The book



Title: BEDMaR & SHi The Bali Villas – Publisher: Thames & Hudson

Perched on the spectacular southwest coast of Bali sits Ernesto Bedmar’s long-awaited first project on the island that has so inspired his successful career, the exquisitely designed, award-winning villa, The Jiva Puri. Although highly contemporary in expression, the villas design is intrinsically linked to the built history of the island and shows a deep understanding of traditional Balinese architectural concepts and their relationship to the landscape. With a foreword by Darlene Smyth that puts The Jiva Puri into context, sumptuous photography by Albert Lim that takes the reader on a detailed tour of every pavilion, and comprehensive plans, elevations and details, this monograph gives a fully rounded view of a villa complex that has set new standards of subtle architectural brilliance on the island.
