巴厘岛的精髓在于不同文化之间的碰撞。然而，遍布岛上的各类度假酒店和热带景点强调为客人带来奢华享受，却往往与当地人的生活脱节。Potato Head Studios坐落在塞米亚克为数不多未被占用的海滩区域之一，对典型的度假酒店模式提出了挑战：“排他”的概念被彻底抛弃，度假酒店被重新构想为当地社区的一部分。
While the essence of Bali lies in interaction between different cultures, the ubiquitous resort typology currently in Bali and other tropical destinations paradoxically emphasises hotel guests’ exclusive enjoyment, detached from the life of the local community. Located on one of the last remaining unoccupied beach front sites in Seminyak, the Potato Head Studios challenges the typical resort typology: the notion of “exclusivity” is abandoned; the resort is reconsidered as a part of the local community.

Potato Head Studios是坐落在Desa Potato Head（desa在印尼语中意为村庄）的三座建筑之一一另外两座分别是海滩俱乐部和酒店。它是一个向公众开放的度假胜地：除了私人客房和设施外，还提供公共空间。由底层架空柱支撑的“漂浮”环状体量容纳了客房和包括展览空间和宽阔落日酒吧在内的各类设施，使得酒店的首层空间成为与海滩相连的文化活动场所和开放的平台。同样，这里也是整个度假酒店的核心所在：灵活的舞台可用于举办各类节日庆典、文化活动和日常的休闲活动，使每个人都能亲身体验巴厘岛文化。

One of the three buildings of Desa Potato Head—a village (desa being the Indonesian translation of village) that includes a beach club and two hotels—the Potato Head Studios is a resort open to the public: it offers private guestrooms and facilities, and public spaces. A floating ring lifted by pilotis accommodates the guestrooms and other functions, including an exhibition space and a large sunset bar. This configuration has resulted in a cultural ground plane, or an open platform, which leads to the beach. The open platform is the centerpiece of the resort—a flexible stage for a range of programs such as festival celebrations, cultural events, and day-to-day leisure activities that welcomes everyone to experience Balinese culture.

The roof top—conceived as a public space and a sculptural park—is accessible through a public route that winds up the floating complex, which connects amenity spaces including restaurants, pools, and spas.

Potato Head Studios的设计充分考量了印度尼西亚的背景。首层的开放平台和三层的私人花园使人联想到印度尼西亚高高架起的庭院。此外，还能在首层找到传统巴厘岛风格的庭院。
The Potato Head Studios was designed with the Indonesian context in mind. The open platform at the ground level and a private garden on the second floor evoke both the raised courtyards in Indonesia, and traditional Balinese courtyards found at the ground level.

Potato Head Studios是一个开放的、非私人的度假胜地。它为社区提供了一个全新的空间，不论你是酒店来宾还是普通游客，都可以在其中感受巴厘岛文化，并同时成为这种文化的缔造者。
The Potato Head Studios is a resort for open engagement rather than private consumption. It is a new space for the community where visitors of all kinds—hotel guests and the general public—experience contemporary Balinese culture, while making it.
