Somia Design Studio was founded in 2012 by Widiadnyana on a deep understanding of the environment and that of the Clients. In 2017 Ngurah Biantara joined Somia as a partner. Both Widi and Biantara graduated from Parahyangan Catholic University (UNPAR) in Bandung, Indonesia, with more than 20 years combined experience in architectural design. Prior to Somia, both Widi and Biantara had worked at PT Airmas Asri in Jakarta and in various offices in Singapore such as Surbana Jurong Pte Ltd, Andy Fisher Workshop, CPG Consultants, MKPL Architects Pte Ltd, Eco-Id Architects Pte Ltd, and Ong&Ong Pte Ltd.
Since its founding, Somia has grown and is more significantly acclaimed through its projects and publications.
Established as a design-oriented studio, the studio maintains its team in a limited size. Somia’s projects are typically concentrated in private residences, resorts, hotels, and other estate type commissions. A strong expression of materiality is present in our projects, stemming from a desire to research, innovate and adapt to its surrounding context and to the Client’s dream.
Based in Bali, Somia has ventured throughout Indonesia with projects in Jakarta, Lampung, Labuan Bajo, Lombok, Bali, and other parts of Indonesia.
At Somia, every day is never the same, and we love it.
We acknowledge that everyone is unique in their own ways, differentiating their needs with everyone else. Responding to the particular needs and characteristics of each of our customers, we approach every project to meet every exceptional necessity of every customer.
We believe the foundation of a great design is in the depth understanding of the business, the target customers, and the knoledge and appreciation of technology. Collaborating those three in our design will result in an innovation which is meaningful, feasible, and profitable.
We don't create a pretty design. We create a creative and imaginative design to be an innovation which delivers a design with great experiences. Thus, each design tells a story, where not only it is answering the design problems, but also overflowing the users with emotions.
