Carbon House is a modern villa with tropical and very interesting design located in Kecamatan Kuta Selatan subdistrict in Bali Indonesia. Designed and built by Alexis Dornier, it takes full advantage of its surroundings and natural landscape.
The villa has a total of 360 square meters of living space. It features four bedrooms and a range of bright and spacious common areas that open up and invite in to nature and vice versa. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors make the transition as seamless as possible, and the sculptural roof over the terrace makes it completely invisible. The choice of materials should also help the structure communicate harmoniously with its surroundings. It contains materials such as teak, more than a hundred years old, terrazzo, local limestone and reclaimed ironwood. The site offers a wonderful panoramic view, which is highlighted in a very pleasant way – through glass doors and windows and a breathtaking view from the terrace. Furnishings are mostly contemporary and modern, and are very neutral so as not to distract attention from the view and surroundings.
A significant detail in the overall design of the house is the roof with a unique structure. It sits flat over the interior, forming overhangs. On one side it seems to flow seamlessly into a huge triangular slab that hovers over part of the terrace and pool area. This is a unique idea that really sets the villa apart from all the other homes here. Impressive!
