The union of vernacular and modern architectural patterns is always an interesting proposition but the results will not always be exciting. It is a domain where the architects and designers need to tread carefully to succeed. The same combination was used by firm WOHA for the Alila Villas Uluwatu located on the Island of Bali and the results are definitely pleasing. The intention was to come up with a pleasurable lodging instead of replicating the famous generic resorts that are so famous in Bali. Photography by Tim Griffith & Patrick Bingham-Hall.
The location is absolutely gorgeous and the views are extraordinary. Having a house there is like a dream come true. Still, it’s not easy to come up with something that looks impressive and is simple and practical in the same time. But it seems like this structure has it all figured out. It’s a very beautiful construction, with a modern but relatively simple design. Still, there are some very impressive elements, like that terrace and the outside space. But while the exterior is imposing and impressive, the interior design of this house is more quiet and simple. It’s a very chic place and it could be a great place to spend the holydays and vacations.
It’s a place where you can go to find luxury and relaxation, where you instantly forget about all the problems and the stress disappears as soon as you see the calm ocean. It’s an exquisite location and a particularly beautiful mansion.
