Mandala the Oasis

Mandala the Oasis


Type:  Villa

Location:  Canggu

Status: Completed

Build area: 1460m2

Having successfully worked together with Mandala Places on the design and construction of Uluwatu Cliffhouse we were commissioned to design this unique villa located in Canggu, Bali. 

Whilst providing privacy from the neighbouring properties, the brutalist entry facade was designed to give the user an element of intrigue and surprise when passing through the entry threshold. Four identical guest rooms are elevated above the arrival walkway, which gives users entering the building the feeling of openness whilst also providing visual connection to the rice fields adjacent.

In the centre of the villa is its stand out feature – a large open air folly with sculptural openings that provide dynamic views to the surrounding context and that allow provide dramatic lighting changes throughout the day. Hanging above a still reflection pond is a frangipani tree thats suspended from the structure, seemingly defying gravity.

As you enter further into the villa the main guest areas open up with the main kitchen, dining, living and entertainment spaces. We also designed a spectacular 30m long infinity pool with sunken bar. The master suite sits on the upper level of this area which also features a sunken roof lounge and terrace. 

The villa interior was designed by the in-house team at Mandala with artwork commissioned by Jake Ross and x_y_o_k_i_i_x. The lighting design was by Studio Nimmersatt. Photography by Indra Wiras.
