INSIDE -2019-Sukyf & Architects

Architect Felipe Gonzalez Jimenez de la Espada from Sukyf Architecture & Art Dubai designed this landmark development to embrace the spirit of the place and its natural environment. The client’s vision was a modern home that seamlessly integrates with nature. This meant preserving trees, maintaining the undulating terrain, and preserving the streamflow.

The goal was to create a familiar, warm, and comfortable space with exquisite craftsmanship. Felipe states, “The plan needed to embody the essence of Bali, with a harmonious flow and balance, capturing the sunset over the paddies from every corner.” In July 2018, the project was completed, revealing a contemporary interpretation of Balinese architecture. The villa features expansive openings to enjoy the breathtaking views. A stunning 164-foot infinity swimming pool and inviting outdoor spaces enhance the property.

Spanning across 10,225.7 square feet, Hakuna Matata offers six bedrooms, each with an en suite toilet and bath. The villa includes a kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining and living areas, a poolside sunken lounge, and a cinema. Additional amenities comprise a private gym, a security outpost, and a spacious garage.
