Paradise in Bali

Paradise in Bali

Views of the Indian Ocean is what this angular house features, the perfect example of hedonism within architecture. Its pool and the details that comprise it make leaving it a hard challenge.

Carbon House is part of the expansion of the Uluwatu Surf Villas in Bali, Indonesia. The project was created by Alexis Dornier in collaboration with Tim Russo. Its modern design revolves around reclaimed Java teak, the wood is over 100 years old. The rest of the materials are andesite (volcanic rock), terrazzo, local limestone, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Something that stands out in its architecture is the ceiling, considered a transition space, half-covered and connecting the interior with the outside. Its multiple creases provide a sheltering feeling along with privacy. Its cladding was made with teak, contrasting against the limestone walls. The property could be described as a large puzzle made of individually cut plates and rocks.

The project features four rooms and its interior design is made up by customized furniture designed to fit in the angles offered by the space. It also houses a collection of the work by artist Andy Davis.
