On the rear balconies and on the projecting master ensuite at the front of the house, the movable traditional Balinese motif screens are used to provide privacy and shade. The bedroom spaces and all living spaces are arranged with a central focus on the surroundings and the pool.

In Bali, a building can be successfully designed by the right builder with on-site supervision through careful planning. This way can result in a perfect building that suites with its function, concept, and people who use it. It is a project that can be an example where local cultures in Bali fuse with modern styles awesomely.
