‘Casa Saba’ by Artalenta is a summer house catering to the client’s family and friends. The residence would house up to 12 people, while the dining room could seat 18. The client loved nature so a pool and vast outdoor area were upmost important.
The site is located at the end of a paved pathway through the unspoiled green of Southeast coast of Bali. The site has an abandoned existing building which was taken down for the project. Artalenta’s challenge was to use the most durable building materials to endure the seaside climate.
The resident aims towards a resort feel that highlights material characters and modern form. Cubic volumes are elongated and perforated into a continuous structure that is united by roof and wall cladding’s graphic elements.
Artalenta brought nature into the structure through the colour scheme and use of local materials. The residence was to take inspiration from the surrounding landscape; white-beige of the sand, earthy brown from the fertile Balinese soil, verdant greeneries and the blue seas which the property overlooks. A low-lying cantilevered flat roof floats on the structure and weaves it into the coastal landscape.
