The Balinese people used to build a complete configuration of Balinese House at least on the land area of 3 ares / 300m2. Lately, facing the availability of an average land area of 1 are, is there still an opportunity to get the quality of the house as it used to be? is it possible to develop "Sanga Mandala" which has become the basic concept of Balinese House, in a vertical way?
Is there any connection between modern Balinese society that is getting more simple, with the former concept of "minimalist" architecture (such as: furnitureless, furniture as architectural structure, etc)?
Is "asta kosala-kosali" still able to be applied fully or party? Or will it be more efficient if we adapt the universal way? In its adaptation, there will be a reduction in achieving equilibrium.
