1. Contemporary Balinese House Byron Bay

This Home designed for a property just on the outskirts of Byron Bay is a synthesis of contemporary architecture and Balinese design.

The overall design concept was generated from the integration of a recycled hand carved post and beam timber structure “Juggula” imported from Java. The “Juggula” provides for the internal support structure as well as defining the major spaces allows for centrally located roof clear stories. The exterior walls of the house add another layer of richness to the spaces being a combination of timber post, rendered block and hand craved stone around the windows. Essentially the design is 2 pavilions linked by a connecting space that orientates to the sun with generous decks as a surround. This home is perfect match for the client who believes Bali is Heaven.
