There are different ways to deliver ideas, and architecture is one of the most creative and effective among them. The Bali-based architecture & planning company Artalenta expands the expressive potential of architecture by bringing together many disciplines and professionals from various fields. As a result of the team’s coordinated work, projects are emerging that garner recognition from the most demanding clients and industry experts. The high level of services provided by Artalenta has been once again confirmed by the fact that the company has become the winner of Luxury Lifestyle Awards‘s The Best Luxury Architect and Interior Design Studio in Indonesia.
Artalenta was founded in 2004 by Indonesian architect and project director Uira. His design principle is the same as the national motto of Indonesia: Bhinneka Tunggal Ika (“Unity in Diversity”). This is a concept of a balance between wholeness and difference, implying the diversity of design styles and the outer diversity as part of what holds people’s cultural unity.
Uira and his studio skilfully connect design, architecture, interior works, and construction of buildings. The team collaborates with experts from the fields of design, engineering, manufacturing. It leads to the effective integration of their experience and skills to follow a single method of project delivery process and provide the client with the benefits of one-stop shopping.
Placing quality and client’s desires at the center of the work, Artalenta offers comprehensive solutions to fit for purpose. Each architectural detail and object of interior created by the team addresses the mood and forms the needed ambience. Client centric to Artalenta’s general capabilities to detailing, the implementation of proper finishing materials, lighting, artwork, furniture and equipment sets the tone to every project.
One of the most accented elements in Artalenta’s signatures of work is material detailing. For instance, engineered and solid wood for surfaces, ceiling, windows, doors, furniture, and artwork embody the project’s craftsmanship and the authenticity of this natural material. Bronze and copper lets designers enhance the material’s beauty, recreate the luxurious patina, and apply it to ornaments, panels, and other exterior and interior elements highlighting the richness of ambience. Tiles provide a huge range of styles and unique designs, while stone turns into a great floor finish.
The top-quality thermally isolated aluminium profile systems employed by Artalenta for elegant weather-resistant doors and windows, with addition of aluminium skin for cladding and roofing was commended by Luxury Lifestyle Awards. Every material is unique, and the passionate professionals at Artalenta effectively use its characteristics in creating an inspirational visual effect, contributing to the excellent design and sense of space.
The beautiful and calm summer house 131 Cove Drive in Singapore is a perfect example of the luxury property which provides a sensation of living by the beach, further illustrating Artalenta’s approach to architecture and design. Uira and his company created a sense of home, tranquility, and relaxation by means of architectural, interior, and landscape designs. The building is dominated by white, harmoniously blended with blueness of the swimming pool and greenery of the garden.
The outer walls of the house is clad in vertical lines of white aluminium cladding; the building is equipped with symmetrical windows, wooden doors, and wooden stairs with copper accents. The structure of the building combines steel, concrete, and aluminium. The interior is enhanced with metal elements made of copper, bronze, and gold with combination of fabrics, wallpapers, leather and art paint collection.
While working on 131 Cove Drive, Artalenta drew inspiration from art galleries and implemented the artistic messages into various details within this house. Each room and space of the house has its own story and function, and this balance between spaces reflects the diversity in the owner’s family lifestyles. Just like any other Artalenta project, this property is an elegant combination of science, technology, cultural value, professionalism, and creativeness of the designers’ team.
