Somia Design is founded in 2012 to be a Bali based boutique architecture studio. We are a bunch of young, creative, and talented people who are passionate with a great design. We love challenges to redefine space and form to create unique experiences. Here, every day is never the same, and we love it.
Established to be a design-oriented studio, the studio maintains its team in a limited number to produce an adequate design, where the idealistic principles in architecture are appreciated. Therefore, each design aims to meet the unique needs of every customer, subsequently causing us to fabricate a remarkable design, but at the same time is also responsible contextually for the nature, efficiently to the costs, and up to date with the technology.
The man of the house is a principal architect for a design studio, who wants to have an ideal house for his family and a small studio for his architecture office, while his wife is a pioneer in the user experience service field in Indonesia. The combination of both brings the design to a level, where it possesses a rare and incomparable space experience for each occupant.
To generate a consistent design language, three finishing material colors are chosen. For the accent, exposed red brick are selected, as it is a local product which occupies the natural character, as it is also one of the material that are regularly used in Bali traditional buildings. In contrast, the color black is also inserted to produce an elegant and masculine feel in the building. To balance out the combination of the brick and the black, cement exposed color is picked out to act as the neutral color balancer.
Furthermore, responding to the tropical climate condition, the building configuration embraces the modern contemporary architecture style. In which, the building configuration is simplified, by replacing the ornaments which are existed in traditional style to a carefully chosen building material selection, which simultaneously minimizes the budget for both construction and maintenance.
