WOHA sculpts the balinese cliffs with alila villas

rainwater is harvested naturally, conserved, and re-routed to pools and gardens to feed the plethora of balinese plants that work to preserve the indigenous vegetation. the result is a seemingly small scale private composition of rooms hidden within the context, with a sensible design that does not retract environmentally or socially from its location.
