kengo kuma envisions tranquil bali villa escapes with timber screening

 

kengo kuma has envisioned a series of villas located in the bukit peninsula, the southernmost point of bali. in total, there would be six villas named ‘tsubomi’, a yoga pavilion, and greenhouse constructed on a gently inclined site and perched on a sandstone cliff overlooking the indonesian coast.

the construction intends to marry architecture and nature. kengo kuma titled the project ‘tsubomi villas’, a name that translates from japanese to mean ‘flower bud’ — a form that is showcased in the hyperbolic paraboloid roof canopy. this delicate screen would be fabricated using layers of overlapping wood, protecting the villas in a way that privacy and openness can coexist.

in turn, this organic and blossoming structure corresponds to the existing topography, tropical climate, with the interior design following a similar sympathetic relationship evident in the exterior. the surrounding landscape will turn into a sprawling garden to include water features, local vegetation, high palm trees, and layers of flowers.
