A spacious Balinese retreat built from a decommissioned bridge in Borneo | CNA Luxury
Surrounded by verdant greenery and overlooking a river, Rumah Hujan, which means House of Rain, is located north of the main town of Ubud on the edge of the Tjampuhan ridge. Architect Maximilian Jencquel took special care to ensure the house would meld seamlessly with the surroundings and that the land would remain undisturbed. Most importantly, he engaged the help of an American carpenter to learn how to use the reclaimed wood from the decommissioned bridge to build a home. To successfully execute the project, Jencquel teamed up with a group of experienced Balinese woodworkers, whose skills he still relies on today.
