Balinese style villas and resorts are popping up everywhere—from Ibiza to St Barts to Singapore. But what is Balinese architecture? And why is it so popular today? Traditional Balinese houses, temples and pavilions are designed to allow man to exist in harmony with the natural forces of the universe—reflecting core Balinese beliefs about man's place in relation to the cosmos, the gods, the ancestors, and the world around him. Innovative local and Western architects have been designing resorts and villas on Bali for decades, drawing their inspiration from these local traditions. In this one-of-a-kind book, author Julian Davison provides a comprehensive guide to Balinese architectural forms, the Balinese belief system, the rituals associated with building, the materials and construction techniques, and the intricate ornamentation used. Over 100 watercolor illustrations and photographs provide a clear picture of the island's architecture as well as an eye-opening look at a culture and a people that have captivated the world's imagination.

With over 500 gorgeous photographs and extensive commentary, this book is an exploration of Bali's most most stunning homes and gardens. Bali has long been a creative inspiration for the world—providing exciting new design ideas that are emulated today in homes and hotels around the globe. The open to the elements bathroom with interior courtyard garden, the giant bamboo sofa with handwoven cushion covers, and the garden pavilion or bale with raised platform seating are all examples of concepts that originated on the island. All these—and much more—may be viewed in Bali By Design. Bali By Designs provides coverage of the latest and best design work in Bali today. Featuring 25 stunning contemporary homes, it showcases the ideas of a new generation of talented international and Indonesian designers. Each of these extraordinary houses presents new solutions for age-old challenges—illustrating how stylish modern lifestyles may be achieved through clever architecture and interior design. See the selection of artful furniture and furnishings in open, airy rooms, the inclusion of natural stone in shady courtyards and swimming pools, and the plethora of handcrafted surfaces, objects and artifacts. Many of these Balinese houses explore ways of reducing power consumption for a more sustainable, low-carbon future. Others present a modern urban version of the tropical Bali interior design style that has its roots in a traditional rural environment. All, however, combine modern technology with exotic local materials—Balinese sandstone, volcanic rock, recycled ulin wood—for breezy indoor-outdoor living. With over 300 stunning photographs by Danish photographer Jacob Termansen and an insightful text by British author Kim Inglis, this book is a fitting testament to the originality and talent of Bali's design world.

This Balinese design book, containing over 300 beautiful photos and extensive commentary will add a distinctive tropical flair to your interior decorating and architecture. The phenomenon loosely termed "Bali style" has been the subject matter for countless books on art, architecture, and interior design. In this book, author and architect Gianni Francione showcases the new generation of Bali-style homes, interiors, and artifacts that utilize what he terms a new internationalism. Even though the timeless, distinctive Balinese bale, open to a panorama of rice fields and the evening breeze, is still there, it may now be made in marble or stone. Similarly, present-day villas, resort bungalows, shops, restaurants, and other buildings are just as likely to use modernist techniques and materials as they are to utilize alang-alang and coconut wood. Bali Houses presents this new departure in architecture, interior design, glassware, table settings, textiles, furniture, and furnishings in many never-before-photographed locations. It is a fitting sequel to Bali Modern.

This book, like so much of Bali, entails the telling of a story. Like any story there are the tensions between the sacred and the profane, the high and the lowuespecially as the main subject of this story, the hotel, by its very function, would seem to go against the persistence and resilience of traditional Balinese culture. But in each of these ten hotels, there is I believe, despite all the inherent contradictions of commerce and privilege, the sincere attempt to provide, even for the briefest of times, the feeling that this place is truly the island of the Gods, that these places are highly sophisticated architectures of welcome, offerings of refuge between mountains and sea.

Blending modern, chic designs with traditional sensibilities, the architecture and decor of Bali is the gold standard for tropical living. A thatched Balinese bale', overlooking a panorama of rice fields and open to the evening breeze, or a courtyard that combines temple carving with relaxing, recreational lounging space are enduring features of a distinctive "Bali-style". Shimmering pavilions, open verandahs, living rooms that invite the outside landscaping in—all are part of the Balinese tropical living experience. This book focuses on these timeless features and shows the new and exciting ways in which they are being interpreted. All the contemporary villas, resort bungalows, shops, restaurants and other buildings in the book, most never photographed before are new additions to the Bali scene. Each is unique, and, most importantly, characterized by a distinctly modern feel. Cleaner lines, more imaginative use of space, sharp angles, and the use of stone, concrete and ceramic roof tiles, are increasingly visible along with the coconut wood, teak and thatching. Stunning color photographs depict the residences set within their natural landscapes; architectural details; and a stunning array of individual interiors. Meticulous text compiled by an expert in tropical design, relates the various stages of the development of this new, international style, and complements the fascinating array of interiors featured.
