Bandido Bali – La Lourdes & La Matilde Villas / Javi Diaz

 

The project consists of two houses that are part of the Bandido Bali complex. “We wanted to create a unique experience of design, communication, culture, and architecture.” I believe that today, we live, work, and even have fun in squared, dull, rigid boxes with little connection to nature. The main mission of the architectural project was to create an alternative and break away from the conventional box of our daily life.

Discover Javi Diaz’s Journey and Unique Architectural Project in Bali

 

Architecture is a lifelong journey in constant evolution, where passion, learnings, collaboration and the unexpected shape your career. In the inspiring context of Bali we meet Javi Diaz, Spanish architect who has been on such a journey, that took him from Spain to Portugal, Brazil, Fiji and then Indonesia, where he has developed the unique Bandido Bali project – an architectural destination embedded into the lush nature of Bali, and connected with its culture.

Book: Bamboo Ark 1

 

Bamboo Ark brings together a collection of contemporary bamboo buildings from across the world. These buildings have been selected to showcase their particular design based on location, built form and structure. Bamboo is a re-emerging material and there are limited design and technical books for bamboo when we compare it to other established materials such as timber, steel and concrete. Delivered from the perspective of an architect who has immersed, designed, built and lived in bamboo buildings, this book provides a how-to reference on bamboo architecture to further promote the use of bamboo in design and construction.
 

Better Bamboo Buildings

Book: Bamboo Ark 1

 

Bamboo Ark 1: Exemplary Bamboo Buildings’ is Ewe Jin Low’s first book and it features a collection of 30 contemporary bamboo buildings in various countries from South America to South-East Asia.

It was published in June 2022 and formally launched at the Godown, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 21 August 2022.

Architecture with Bamboo

 

Architecture involving and consisting of bamboo as a building material has developed into one of the most fascinating and dynamic areas of global building culture. The giant grass is found on all continents and, as the fastest-growing plant species, is in basically infinite supply. The unique material properties combining extreme hardness with low weight, strong compressive and tensile strength, and elasticity significantly contribute to this trend.

A Vernacular Paradise in Bali.

Ulaman Wellness Retreat, a carbon zero-project, is created with locally available materials and built by workmen from the vicinity of Kaba Kaba, Bali, Indonesia.

ARCH DAILY

Ulaman Retreat / Inspiral Architecture and Design Studios.

Text description provided by the architects. Located inland in Bali, this wellness retreat has been integrated into a forest that borders luscious rice fields on one side and a dramatic river on the other. The river converges water from the whole area creating a junction of small waterfalls that produces enough flow to power a hydro electric generator that can sustain the power of the buildings within the complex. Merging with nature has been at the forefront in the approach to the design, not just by its operation but by using materials found directly on the site and the immediate locality, therefore enabling the resort to become fully carbon zero.

BAMBOO ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNS THAT PROVE WHY THIS MATERIAL IS THE FUTURE OF MODERN AND SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE!

In a world where everyone is moving toward’s sustainability, architects are also building their structures with materials that are sensitive and kind to nature. One such sustainable option is bamboo! ! Bamboo is being used to create beautiful and majestic structures, that are green and respect their surrounding environment. It is imperative to build homes, resorts, offices and etc that are in harmony with the natural environment around them.

Ulaman

One of the things I love most about Bali is the amazing places that exist only here on the island. Whatever your fancy, you can create it! And, as a visitor, you can stay in places that almost straight out of children’s books. Fairy tales that seemed impossible, but that someone actually dreamt of and made into reality.

Ulaman feels like a fairy tale. A small boutique hotel with its own private waterfall to swim in.

From Ubud, drive north for about 30 minutes and head straight through several local villages. Pass no less than 20 women balancing baskets on their heads and a babies on their hips. Make a wrong turn or two down a hilly road, and then enter the jungle where you’ll stumble upon TheNYX — a newish eco-village and artist-in-residency villa set amid lush rice paddies and forests in the middle-of-nowhere Bali.

Bamboo, a new source of strength in construction industry.

I think everyone in this world knows about Bamboo specie. It is a type of grass that is found mainly in countries in the Southeast Asian region. It resembles wood because it has elements and components that mimic the strength and durability of wood. It is also widely used in furniture making and has made bamboo one of the cheapest option yet serves its purpose in terms of work-ability, durability, and strength.

Asali Bali : pour en finir avec la cabane en bambou.

Ah, le bambou à Bali… Une histoire ancienne, indissociable des traditions balinaises, qui attire aujourd’hui des compétences nouvelles et extérieures à l’île dont La Gazette de Bali s’est fait l’écho à maintes reprises. Surfant sur la vague du vert, ce matériau naturel vit aujourd’hui sa deuxième vie, dans des bâtiments techniquement ambitieux, supposés durables et qui valorisent l’éthique de leurs propriétaires. Oui, le bambou porte avec lui des espoirs de lendemains meilleurs dans ce monde qui gaspille et détruit tout.
