InMLHS began a new project, moving from the cool climes of the Thekkady hills to below sea level in the Kerala backwaters near Alleppey. The inclusion of the houseboat cruise has become part and parcel of every travel itinerary focused on Kerala, and Xandari Riverscapes has achieved the highest rankings in the booming houseboat market. A dawn awash in pink and orange; verdant lands bearing rice, coconut and banana; ripples on Vembanad lake the only sound for miles; sightings of kingfishers and cormorants; seafood freshly harvested from the waters - Xandari Riverscapes has mastered the perfect backwater experience.
We are creating a new design vocabulary based on this one material and exploring the way sustainable architecture and design can redefine luxury. The materials we use, the people we work with, and the land we build on all inform our design process. The traditional skills of Balinese craftsmen, combined with our design ideas and modern engineering enable us to create original bamboo structures that meet the needs of a diverse clientele.
We do this by designing fully functional homes and furniture that are made of natural substances and built in ways that integrate with nature.
We give our projects detailed care and attention from start to finish, including bespoke interior furnishings. Ibuku has built over 60 bamboo structures in Bali, Indonesia, and around the region.
Upcoming projects are underway in West Africa, Lombok, and Bali. Bamboo has had a long tradition as a building material in Bali.
In the s, the arrival of young designers from western countries took bamboo building to an exciting new level. Linda Garland pioneered this movement, attracting international attention with her innovative designs in houses and furniture.
She pioneered new treatment methods to preserve the bamboo and prolong its life. John soon came to see bamboo as the future of sustainable building and made a vow never to construct another wood or concrete building.
Inspired by the natural curve of the bamboo, they tied the tips of the poles together into a towering arch. In late John gathered a team to design and build the Green School. The first structure at Green School was a bridge, connecting the two sides of the river valley campus.
It stands as an outstanding example of what is possible when architects, engineers, designers, and craftsmen come together to build in a new way. The construction of Green School led to many innovations in bamboo architecture and engineering. Joerg Stamm, a German builder who specializes in bamboo, was a key contributor to this process along with artist Aldo Landwher.
Nine of these buildings now make up Green Village, a community of luxurious private homes neighboring Green School.
What we are doing is reinventing the rules and standards of what a building can look like. These buildings are a testament to the power of bamboo and the possibilities of sustainable architecture.
