ARCHITECTURE / DESIGN
Architect & Interior Designer: Melanie Hall
Luna2 studios blends contemporary comforts with a bold design inspired by great modernism of the past century, offering travelers to Bali a fresh and surprising mix of hotel and private studios, only a short stroll from the beach. Designed by owner Melanie Hall, Luna2 Studios is the second property in the Luna2 collection – named after the first spacecraft to land on the moon in the late 50’s – which began in 2007 with the opening of Luna2 Private Hotel.
Situated right in the heart of Seminyak, adjacent to its beachfront sister property, it is surrounded by some of the islands best wining, dining and nightlife. The sixties-inspired façade, covered in circular forms, is simple and devoid of fuss and hints at what to expect inside. The backdrop in the lobby is a Mondrian-inspired installation which sets the tone with its bright primary colors. This color palette is carried through to each of the studios, which are decorated in one of four accent colors – yellow, red, green and blue. Bright furnishings and accessories are combined with retro patterns and geometrical shapes in optic black and white, and walnut detailing create vibrant yet intimate spaces – launching the iconic artistic references into the present.
The 14 studios, ranging in size from 66 sqm to 80 sqm, all offer open-plan lounges and are equipped with no less than three flat-screened TV’s and DVD players. Bathrooms, with a screening system, are beautifully finished in colorful mosaics. Each room has a large balcony which overlooks the swimming pool where the playful color scheme continues, with color-blocked mosaics in the pool and matching day beds.
Trellised fencing provides privacy from the outside, while those seeking a respite from the sun can watch a movie in Lunaplex – a 16-seat cinema showing classics and new releases daily. The intimate Orbit restaurant, with just 30 seats, serves an all-day menu of innovative and fresh cuisine. From the restaurant, a spiral staircase leads down to Pop! Lounge Bar, an underground designer den open from noon until the early hours of the morning. Here deep reds, blues and purples, low ottomans and comfortable booths lend the space an understated decadence.
