Limasan Ellie

When Sami, Jonna and their daughter Ellie decided to experiment with leaving the corporate world, they came to Ubud first to try out their new simple lifestyle. We transformed a traditional Javanese limasan into a one-of-a-kind modern house for them. Leaving the cold climate of their native Finland they welcomed the idea of an open house. In a crucial design moment, Sami had to decide between a grass roof and a tile roof. He chose grass. The family’s home has an almost church-like quality. All panels were reclaimed from the original structure and all colors are original. The house is 2 bedrooms and one bath with a pool. 140 meters square.
