2 of prime land in Sanur.  The brief was to create relatively low cost house for a young couple starting a family. We laid out the rooms on a single level strung along a spine, where the rooms were both positive and negative spaces– covered rooms and open in-between spaces and enclosed spaces – capitalizing on the cool tropical climate to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor rooms.  The living area was conceived as a sheltered space set in the garden.
