Traditional Balinese compound architecture is evident throughout, but most are contemporary structures that reinterpret old forms and materials in new and exciting ways. Glass and metal have replaced alang-alang and bamboo, but in some cases the old materials are referenced and used in new ways. The interiors are highlighted with a great selection of furniture/furnishings, artworks, sculptures, paintings and more from local designers and shops.
