We bought a row house. We were lucky to get the unit at the end of the line near the jungle. Architect let us transform it as much as we wanted - and so we did. I have redesigned almost every aspect of the house. It is a tiny 33 m2 with 55m2 garden. It is located in Kuwum.
We have been on the building site almost every day. I was providing drawings and explanations, and my wife translated into a local language. She speaks Indonesian, Java and even some Madura. (she is from Probolinggo) It proved to be quite an effective combination.
"Sadus tiles" shop has published our design in the "custom" catalogue
The wall on the left is made from hand made tiles we chose from a pile at the "Sadus" shop.
The wall on the right is a "river mud stone" It may not be for everyone's taste, but we happen to like it.
Plan for the building site so workers understand what we want.
Plan made for me, so understand what I am doing.
The tiles in kitchen are custom design. It is a hexagon, which gives three different flower patterns.
Design a pattern in grasshopper -> the shape is a traditional Bali flowers -> hand made by Sadus tiles
instructions how to install -> check on the building site often -> The result
Furniture is made to custom dimenstions
The fence is designed in Rhino -> selection from ready made patterns -> hand made at a local terracotta workshop
The terrace roof is made by local masters. Turns out our village Kuwum is a center for woodworking in Bali.
