Nature Inspired House in a Bali Village Overlooking Rice Paddy Fields

kayu aga house baliThe Kayu Aga House was designed by Indonesian architect Yoka Sara so that the owner can live and enjoy the tranquil Balinese life. Located in a village called Canggu, Bali, idyllic surroundings make the location of this outstanding home suitable in connecting to the basic life, but gives the inhabitants the comfort of living in a contemporary dwelling.

This house was designed for an Italian businessman named Alberto Agazzi. It is shaped as a four cornered structure, with three orthogonal sleeping pavilions – each with private garden courts and outdoor bathrooms – and a carport determining the floor plan. Living and dining spaces are secluded in the central two-story pavilion, above which an elevated studio and a roof garden seem to be hanging. A semi-circular terrace reached via a modern oval bamboo/metal staircase rests on top of the pond festooned with simple white columns.

Displaying an architecture in harmony with nature, the Kayu Aga House is formed out of a series of curved walls and positioned to the east of paddy fields and beautiful sunrises.
