The plot of land where this particular resort stand was originally bought as an extension to the main site. This site extension was offered to Popo Danes client by a developer since it was deemed disadvantageous; it was located exactly at the edge of a hill and the access to the main thoroughfare was quite steep.
The plot itself was hard to design -having a length of 60 m and width of only 12 m. In addition to that, the area around Goa Gong, Bukit Jimbaran was rocky and barren. Popo Danes, however, saw the challenge in this narrow strip of land and advised the client to acquire it.
The uneven land contour was made into an integral part of the design. It made uneven number of floor in a single building: the front part of the building has four floors; the middle part has three floors; and the rear part has only two floors. The floors that stretch along the length of the plot, from front to back, are the two topmost floors. They are the reason why the house is nicknamed The Long House.Location: Tiara Nusa Estate, Goa Gong, Bukit Jimbaran-Bali, Indonesia Architect: Popo Danes Architect Project name: The Longhouse
