Their next project is none other than the Kenderan Landscape Hotel in Bali. Located in one of the most secluded areas of the Ubud jungle, the building, which will be completed in April 2024, has been designed to “disappear” into the foliage of the dense surrounding vegetation.

A striking landscape, which thanks to a large window in each of the twenty suites of the property, offers itself to each resident. Suites are stacked on fifteen small towers, all clad in black steel plates and textured panels to subtly camouflage them in the trees.
