Hosted by passionate architecture and design expert Charlie Luxton, Metropolis Balli features contributions from dynamic local designers and architects, including the King of Ubud’s son, Prince Jokorda Jed Rak Sukawati – the brain-child behind the opulent Royal Pita Maha Hotel.
Charlie uncovers the principles behind distinctive Balinese design and architecture, learning that there’s a spiritual context for everything created or built Bali. We learn how in recent times,Metropolis BaliBali has become a Mecca for architects from around the and how it epitomised fusion of eastern and western design principles, blending indoor and outdoor living seamlessly. It has become the benchmark for perfect tropical living.
Along the way, he interviews with local architect Popo Danes and Italian born architect Gianni Francione – architect of a number of stunning, high profile private homes on the island. We visit the Four Seasons in Ubud, the design of which is based on traditional Balinese rice terraces and theNusa Dua resort, voted best new hotel in the world by Conde Nast magazine.
Last off, Charlie meets Greek restaurateur Panos Bournias, owner of the stylish Nero Bali restaurant to talk about how Balinese style has changed in the 30 years he has lived on the island.
