This project is the renovation and extension of a hotel located within Seminyak in Bali. Seminyak itself is very dynamic in character, combining many diverse Eastern and Western cultures and lifestyles to give the city its unique eclectic characteristic. Elements of both the traditional and modern architecture can be seen throughout the entire city and have equally inspired the design. Right from the initial stages of design, a cross-shaped design of the plan was developed to maximise the useable area, whilst ensuring that the external views were unobstructed by surrounding buildings. The architecture itself is designed to the proportions of the traditional Balinese pavilion, with its roof being seen from the front of the hotel. The heavy stone at the base of the project contrasts with the light wooden structure above. The character of the stone and wood-carvings are used to illustrate modernity, whilst preserving the essence of traditional Bali culture. Each of the patterns used are extracted from traditional Bali textiles, weaving the architecture together into an integrated whole from the entrances, canopies and beyond. Each space of the renovated and extended hotel is a mixture of old and new, blurring the demarcation between tradition and modernity, resulting in an eclectic piece of architecture that adds to the character and richness of the city of Seminyak.
