AA Ngurah Arya Putra Damar is the founder of PT Wismakarma Alam Karya or WAKBALI, a passionate construction company based in Sanur, Bali. Driven by inspirational design ideas and construction quality, Damar achieves the highest level of quality and sets a standard for finishing projects on time by providing highly skilled workers, meeting the requirements, and staying within the budget (always a good thing!) After finishing his architectural study in Udayana University, Damar started his career journey in Singapore working for Robert Greg Shand Architect, and who has become his architect idol ever since. Damar particularly admires Greg’s designs with an emphasis on the integration of the building space and nature, with a vision to create beautiful, unpretentious, and low maintenance sustainable architecture. Damar’s work can be seen in his personal Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/arya.damar.351 featuring Vin+ Bali, Villa Jeremy, Fat Gajah, Villa Ksatria, Puri Agung Pemecutan, and many others.
Villa Ksatria is one of his projects in Sanur, it is an eco-friendly house that uses solar panels to supply power for the entire household, energy-efficient lighting, a water conserving design, attic cooling system, and preservation of the old growth trees around the house. French drains were also designed to prevent ground and surface water from penetrating or damaging building foundations. Landscaping fabric wrapped around the perforated piping allows water to pass through while preventing weeds, dirt and other debris from clogging the holes. The pipe carries the water to a drainage area in the yard.
