Blanco Studio, in collaboration with Kalpa Taru, designed and constructed Her, a raised dwelling that draws influence from Japanese aesthetics while incorporating Balinese elements. This unique space comprises an office, tea room, wooden bathroom and Japanese garden.

The entryway to Her features a Japanese-style door meticulously crafted from solid wood, much like the rest of the space. Upon entering, a stone pathway leads to the floating studio nestled within the serene Japanese garden, masterfully designed by Sebas Mesdag.

Conchita Blanco, the founder of Blanco Studio, approached the design process as a dialogue between materials and spaces, studying traditional joinery and architectural styles from both Japan and Indonesia. Her husband, Avalon Carpenter, the founder of Kalpa Taru, skillfully built Her using wood sourced from the remains of an ancient tree discovered along the banks of the Bengawan Solo River on the island of Java.
