villa tantangan

bali-based firm word of mouth has completed the 'villa tantangan', a single family residence in a remote location of nyanyi beach 
on the western coast of bali, indonesia. bordered by the indian ocean and a river to the north, the 6,500 square meter property has views 
to a beach temple and distant volcanoes. its placement at an intersection of points of interest and the outdoors led to a masterplan 
of individual buildings arranged around a central courtyard. referred to as 'landscaped architecture', the design encourages dwellers 
to connect with nature and the built environment.
