Alexis Dornier

Tropical modernism meets german precision
Alexis Dornier hails from Germany, where he studied Architecture at the Berlin University of the arts. After working in New York for several years, he relocated to Bali and started his studio in Ubud in 2013. The studio now employs 20+ talented and devoted architects and designers, working both locally and internationally on a mixture of residential and commercial projects.

Inspiration and experience

Alexis Dornier has built a large array of residential projects of various scales and complexity across the Balinese landscape, showcasing the studio’s distinct architectonic style while responding to client and site criteria.

The architects and designers at the studio all get inspiration from its idyllic setting, in the tropical, forested hills of Ubud, They strive to explore new typologies, forms and structures while learning from the rich heritage and ‘know how’ embedded within the local vernacular architecture.

Design philosophy

Alexis Dornier combines and reformulates design methods for each architectural design task. Each task is its own case, its own matter, problem and affair. A set of rules form a logical and comprehensive design narrative that leads to efficiency and a strong expression of our built environment.

His design aesthetic mediates between elements of tropical modernism and industrial architecture with an underlying ambition for formal and tectonic innovation. This design aesthetic is realized through an iterative design process and careful selection of locally available natural materials, spatially composed to respond to the site and natural setting in which they are placed.

Sustainable design in Tampah Hills

The studio optimizes its designs in relation to the sun path and air flow specific to the site to limit the necessity of air con use and general energy consumption. In Tampah Hills, the studio has the opportunity to work with the beautiful Lombok setting to create residential projects which relate to bigger sustainable and environmentally conscious development project, ultimately developing and contributing to Lombok’s local community.
