INSIDE -2019

Designed by architect Felipe Gonzalez Jimenez de la Espada of Sukyf Architecture & Art Dubai, it is a landmark development that embraces both the spirit of the place and its natural environment. The client wanted a home with a distinctly modern design and a propensity for incorporating the natural environment. This translates to a mandate that trees will not be cut, undulating terrain will not be flattened, and streamflow will remain unhampered. The built space should also generate the qualities  of a home – familiar, warm and comfortable – yet beautifully articulated. “We were informed from the beginning that the client wanted the plan to embrace the Balinese essences with a harmonic flow and balance, taking advantage of sunset over the paddies from every corner,” Felipe says. When the project was completed in July 2018, Felipe and his team unveiled a contemporary interpretation of the Balinese architectural style, with ample openings for enjoying the view. They also built a spectacular 164-foot infinity swimming pool and dotted the property with outdoor entertaining spaces. Hakuna Matata has an aggregate floor area  of 10,225.7 square feet. Each of the villa’s six bedrooms has an en suite toilet and bath. The facilities include a kitchen, outdoor and indoor dining and living areas, a sunken lounge by the pool, and a cinema. It also has private gym, security outpost and an ample garage
