N-COMMUNITY in Bali by budi Pradono




In order to meet the requirements set out by the government, we have divided this area complex into many parts, each of which has a public space or a green open area comprising between 20% and 25% of the total land area.




Based on the idea of the concept that already exists in Bali, this master plan is being made with a general method for growth. A normal Balinese house is always built on land that is divided into nine parts. In the middle of the site is an empty area called a "zen space," which is the main place. All of the other rooms and buildings are set up in a way that makes sense in relation to it. These rooms include the dining room, bedroom, living room, and kitchen.


The special space we called “utamaning utama” that is frequently designated as a venue to worship at each corner on the north side or facing the sea is the corner section of the nine division. As a result, a family temple is typically established in this position.


How to think of ways to use Balinese ideas in modern city life by multiplying  the 9 divisions into several places and making that the direction of how the city is set up.



We highlight this vacant area in an urban environment, namely as a public space, as a significant component in the overall layout of the room in this master design that we have created. There are two primary concepts contained within this master plan: The first fundamental concept is organic space, in which the whole region is split up into eight sections. Where each segment has an organic public space that is of a size that is relatively vast (broad), and where the main street and all of these public spaces are connected to one another via the secondary street. Each big public area is connected to one or more smaller public spaces by a branch. 





The height of the building is being gradually reduced as it gets closer to the main road, and it is also being shorter overall, with the goal of making it so that people would feel comfortable strolling around it. 

While structures with multiple stories (up to a maximum of three levels) are located on the most distant boundary.



The primary structure is a pilotis, which gives the building legs and creates more open space on the bottom side of the building, particularly for public areas such as the conference room, as well as the dining room, and the fitness room. The purpose of this is also to ensure that the levels with the more private rooms are located higher up.



The atrium was the open central court surrounded by enclosed chambers. In Roman atriums contained an impluvium, a shallow basin sunken into the floor to collect rainfall from the roof. 

But in this proposal, I envision an atrium as a source of energy for the residents, an inner garden or forest, and a source of light distribution throughout the building.



Since water is employed as a heat penetration method, reflecting ponds are created in parts of the front side of the area in order to act as a cooler and as area markers. Therefore, there will be a reflecting pond that visitors will see as soon as they reach the neighbourhood.




1.   AMOEBA 

The fundamental form is analogous to that of an amoeba, with a void located in the midst of each amoeba. These atriums serve as a source of green energy for the structure, and they provide the impression to those who are within that they are outside. Additionally, it can act as a natural ventilation system.

This is for the apartment units, which are designed to be extremely simple and take the shape of boxes. The boxes are positioned in such a manner that each apartment unit has its own space for greenery as well as some privacy.



The plan is to create a "what if" scenario in which all of the individual housing units are merged together to form a single amoeba. This amoeba will then connect all of the individual apartment units to one another. Therefore, in terms of shape, this link creates numerous mountains that are connected to each other; the mountains in question contain gaps or atriums inside their confines. 

On the slope of the mountain crest, there is an area that has been made more open by installing a row of organic planter boxes, but overall, the area still retains the appearance of a mountain. After the formation of these mountains, this area will be able to be divided into the eight sections that were there previously.



This rectangular box was decided upon as the best form to use because it is both functional and simple. Therefore, the plan is to articulate the composition of the spatial needs into many portions of building clusters, where the composition produces dynamic public spaces. 


with irregular sites and curved main roads. One option is to create a formal grid composition by dividing the nine parts of each unit. similar to how Balinese culture does it; in this case, Then, the middle area as an empty public space then we connect it with the road corridor in the form of a ramp where other buildings are around it and are interrelated with one another.the mass composition would be a mass composition of squares that would respond to each other between the solid and the void 


Only in public buildings, such as co-working spaces, fitness, and yoga rooms, are rooms designed to have an oval layout with semi-open walls that have planter boxes installed as louvres to allow for cross ventilation.


A wooden louvre system has been installed on the roof of the entire building so that the available sunlight may be used as efficiently as possible for urban farming.






Eco-Friendly Building and Urbanism


We aim to get as much natural light into the buildings as possible and include as much cross ventilation as possible into each structure, so that the overall appearance of this area complex is similar to that of a village in Bali. The planning for this entire area was done using the concepts of green architecture and urbanism.


Walkable community

Each of these areas is designed to be easy to reach and with a green atmosphere everyone in the area will feel comfortable to be able to walk with a maximum target of 5 minutes only.



Material Approach

When it comes to the walls, we can use rammed-earth material as heat insulation, but you can also replace it with other local items such as bricks from Bali. In general, we use local resources by using local artisans for tasks such as roofing or planting.
