Inspirational Bamboo Design From Around the World

At Eco Bamboo Africa we are constantly looking for new and inspirational ways to bring bamboo into our lives. Below are some of the latest bamboo building projects by architects and builders from around the world, that use this wonder material in new and improved ways. 

Bamboo Gateway Building by West-line Studio

"The park gateway has been designed by West-line studio architects as a dense assembly of vertical lines. The gate is hidden in the Bamboo Sea and interacts with the particular weather conditions of the area (sun, thick fog, rain, wind and snow) which make the architecture unstable and flexible. The gate  aims to 'activate' the bamboo being at the same time hidden into the forest but also creating an iconic entrance for the park." Click here for the full article

Bamboo Treehouse for a Sustainable Resort

"On a lush stretch of beach in Mexico, north of Acapulco, lies a sustainable resort called Playa Viva. They recently opened a bi-level treehouse designed by Chicago firm Deture Culsign. Made of bamboo, the solar-powered cylindrical treehouse offers gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean." Click here for the full article

A Restaurant Wrapped in Bamboo

"An irregular shaped steel pavilion extrudes into the courtyard, connecting the restaurant interior with the courtyard space. The pavilion is wrapped with bamboo to emphasize its volume and to filter sunlight for its interior. The bamboo façade is operable towards the courtyard, allowing more interaction during bazaar hours. The bamboo facade also extends upward and becomes the banister for the terrace. The profile of the banister is tilted, directing the spatial orientation towards the preserved upper floor facade and tiled roof of the neighboring timber building." Click here for the orginal.
