When you combine the refreshing presence of vegetative environments and the stoic aesthetic of the industrial landscape, you get tropical brutalism. This is exactly the contemporary hybrid movement that architecture firm Patisandhika and designer Dan Mitchell reference when they conceive of this beautiful 512-square-meter house in Bali, Indonesia.
The home provides a rich haven that is doused in creativity. The heavy geometric presence of the concrete silhouette playfully juxtaposes itself to the occasional pop of vegetation. The structure accommodates living spaces, three bedrooms, an outdoor shower, bathrooms, as well as a music studio. While the multi-level layout ensures a playful dynamic, the tropical brutalism allows the home to be a point of interest in the surrounding narrative.
