Bali Architect - Jeghier Architect - Villa Design

As an architect, my approach to design is a meticulous blend of creativity and functionality. Each project I undertake is an opportunity to craft spaces that not only reflect the aesthetic aspirations of my clients but also seamlessly integrate with the surrounding environment.
My design process begins with a thorough understanding of the client's vision, preferences, and the unique characteristics of the site. I believe that a successful design is not just visually appealing but also enhances the overall user experience. To achieve this, I engage in comprehensive research, considering elements such as natural light, spatial flow, and sustainability.
Collaboration is at the heart of my methodology. I work closely with clients to ensure that their needs and desires are not only heard but translated into tangible design elements. Through open communication, I strive to create spaces that resonate with the occupants on a personal level.
In addition to aesthetics, I prioritize functionality and efficiency in my designs. I believe that architecture should not only be visually striking but also enhance the daily lives of those who inhabit the spaces. Sustainability is a key consideration, and I incorporate eco-friendly practices and materials whenever possible.
Sketching and conceptualization play a pivotal role in my design process. I often begin with hand-drawn sketches to quickly capture ideas and explore various possibilities. These initial sketches serve as the foundation for more detailed digital renderings and ultimately guide the construction phase.
I find inspiration in the interplay of form, light, and materials. Whether it's a commercial villa, private residence, or a sprawling estate, my goal is to create spaces that leave a lasting impression while meeting the functional needs of the users.
In essence, my role as an architect goes beyond designing structures; it involves curating experiences and shaping environments that enhance the quality of life for those who interact with them.

The incorporation of local cultural identity in interior and architectural design is crucial as it emphasizes the distinctive features that set a building apart from others. However, in its implementation, modernity and current lifestyles are often seen as aspects conflicting with traditions rooted in local culture. Nevertheless, this doesn't mean that the two cannot be harmoniously collaborated.

After completing my studies and learning to become a professional architect, I had the opportunity to work with one of the architects from the Bali International line, Mr. Anang Karna Hernadijaya. He taught me many aspects of being a practicing architect, and one of the projects I got involved in was the Hotel Villa Lumbung in Petitenget in 2001. Through this project, I learned a great deal about the architecture of "Lumbung," a traditional Balinese building used for storing rice.

Let me briefly explain what a 'Lumbung' building is.
A Lumbung is a structure used for storing rice, typically found within the complex of traditional Balinese houses. The Lumbung consists of two floors; the upper floor serves as a storage space for rice, and the lower part is called 'bale,' used as a family resting area, a place for ceremonial preparations, or as a seating area or guest reception. When someone visits, especially Balinese people, the first place they go to is the Lumbung, as it is the most effective place for seeking shelter, and everyone knows that the Lumbung can neutralize negative energy. Generally, the layout of a Lumbung building is situated in the southeast direction of the 'natah umah lumbung,' typically rectangular with pillars made of wood, usually four or six in number. The foundation uses stones and is usually lower than the 'paon' or kitchen. Originally, Lumbung used materials such as thatched roofs, wooden pillars or saka made from kutat wood, and the structure was built using waru or jempinis wood, with seating made from seseh wood or other materials. Due to the development of time and the difficulty of obtaining the original materials, many Lumbung structures now use available materials such as tiled roofs, kamper wood for reng, and so on. In conclusion, the philosophy of Lumbung is a place for storing rice used by every Indonesian citizen with agricultural produce, and Lumbung buildings have undergone various changes in terms of materials and layout over time.

This was the first hotel that I designed in collaboration with architects Ir. Anang Karna Hernadijaya and David. The architectural team at the time was very excited to adopt the Lumbung form into an attractive and unique villa design.
