Ibuku Studio has designed Lumi Shala in Bali, Indonesia.

Lumi Shala is the gathering, yoga, and meditation space at the Alchemy Yoga Center in Bali. Featuring natural materials with artisanal and innovative systems, its form promotes wellness.

Encircled by earth-rendered walls that offer a buttress for yoga practices, it has a comforting sense of enclosure.

"Five grid shell roof petals are arranged so that gradients of natural light wash across each convex interior, bringing the focus inward while illuminating a space that best helps us embody the yoga practice," said Ibuku Studio.

Bamboo arches soar overhead landing on mounded foundations, a balance that reflects the human form, simultaneously grounding and extending.

This project has been longlisted in the health and wellbeing project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
