Publisher Comments:

In a world without walls: Balinese homes in harmony with nature.

Loved by travelers for its lush, tropical scenery, and charming people, Bali is considered to be one of the most magnificent places on earth. Spirituality and nature are integral parts of everyday life for the Balinese, so one can easily see why the island's traditional architecture has a peaceful presence to it, mimicking its surroundings and sometimes blending in with them. When it comes to Balinese houses, walls are not compulsory, wood is everywhere, earth tones are dominant, and thatched roofs abound. Opening onto gorgeous green landscapes, majestic mountains, or beautiful coastlines, the homes herein ooze relaxing, contemplative vibes. Gazing at these opulent examples of simple and elegant living, one wonders why more people aren't rushing to move to Bali...

Synopsis:

Bei Reisenden für seine üppige, tropische Landschaft und seine freundliche Bevölkerung verehrt, gilt Bali als eine der wundervollsten Orte der Welt. Spiritualität und Natur sind feste Bestandteile des Alltagslebens der Balinesen, weshalb die traditionelle Inselarchitektur die Umgebung einfängt und sich mit ihr vermischt. Neben Holz als natürlichen Baustoff und einer Bevorzugung erdiger Farbtöne sind es doch die teilweise fehlenden Wände, die in der Lebensphilosophie der Bewohner Balis ihre Entsprechung finden. Und der Blick auf wundervolle grüne Landschaften, majestätische Berge und herrliche Küsten versetzt jeden in eine entspannte, besinnliche Stimmung und man fragt sich, warum nicht mehr Menschen eilig nach Bali ziehen...
