Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
The Alila Villas Uluwatu is designed to be an ecologically sustainable development. The architecture project is located on the dry svannah landscape of the Bukit Peninsular of the Indonesian island of Bali. It comprises of a 50 suite hotel with 35 residential villas.
The architect WOHA Designs, explore the potential of the fusion of vernacular architecture with modernist design. Traditional Balinese pavilion architecture (like commonly used in Balinese house design) and rural landscapes are combined with the modern dynamic treatment of space and form. Rather than assembling stereotypical images of Bali or generic resorts, the architect put the first principles around the pleasures inhabiting the particular site, thus resulting a very sophisticating architecture.
Uncommon design practice was developed for the project, inspired by the local farmers terraces of loose piled limestone boulders. A terraced low pitched roof was developed using Balinese volcanic pumice rock, which is a natural insulating material and can also support local ferns and succulents. These terraced roofs blend with the landscape, keeping the original wide open panoramas that make the site so unique.
Another unique concept also applied for the hotel rooms. Each of them designed as inhabited gardens, rather than an interior room. What usually makes a wall is concrete, now it was replaced by garden, which made most of the activities sleeping, eating, lounging and bathing occur in a garden environment. Every hotel villa has a pool with a cabana overlooking the sea. Via
