The role entails extensive technical architectural knowledge the construction administration phase, managing the project team as well as coordinating with clients, consultants and contractors. 

The Journey

Over a 9 month period, in consultation with both stakeholders and many specialist consultants, the Intercontinental Canggu design was developed as the most advanced hotel in Bali with efficient operational planning, a captivating guest experience and places that would create memorable experiences that the Intercontinental hotels are famous.

Tough site constraints allowed limited build-able area, the question was how do we design 142 5 star rooms onto a site that may not have sea views.  The solution was to creating a village  atmosphere within the resort allowed greater use of the dense site.
