Architecture and design practice Alexis Dornier, has completed House O, a modern two-storey home for a musician-composer in Bali, Indonesia. 

The design emerged from a desire to translate the construct of a single sound wave into an overarching architectural gesture that defines the interior and exterior qualities of the house.

At the rear of the house, the swimming pool and lower level of the home are connected to the upper level by a set of curved stairs.

Behind the living room area is the open plan dining area. The curved wood ceilings mimic the lines of the roof, with the designer explaining that it should feel ‘like being inside of an instrument’.

Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen. Glossy light colored countertops contrast the wood ceiling, floor, and accents, as well as the concrete wall.

The bedrooms are all located on the lower floor of the home, with this bedroom showcasing the curved wood ceiling. A sliding glass door opens the bedroom up to a private patio area.
