Located on Lombok, an island in West Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia, three amazing luxury villas stand poised, overlooking the waters edge. Designed by Alejandro Borrego, the builds each span between 400 and 450 square metres, with the sites ranging from 1,500 to 2,000 square metres. Glorious sea views wash past towering palm trees onto sweeping outdoor living spaces, and into rich wood toned interiors of impressive scale. Indonesian spice flavours the stylish interior designs of the residential homes, where clean modern furniture pieces meet with natural rustic accents and accessories. Wood clad walls climb behind crisp white upholstery and linens, whilst timber tidbits sprinkle authentic character.

A simplistic approach was taken for the interior design too, where a minimal colour palette is at play. Beige coloured cement from the soil of the site was employed to cover the house, giving it a local feel. | 33 |.
Another 400 square metre build on a 2,000 square metre site in Tampah Hills, located an hour from Lombok Airport. The exterior was designed using basic geometry, giving the home the look of a floating block, with a simple roof. Cantilevered on one side, the villa sits lightly on the land and faces out toward the ocean. | 31 |.
Upon studying the site, the designers became inspired by the red-ish brown colour of the soil that nurtured the surrounding plants. The earthy colour palette was adopted into the architecture and interior wall colour of the entire house, blending it with the habitat. | 21 |.
The largest furniture pieces are kept light against the dark and earthy walls, though an accent chair in the lounge blends with the wood tone in the room. A small floor lamp provides reading light by its side. | 22 |.
The dining area runs alongside the kitchen in a vast open plan room, and also adjoins with the outdoor living space. The house is designed to be comfortable and sustainable in its tropical climate; cross ventilation is achieved by keeping living spaces completely open with screens for shade. | 12 |.
A variety of kitchen pendant lights dangle above a large kitchen island, with modern kitchen bar stools. Traditional pottery items adorn the top of tall and rustic wooden cabinets along the back wall. | 13 |.
Mediterranean style interior design mixes with Indonesian flavour. A lively array of naturally bright cement, cream coloured marble and dark iron wood were sourced locally from Lombok and other parts of Indonesia. | 9 |.
First up is the largest of our three villas at 450 square metres, located on the smallest of the three sites at 1.500 square metres. The client brief requested a simplified Mediterranean architectural design be realised. In response, streamlined blocks were stacked to create the house’s modern shape. Outdoor furniture was kept low and sleek, and an outdoor conversation pit was sunk into the pool patio. | 1 |.
