As the nucleus of Further, rooms and suites take subtle cues from the layered approach of traditional Balinese architecture, inviting guests to cross the threshold into an interior world that’s both private and present to the elements. Suites are composed as the inverse of a typical room. A semi-open bathing area is situated between a permeable screen from the sleeping area, the heart of the space. Natural light, gentle breezes and tropical greenery filter into quiet interiors styled by Studio Wenden, whose considered design vernacular applies a restrained luxury that foregrounds provenance.
“Through its layout and footprint, Further relates to the multi-layered street activities of the village, which evolve and change on a seasonal basis. On the other hand, Through their manifestation and architecture however, the Further buildings speak to the spiritual fabric of the place, by engaging with the presence, materiality and regular geometry of the small temples that are found in the area. Such a relationship is supported by the character of muted monumentality that the hotel displays, generating a timeless and lasting quality.” – MORQ
