Award-winning tropical modernism
The Principal of Gfab, Gary Fell, has had a long and very successful career since graduating from UCL’s prestigious Bartlett School of Architecture. He originally came to Bali to work on the Four Seasons Sayan in Ubud and then started Gfab in 1999.

Philosophy and experience

Gfab always seek to work directly with the site conditions provided, tailoring the spaces to the unique topography for each site. The studio often works with local, natural materials with some of their favorite materials being local stone and wood. Their designs frequently blur the distinction between inside and outside spaces to create a seamless flow between them, while maximizing the available views.

Gfab has a great experience with sloping sites similar to Tampah Hills. They have won many local, regional, and international awards for multiple residence projects such as Samujana on Koh Samui in Thailand, Istana Naithon in Phuket, Thailand, Ashok Nirvaan in India, and Bask, in our neighbor island Gili Meno.

Sustainable design in Tampah Hills

All of Gfab’s projects include sustainable design features. They have been utilizing the so-called “green roof” method for passive cooling for a long time. They also strive to use locally available materials to reduce carbon footprint and often incorporate solar and low energy MEP solutions.
