[Bali has long been a creative inspiration for the world—providing exciting new design ideas that are emulated today in homes and hotels around the globe.] The open to the elements bathroom with interior courtyard garden, the giant bamboo sofa with handwoven cushion covers, and the garden pavilion or balé with raised platform seating are all examples of concepts that originated on the island. All these—and much more—may be viewed in [Bali By Design provides coverage of the latest and best design work in Bali today. Featuring 25 stunning contemporary homes, it showcases the ideas of a new generation of talented international and Indonesian designers.] Each of these extraordinary houses presents new solutions for age-old challenges—illustrating how stylish modern lifestyles may be achieved through clever architecture and interior design. See the selection of artful furniture and furnishings in open, airy rooms, the inclusion of natural stone in shady courtyards and swimming pools, and the plethora of handcrafted surfaces, objects and artifacts. [Many of these houses explore ways of reducing power consumption for a more sustainable, low-carbon future. Others present a modern urban version of the tropical Bali design style that has its roots in a traditional rural environment. All, however, combine modern technology with exotic local materials—Balinese sandstone, volcanic rock, recycled ulin wood—for breezy indoor-outdoor living. With over 300 stunning photographs by Danish photographer Jacob Termansen and an insightful text by British author Kim Inglis, this book is a fitting testament to the originality and talent of Bali’s design world.]

With rich photography and insightful commentary, this Thai architecture and interior design book showcases some of the finest modern masterpieces in Southeast Asia. A tremendous body of sophisticated and sensitively designed architectural work has been produced in Thailand in the first decade of the 21st century. The 25 houses in The Modern Thai House illustrate the radical new ideas coming from a dynamic younger generation of architects who are producing work comparable with and sometimes even surpassing the very best architecture in the world. Most of these architects were trained in the U.S. or U.K. and reflect not only American and European sensibilities but also affinities with their contemporaries in Asia —including Japan, China, Singapore, and Bali—all hotbeds for innovation in modern design. The houses in this book are readily accessible from Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiangmai. They reflect a wide variety of concerns and solutions, such as: sustainability; responses to climate; strategies for cooling with minimal electricity; and openness versus security in a large metropolis. Nurtured by an increasingly knowledgeable and wealthy clientele, modern architecture in Thailand is emerging with a variety of innovative architectural expressions.

For the Balinese, everything has its correct place in the world, with the gods on high, malevolent spirits in the lowest regions, and mankind sandwiched between the two. This cosmological framework influences not only the domestic architecture of the Balinese but also their palaces and pavilions-and the myriad of temples which are scattered throughout the island. Rank and social status, the needs of the village and of the extended family, and the tropical climate also play a part. This book is intended to provide the visitor to Bali with a step-by-step guide to the complexities of Balinese domestic and religious architecture. The Balinese belief system, rituals associated with building, building materials and construction techniques, and the intricate ornamentation of buildings are among the topics covered. Watercolor illustrations of panoramas, important sites, building types, design concepts, and construction techniques complement a concise, informative text and help to elucidate the meaning of many of the places that visitors will see during a stay on the island.

Includes 39 photographs taken by the author during his time in Bali. A young American composer, quite by accident, heard some gramophone records of Balinese gamelan music that were to change his life completely. Such was his fascination that he ‘wanted to hear every gamelan in the countryside’. This book is an account of his stay in Bali just before the Pacific War. A House in Bali merits republication because of its sympathetic and often amusing account of the author’s involvement in Balinese society. While the author’s musical interests take up a considerable part of the narrative, music was itself such an integral part of Balinese life that the reader gets an overall impression of life on the island. Much has been written on the art of Bali and by artists but this is the only narrative by a musician and stands in its own right as a worthwhile period piece.
