Samma Studio is an architecture and interior design practice that specializes in commercial and hospitality projects. Based in Bali, our studio is known for our distinctive tropical contemporary design.
Formerly known as Studio Tropis, our design practice has recently undergone a major transformation since being established in 2017. Through this change, we aim to align the image of our practice better with our values. Inspired by the collaborative process we share with our clients, we are now known as Samma Studio. The new name was derived from the Sanskrit words samma, meaning harmonious, and samasana, meaning collaboration. The word is also a homophone of the Indonesian word sama, which means equal.
Our practice puts primary focus in designing villas, hotels, resorts, as well as cafes, restaurants, and bars. Despite our commitment in the hospitality industry, we are open to branching out into other sectors. You can browse through our work here.
Our team’s extensive experience in managing costs and project timelines would ensure that clients always meet their targets and timelines. Above all, we value feedback. After all, at the root of our work is the vision of our clients, and we pride ourselves in our ability to bring them to life.
