Ubah Rumah Residency

Ubah Rumah Residency is an artist studio and research station on Nikoi, a stunning private island in Bintan. Derived from the Malay language, Ubah Rumah seeks to be a “Home of Change”, reflecting the nomadic culture of the Orang Laut from the Riau islands.

The Living Studio, a centrepiece of the project, will be activated by each resident during their stay through bespoke experiences for guests on the island.

Ubah Rumah Residency hosts artists and researchers from South East Asia whose work focuses on the intersection of art, ecology, and hospitality.
