External facade of Boh Visitor Centre comprise logs of varying girth and diameters cut to shape and size to fit into a metallic frame. Logs are taken off from fallen trees found on site during construction. The facade design is a demonstration of our commitment to sustaining the environment whilst working within the constraints of the site context for all our projects and our best intents to use naturally ventilated systems as far as is practicable for the internal environment.

Concept Chalet designs for the Maldives: A new paradigm shift? Located off on one of the seven islands currently developed for the new government, this resort chalet design is quite simply a brave departure from the typical Balinese architecture seen sprouting everywhere in this part of the world. Sharp and somewhat aggressively edgy design lines on the outside architecture belie the soft and comfortable and luxurious interior of this building. Associated wooden link bridges which connect a cluster of up to six units at a maximum ensure hotel guests ultimate and exclusive privacy throughout their entire stay.
We have seen so many Balinese chalets and have loved them all, but we really don’t see ourselves designing any of them, let alone try replicate the style of it or glorify it, nor attempt to imitate or copy it however simple or difficult. We simply think its best left to the experts and better architects, whilst we go about doing our own thing.

My work reference and philosophy is broadly deliberated here: designmatters
The official website has explorations of many projects we engage the environmental issues where the Client lends ear, but we do tread on many different levels of interpretation of the green agenda. Our BOH Project is one such attempt and exploration.
