Bamboo House: a Beautiful Green Village in Thailand

Green Village‘ is a community of ecological houses within the river valley landscape along Bali’s sacred Ayung River. It was created to blend naturally into the landscape without disrupting the surrounding beauty of the land. Each completed home is constructed out of bamboo and was designed based on principles of durability – with very few resources or attention a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years, and that house could stand strong for a lifetime. Each house has its own unique character, as the architects work hand-in-hand with the client to tailor the design to their specific needs. The dwellings are typically based around radially located clusters of thick bamboo columns, like tendrils that weave into the floor beams and eventually attach to the bamboo tile or thatch canopy. The readily available, malleable material property of bamboo makes it possible to create free-flowing sweeping forms that maintain their structural capacity and can be easily integrated into natural stone foundations. Living in one of these homes is like being on vacation every day of the year. [source]
