Bale Sembah Ulun - Sembalun
The concept of the Bale Sembahulun development villa adapts from the geological of Rinjani mountain area, which is the epicenter of the Lombok island earthquake. The design concept of the villa is an earthquake-resistant building using wood materials and a knock down system.
This knock down system keeps the building stable and avoids damage when exposed to high-scale earthquakes, as the wooden joints are not dead bonds. A natural stone foundation is used for this type of house with a hanging system that follows the movement of the ground.
The mountainous geography of Rinjani inspired us to use wood materials that are warm in nature rather than other materials such as bricks, cement, or ceramics. The choice of tropical roof formation was also an adaptation of the geography of the surrounding mountains that we picked up as a mass composition to integrate the villa with nature. In addition, we maximize the orientation of the Bale Sembahulun villa building to three directions of view to the natural nuances in the form of rice fields and hills. Based on the tourist market study, Rinjani Mountain is a tourist destination for all ages, thus the Klare Aksa team designed four buildings based on user capacity, namely the main building for family groups and three cottage buildings, which are private bedrooms with an area that can accommodate 2-3 people. Public facilities such as an open-air lounge with a fire pit, swimming pool, and bar are located at the center of the villa for easy access.
The interior of the villa with wooden nuances on floors, walls, and ceilings enhances the warm ambiance inside. The application of krepyak window formations or jalousie models to vents and windows, allows users to regulate the intensity of natural light and air required.
