Situated on the northern coast of Bali, the Tiing is a boutique resort embedded into its local and cultural context.
Due to its remote location, the design deliberately leans on the local context, utilising traditional materials and construction techniques, while providing a robust conceptual framework; a rugged regionalism. Concrete and bamboo are abundant, so it was best to work with these materials throughout. Expressing the texture and form of the bamboo as a negative impression in the patina of the concrete becomes this project’s motif.
Architecturally, the walls act as funnels, giving each room equal and opposing view of the mountain and the ocean. We thought it vitally important to draw attention to this dual condition as part of a locating and grounding travel experience.
