A home is much more than a place to live with walls around you and a roof over your head. When dedicated talents and passionate professionals take on the challenge of creating a home, the result is a masterpiece of architecture and design that embodies exquisite ideas and has high aesthetic value. Artalenta creates homes that become part of the personality of their clients, reflecting their character through a perfectly chosen set of factors. Artalenta’s unique approach and commitment to excellence in the industry made it the second consecutive year of multi-award winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the categories of Best Luxury Interior Design Studio, Best Luxury Architect Studio, and Best Luxury Architecture (Single Residential Project) for Casa Saba in Indonesia.
Artalenta is a Bali-based architectural firm that has brought together a team of professionals of different specialties to develop architecture and interior design projects with a strong creative touch. The company was founded in 2004 by Uira, an Indonesian Architect and Project Director. Under his leadership, specialists from various fields work on the common goal of providing high-end services for architectural, interior design, and landscape projects in accordance with the highest criteria of quality and aesthetics.
The Artalenta team uses all available opportunities and tools to provide the client with a comfortable and inspiring space, which is in harmony with their character and lifestyle. Using advanced technological solutions, their years of experience in various disciplines, the company’s specialists find the perfect concept and idea and implement them in the form of a visual presentation. To this end, they lead, manage, and organize projects on behalf of clients.
“To be recognized as the winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards for the second year in a row is a very important accomplishment for the entire Artalenta team. We are very proud of each of our projects, and we are happy that they not only bring joy to homeowners but also receive recognition from industry experts,” said Uira, founder of Artalenta.
The award-winning project Casa Saba embodies the key principles of Artalenta. This premium property is designed as an organic part of the client’s lifestyle. Its interior and exterior spaces not only tell stories through subtle combinations of shapes, colors, and various details but also create a perfect harmony with the surrounding environment.
This private residence was designed to take inspiration from the surrounding landscape; white-beige of the sand, earthy brown from the fertile Balinese soil, verdant greeneries and the blue seas which the property overlooks.
Designed by Artalenta, this summer house is designed for the client to host family and friends. The residence would house up to 12 people, while the dining room could seat 18. The client loved nature so a pool and vast outdoor area were upmost important.
The site is located at the end of a paved pathway through the unspoiled green of Southeast coast of Bali. The site has an abandoned existing building which was taken down for the project. Artalenta’s challenge was to use the most durable building materials to endure the seaside climate.
The resident aims towards a resort feel that highlights material characters and modern form. Cubic volumes are elongated and perforated into a continuous structure that is united by roof and wall cladding’s graphic elements.
Artalenta brought nature into the structure through the colour scheme and use of local materials. A low-lying cantilevered flat roof floats on the structure and weaves it into the coastal landscape.
