About House Aperture
The Three-Story Marvel: An Architectural Gem in Uluwatu, Bali
Crafted meticulously by hand, this 3-story tower boasts two bedrooms, a private garden, and an exquisite deck-pool ensemble.
Cliffside Grandeur Meets Tropical Bliss
Nestled on Uluwatu’s breathtaking western cliffside, it captures Bali’s essence. The top bedroom unveils panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Conversely, the middle floor serves dual purposes: it’s both a living space and a gateway to a secluded pool and lounge area. Encased in stone, the lower bedroom immerses guests in verdant tropical foliage.
Sustainable Materials Meet Modern Innovation
Constructors used recycled teak and ironwood, glass, steel, and local limestone. The façade features innovative, movable slatted screens. These screens not only shade from the intense tropical sunlight but also enhance the building’s aesthetics. With these large glass elements, the tower can open on all four sides.
A Nod to Surfing Legacy
Each room celebrates surfing culture with vintage black & white photos by Dick Hoole, a renowned surf photographer.
