Luke Home / Budi Pradono Architects
Luke Home in Uluwatu, Bali – This residence is located in a panoramic space close to the Uluwatu cliffs in Bali. This land offers a view of the huge ocean, the place we are able to observe the sundown each night. With comparatively rectangular land adjoining to a number of new villas. Architects have to be able to assembly the requirements of this household. The household is comprised of a pair from two completely different nations who worth Balinese tradition and nature. I felt the necessity to maximize the existence of a really particular website location on the south facet of Bali, the place the violent waves from the Indian Ocean crashing in opposition to the cliff edge have been very unique and mixed with the calm horizon the place the new solar abruptly descended and set into the ocean. step by step, it turned black. The soil within the area of Uluwatu consists primarily of rock and coral, making it easy to connect buildings to the rock, however acquiring clear water is extraordinarily troublesome.
Introducing the Balinese ethos – I visited the positioning a number of instances to substantiate the constructing’s orientation. Close to that location, a seashore membership is connected to the brink of a cliff, accommodating the violent waves of the ocean whereas this land is a number of meters increased. I performed a composition examine of the lots during which I tried to use the idea of Dewata Nawasanga or 9 heavens, particularly the principle universe or the 9 gods of wind course in order that the land was divided into 9 components and rotated primarily based on the perfect orientation and the world within the center was left empty; the swimming pool was then used because the datum. The entire composition of this mass composition was organized. On the northeast facet is a modest place of worship. I need the mass of this constructing to be composed of a number of mass containers in order that it seems extra trendy with out the usage of Balinese ornamentation, however on one facet of the west facet, the wall can be torn aside to let in an excessive amount of mild. There’s a area between the primary and second storeys in order that air can proceed to stream into the basement. We assemble a 3 cubic meter water reservoir to guarantee the provision of water. Alternatively, regardless of the constructing’s flat mass, now we have ready a number of places to soak up rainfall, retailer it, and course of it to be used.
Reply to post-pandemic residing situations – On the east facet, all rooms ought to obtain the morning solar, which accommodates vitamin D, and all home windows may be opened in order that we don’t must depend on the air conditioner always. The bathroom is designed to be massive sufficient to make us really feel as if we’re part of nature, permitting us to understand the pure surroundings, however potted vegetation are an integral a part of this design. Every hall will obtain enough daylight and airflow.
Programming and Architectural Design – The constructing’s structure and massing try and interpret the idea of Bali by making use of the division of the land into 9 main sections, i.e., by making use of the ideas of Tri Angga and Tri Mandala. So the yard or panorama employs the Tri Mandala, particularly the principle madhyama as a spot for ceremonies and therapeutic, and the second madhyama mandala as the principle residence of its inhabitants, which features a kitchen, eating space, and visitor bed room. Between the principle madhyama and the madya, there’s a vacant area or void that we interpret as an area for socializing between households, so it serves as a barbeque space. The ultimate idea is madhyama kanista, which was historically secure however is interpreted on this idea as a panorama that helps the entire and is positioned programmatically as an area for hobbies and recreation. Whereas the tri angga idea is a digital three-dimensional division vertically, particularly the principle angga or roof, the madhyama angga is a constructing consisting of pillars and partitions, and the kanista angga is the muse and water storage space, many of the basis is supported by pillars so that the majority the buildings dealing with the again are raised off the bottom.
The examine of constructing mass is performed with blocks of mass which are piled and organized to kind a composition of interrelated and mutually supporting constructing lots. Utilizing the mass of the swimming pool as a reference level, the 2 constructing lots above it comply with the course/orientation of the pool, apart from the mass of the constructing on the second flooring, which crosses to create area for a quieter space/meditation space. Within the northern portion, which is the therapeutic space, there’s a small temple for prayer in addition to an space for health or yoga. The mass of the constructing in entrance accommodates the service space, kitchen, and parking space. The courtyard, which is used for barbecuing, is within the center, adopted by the residing and eating areas and the visitor chamber. On the very best degree, there’s a penthouse, which is comprised of three chambers with corridors that maximize daylight. Between the primary and second flooring, there’s a mezzanine flooring with an leisure space for viewing motion pictures and a bar, which is supported by an outside space with views of the ocean or the sundown.
The constructing’s composition and its mass composition – Utilizing the programming-arrangement technique and controlling the constructing’s mass ends in a composition with a distorted courtyard within the middle that can be utilized for barbecuing. whereas the buildings stacked above it on the north have been composed of rows of rooms related by broad corridors. This hall can also be a gorgeous area with fixed entry to pure mild. The swimming facility extends westward into the ocean. It additionally serves as an organizer, orchestrating the composition of the whole constructing mass. The constructing bulk for the safety and health warehouses is separated to the north, despite the fact that all architectural components are intently associated. Exterior and inside components are comprised of porous stone, whereas concrete and teak wooden are used for the first doorways.
Materiality as a sustaining issue – Because of Uluwatu, Bali’s excessive local weather, many of the territory is dry rock. In order that the whole construction of the constructing is comprised of concrete/concrete materials, some parts of the rooftop are coated with pumice to soak up rainwater and deflect the solar’s warmth. A lot of the constructing exteriors are clad in pure stone that’s ample in Bali and easy to amass. Some cladding components make use of ironwood to take care of a resort-like look. The panorama makes use of the wild idea to accommodate the encircling pure situations in order that it seems extra pure, whereas different tropical vegetation are strategically positioned all through the constructing, akin to in corridors and loos, as accents but additionally as an indication and encouragement to get nearer to nature.
