Rumah Padang Linjong Residence | Bali, Indonesia | 2017

The residence was built in 3 years, located in Bali Indonesia. The main materials chosen were concrete and wood. Staying to a minimum choice to complement the natural landscape and environment. The house has a split leveling, so as you enter you can see into different spaces on different levels.

​​An overhanging concrete slab hangs on the side of the house, not only for a tropical brutalist aesthetic but functional to keep the direct sun from penetrating the double-height windows. The main living feature is a double-height void and upper-level music space for audiophile listening and Vinyls record archive. Studio space compromises of a box structure and an outdoor bathroom are situated on the ground floor which gives tropical living vibes.

The kitchen and dining area is full with no walls. All open to maintain the outdoor-indoor living and letting the cool breeze throughout the day. A bridge over the living room connects the upper floor bedrooms. The overgrown landscape softens the hard concrete structure and will continue to grow. Text description by the architects.
