Currently the tallest bamboo structure on the island, this villa for rent in Bali is not only an architectural wonder, but a work of art. Featured on the front page of New York magazine, this wondrous structure is part of the groundbreaking Green Village ecosystem, a compound for like-minded individuals seeking a more sustainable and authentic way of living, and an alternative to the stresses of modern society.
Designed by a team of young designers, architects and engineers known as IBUKU, the villa is crafted entirely by hand out of locally-grown Asper bamboo – “creating a new design vocabulary based on this one material and exploring the way sustainable architecture and design can redefine luxury.” No mechanical devices were used in construction, and every single piece of material was carried by hand and brought together by the artisans of the village of Bone whose techniques, skills and artistry date back centuries.
Bamboo has been twisted and curled into beautiful but improbable curves to create staircases and walls, and at times fanned out like feathers to create partitions. Light fittings, furniture and finishes are also created by IBUKU.
Part of one of the world’s most remarkable sustainable communities, this one-of-a-kind villa is perfect for lovers of sustainable architecture and adventurous spirits craving a unique getaway among the island’s epic natural beauty.
