I have always been fascinated by Bali’s bamboo architecture, its beauty, and sustainability are undeniable. It folds into the landscape completely uninterrupting the natural beauty of the landscape. Even the breeze moves freely through it offering a healthy lifestyle to all that inhabit it.
The Green School is a school without walls, located in Bali, Indonesia. Another beautiful example of Bali’s bamboo architecture that is perfect for a learning environment. It is healthy for the children and inspires a love of nature by placing them in it. Unlike other schools that box children inside. I can not think of a more enhancing educational experience.
The Tower House at Green Village is a four-story home supported by bamboo poles that travel from the foundation up to the top story. The poles are fastened together to form a basket-like central column. Bali’s bamboo architecture has an intricate beauty that is seen from the inside as well as the outside.
A beautiful bamboo bedroom with views to match. Bali’s bamboo architecture is completely sustainable, including the furniture. Because it’s all from Mother Nature the color palettes flow beautifully as it does in the jungle it resides in.
Perhaps green design will become more prevalent in other parts of the world because of the beautiful example that Bali has demonstrated by using sustainable materials from the region to build homes and buildings.
