Terracotta House is a modest and homely 3 bed holiday villa located in the heart of Uluwatu, catering for surfers visiting the area for its famous surf breaks.

Celebrating an angular pitched roof, the one storey architecture was designed with consideration to not overwhelm its neighbours. It appears as a low-lying gentle slope from the exterior, while by contrast plays with ceiling angles inside, to allow the villa to feel more open & spacious and peak in height at the social heart of the house.

The residential villa caters for visitors who want enjoy their day by the poolside with space to sunbathe and cool off.

The L-shape layout makes it easy to interact or disconnect in any area with two spacious master bedrooms and a third smaller bedroom – adaptable for children or visiting guests to stay. An inviting pool playfully connects direct to the primary bedroom, allowing kids to play safely while observed from the comfort of the bed or main lounge.

Materials include an earthy & cool underfoot feeling, generated by a local clay terracotta floor that softens the house, complimented by grey pastel tone cement render walls, koral sikat pool and pebble pool-deck. A warm teak wood ceiling creates an intimate feeling in the bedrooms and helps extend the indoor and outdoor space with a seamless connection.

Layout: The economically considered footprint features an open plan living, dining & kitchen with a full glass facade for maximum garden and pool views, a primary master bedroom with access direct to the pool with en-suite and sunken bath, guest toilet, entrance and parking area, small bedroom with large sliding door for option of privacy, a shared en-suite dividing sound, with the second large master bedroom at the end with pool and garden view.
