Ananda House, designed by IBUKU for the Hornblow family, was featured in the May 2017 edition of Architectural Digest.
“Building this home has been a cultural and creative journey,” says David, who fostered close ties with the local craftsmen who worked on the house. He even waited an additional three weeks on the local Hindu priest’s advice to move into the finished home. Given its location just outside Ubud—a town known for healing powers, spectacular terraced rice paddies, and empyrean temples—perhaps it’s no surprise that discussion often takes on a spiritual dimension. “My father has always said that life requires projects, challenges, and dreams,” adds Amelia. “Ananda has captured all three.”
