The biophilic architecture design prioritizes integrating natural elements into the building. Fostering a harmonious connection between humans and nature and promoting well-being for its occupants. To implement the biopic design of the villa, here are some ways to follow

  1. Maximize Natural Light: The large window placement in the villa could enhance the open and natural accent of the villa since the natural light will get into the villa easily. Consider placing the windows in floor-to-ceiling position to bring on the light
  2. Use Natural Materials: Use wood, stone, bamboo, and other natural materials for flooring, walls, and furniture. These elements add warmth, texture, and a sense of connection to the natural world.
  3. Bring in the greenery: Brighten up the villa by bringing natural elements such as flowers, and indoor plants. Strategically placed greenery can purify the air and give new air to the villa, reduce stress, and create a calming ambiance.
  4. Earthy Color Palette: Embrace the natural atmosphere by implementing earthy tones like green, brown, and beige throughout the villa to add a serene atmosphere.


2.  Locally Rooted: Embrace the Traditional Architecture


While aiming to build a modern yet sustainable villa, implementing traditional architecture with a mixture of modern design. Traditional architectural elements like exposed wooden beams and a pitched roofline, are seamlessly integrated with modern design features such as expansive glass walls, clean lines, and open floor plans. This fusion will create a unique space that celebrates the Balinese culture while offering a modern living experience that fosters a connection with nature. This design will breathe fresh air into the villa design in Bali, promote the culture, and elevate Balinese or Indonesian traditional architecture globally.

In Balinese traditional house design, there is a guidance called Tri Hata Karana, which is a principle to ensure the house blends perfectly with nature and humans. The responsive building adapts to the natural environment to cater to the relationship between nature and humans, where the structure seamlessly blends with its surroundings to optimize its performance and sustainability. 

Through innovative designs such as natural ventilation systems, and solar heating, architects can create innovative building designs to respond to natural conditions such as weather changes, air quality, and UV levels.  

The responsive design is designed for the occupant to feel comfortable at home and to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by collaborating with natural aspects. 


4. Green Architecture: Towards Sustainable Design


Aside from biophilic design, green architecture can be implemented in the sustainable villa design. Green architecture, also known as sustainable architecture advocates sustainability energy, energy conservation, and the reuse of safe building materials such as bamboo, and recycled steel to reduce waste. Focus on using eco-friendly materials and maximizing energy efficiency, and renewable energy sources with the consideration of its effect on the environment. 

By implementing these sustainable architectural designs, you can build a villa that is not only aesthetically pleasing. It becomes an environmentally friendly, sustainable, functional space that promotes well-being. Together, these design choices positively impact the environment by minimizing waste, fostering harmony with nature through thoughtful design, and contributing to the preservation of local culture.
