Katamama is a hotel in Bali that was designed to live up to its localities. The tropical climate plays a pivotal part for the architecture of Katamama. The design was a contemporary take on the traditional Balinese culture, a local boutique hotel made by local artisans. Overall, there are 1,5 million pieces of handmade Tabanan bricks that builds up the whole building. The design of Katamama was a response to The Potato Head Beach Club, which was built first. It was an attempt to counterbalance the curvy, elastic shape and colorful texture of the beach club, with a more rigid shape and monolithic texture with this new addition to the complex. This is done in order to create a contrast nuance, to enrich the spatial experience within the complex.
