The Chameleon Villa is a residence that is living up to its name as it seamlessly blends into its forested surroundings in Bali thanks to its naturally beautiful lush green roof. Chameleon Villa sits on an acre of densely forested land with steep and challenging terrain. It was designed by international architecture practice Word of Mouth House.

The 11,000 square feet contemporary home deftly hides its bulk with landscaped roofs which enhance natural cooling and purifying the air naturally. The roofs have rainwater collection and recycling systems and solar panels installed.

To blend the building into the site as much as possible, the designers at Word of Mouth House crafted the home as a cluster of volumes that step down the slope and are carefully positioned to follow the original contour lines and to optimize views of the river below and the forest beyond.

The Chameleon Villa further blends into the landscape because it is a natural materials palette – made with locally sourced elements like teak wood, iron wood and natural stone.

“We worked on the idea of ‘landscaped architecture’ by blurring the boundaries between natural and built environments,” explained the firm. “As a result, the buildings appear to be a part of the land itself sometimes disappearing within it, and then at other times, emerging from it.

Balinese architecture was incorporated in the design of Chameleon Villa. The different pavilions accommodate different functions and all communal spaces are kept open towards the elements whereas the bedrooms and other more private spaces such as office, gym and media room are close-able volumes.”

The vibrant green roofed Chameleon villa has sustainable features such as clean energy through solar panels. The rain water collected can be recycled by residents for use in garden irrigation. This is a serene environment for you to chill out and enjoy the peace of nature.#Rewordit
