HAKUNA MATATA RESIDENCE BALI

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
