Tranquil Luxury Villas “Blossom” on the Cliffs of Bali

Known for their unique, airy design aesthetic, Kengo Kuma and Associates is set to transform the cliffs of Bali with their new project. Light and breezy, the Tsubomi Villas are a set of six pavilions, a yoga studio, and a greenhouse projected for completion in 2018.

The design for this organic set of spaces reflects the meaning behind the project's title Tsubomi, which translates to “flower bud” in Japanese, as the villas seemingly unfurl from the forest floor. As a result, the open architecture transmits a calming sensation, matching perfectly with Bali's lush, exotic environment.

As a 215,000-square-foot project, the architects have the difficult task to improve upon the already breathtaking landscape. With the area overlooking Indonesia's southernmost coast, they've risen to the challenge with these luxurious timber and glass villas. By blurring the line between exterior and interior, architecture and landscape merge into the perfect oasis.

Kengo Kuma brings contemporary architecture to the cliffs of Bali.
