Home’s Design Similarity
If you are on vacation for the first time in Penglipuran village will surely be surprised to see that each resident’s house’s shape is almost identical. You can see the home’s similarity in the house gate, house roof, and house walls using bamboo—also, the main entrance gate’s width, which only fits one adult. In the Balinese community, this type of house entrance gate is called angkul-angkul.
The house shapes the same. Also, the division of each house layout is the same, such as the bedroom and kitchen. The gate wall paint used is not the wall paint that we usually know but uses clay-based color.
I do not know for sure that the purpose of each resident’s house is similar. In my personal opinion, it seems they want to build togetherness and maintain the concept of blending with nature. In October 2014, I took a vacation to Penglipuran village Bangli. I saw that some of the bedroom walls had changed using bricks. Whereas in the past, while on holiday here in 1998, all the room walls used bamboo.
Despite the change from bamboo walls to bricks, the concept of blending into nature is still rooted in the Penglipuran traditional village.
