Bio-architect Thilina Liyanage just revealed plans for the Bali Rock House – a rather elvish-looking conceptual beach house with pointed roofs that draw equal inspiration from Thai architecture styles as well as medieval imaginary ‘gnomish’ homes. The Bai Rock House features a multi-storeyed construction with an open living space on the lower floor, a terrace on the absolute top, and a rather quaint bedroom in between.
The Bali Rock House is a mixture of multiple styles, but it sticks true to Liyanage’s organic approach and sheer avoidance of straight lines and concrete as a construction material. While the Sri Lanka-based architect often relies on materials like bamboo and wood to bring his ideas to life, the Bali Rock House (as its name rather aptly suggests) sits on a sturdy set of rock arches. The rest of the house uses bamboo and wood, although the rock foundation captures the eyes with its dominating presence.

The Bali Rock House falls square within the term ‘glamping’, or glamorous camping. Its unique format allows it to be a private residence (a holiday home away from home) or even modular set of houses dotted across a coastline as a part of a luxury resort.
Liyanage made it fairly certain that the Bali Rock House isn’t the kind you could get any sort of work done in! The property is located on a beachside, with its own private entrance into the waters. The lower level has ample lounging areas (with a swing too), while upper level has a deck/balcony that emerges out of the bedroom. If you want a more elevated view of your surroundings, Liyanage even gave the rock house a terrace of its own, perfect for some evening-time yoga!
