Motivated by conventional Balinese royal residences and sanctuaries, this house sits on a lovely projection of uncovered magma.


Tropical configuration ideas and time-respected building practices were utilized to fit the house actually into its setting.


The magma base grapples the house to the site, while the rooftop planes seem to buoy in the sky.


Wide shades shield the inside from the sun, while sliding window dividers open to unite inside and outside and cool the house utilizing existing breezes.


A stream of solidified magma goes through the site and typically unites the house to critical Pacific society wellsprings of vitality; the mountains and the ocean.
