The work of Alejandra Cisneros marks a significant departure from the tropical 'Bali-style' villa design popularised in the past two decades and is a refreshing antidote to the anodyne villas invading Bali's centuries-old rice terraces. In Seen | Unseen, Alej shares her insights on reimagining traditional homes for 21st-century lifestyles in today's fragile environments. She reveals the thinking behind her designs, and her heart-centred process of co-creation a "conspiracy of client, joglo, land, Balinese craftsmanship, and culture." She also acknowledges the influence of Tri Hita Karana, the Balinese concept of cosmological balance that governs their relationship with people, the environment and the Creator. This beautifully illustrated book focuses on her whimsical, exciting homes - fanciful yet practical, designed for potters and poets, artists and entrepreneurs alike hailing from North and South America, Europe and Asia. Crafted almost entirely from antique teakwood, traditional materials, and showcasing joyful design ideas, each home merges seamlessly with the landscape. Alej curates unique, mould-breaking homes that create a new way of living that is at one with nature in the tropics. Her canvas is the Bali landscape; her paints are Java's traditional teakwood joglos and Indonesia's myriad natural materials; her brushes are the Balinese craftspeople that bring her vision to reality.
