The Bamboo Homes of Bali

In the green jungles of Bali, outside the town of Ubud, there’s a village of 18 homes constructed almost entirely out of bamboo. From a distance they look like jungle huts, but these are far from it. The Green Village combines high-end design and sustainable architecture.

Roll-down bamboo blinds and specially designed roofs help protect from rainstorms. Banana paper is used for interior walls and some aluminum for roofing, the rest is locally grown bamboo.

    We did a segment on Elora Hardy & Green Village earlier this year as part of our annual ‘By Design’ broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning [we featured Lloyd as part of the 2010 edition].
    Here’s a link to the video: http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/the-bamboo-homes-of-bali/
    The entire broadcast will re-air on August 24th. Check it out!

    Really beautiful! It’s great to see that now these projects are also set-up in other countries, in a variety of styles. I visited a project in Costa Rica totally in Balinese styles. This is the website of that company: http://www.balihomedesigns.com
