For twenty years, Ross Franklin has been considered one of the most influential of architects in Bali. He has specialized in designing unique and site specific individually tailored houses. From small cottages to large private estates and boutique villa hotels.
His work has been a notable attempt to merge the dreams of his expatriate clients into forms that meld harmoniously with the surrounding environments, in a clean practical manner. A keen sense of ergonomics has always informed his designs, even in the most romantic of projects.
His tendency to create a spare clean tropical architecture that still maintains the local character was a forerunner of the minimalist style that has become the norm for contemporary Bali Modern Style.
