Studio Jencquel weaves reclaimed natural materials into a dreamy Balinese villa

In the riverside village of Sayan, Bali, regional architecture company Studio Jencquel has crafted the Umah Hati — Indonesian for “Tranquil Heart” — a personal villa that embraces its lush, jungle surroundings in much more approaches than just one. Encouraged by the Balinese vernacular, the luxurious villa is a hybrid of Western and Jap structure influences and features modern-day features side by aspect with area craftsmanship. A normal materials palette, modest proportions and significant openings through the setting up help blend the villa into the landscape.

Done in about a calendar year and a 50 %, the Umah Hati villa is a 400-square-meter, L-shaped, single-tale construction that comprises a few bedrooms with en suite baths, a living home, a eating place, a kitchen area, a powder area and personnel quarters. The property sits on a spacious, 4,000-sq.-meter good deal and is oriented towards the palm tree-filled jungle and the Ayung River gorge.

Classic Balinese architecture not only educated the indoor/outside living working experience of the villa, which opens up to mother nature in numerous directions, but also the exquisite roof design crafted with reclaimed Indonesian ironwood. The roof is supported by Bankirai timber rafters bound with Japanese joining procedures, when woven rattan sourced from Sulawesi traces the underside. Strong ironwood shingles best the roof and deliver a dark contrast to the delicate volcanic Para stone — sourced from an Ubud river — that clads the exterior partitions.

Within, Indonesian teak is used for the inside walls, bedroom floors, windows and doors, which are all complemented by Asian and Italian marble surfaces. The architects also repurposed a century-outdated teak log into a breathtaking self-importance in the key bathroom. As the architects described, “Using significant-excellent supplies and innovative craftsmanship, Umah Hati helps make the most of its setting and context, emanating tranquility from the coronary heart of the house to its surroundings.”
