Bali-based design and research studio Pablo Luna Studio has designed a tree house hotel elevated on bamboo pillars within lush forest of Bali, Indonesia.
Named Tree House, the 70-square-metre project located in the town of Ubud, at the heart of the island of Bali.
Surrounded by jungle to the sides and rice terraces in the front, this suite from the boutique hotel Stonehouse, stands five meters above the ground thanks to its 14 centimeter diameter and 8 meter long bamboo pillars.
Tree House’s ceiling is made from 3 centimeter wide x 2.5 centimeter thick x 4 meter long bamboo splits, creating a grid-shell that derives its strength from its double curvature.
The overall shape shows the integration of architecture and environment, and the relationship between space and nature.
The interior floor is also made from bamboo splits that smoothly transitions into a wooden terrace.
This moment in the building highlights the wall-less space that keeps indoors and outdoors as one unity. The interior design bows to the beauty and sacredness of bamboo with a circular nest-like custom made bed by the studio.
Other features like the toilet cave and shower bring their inspiration from the adjacent jungle.
Every corner is meant to be an experience. A unique and organic space for those who seek to meditate and relax on the shear and wonder of Bali cultural context and scenery.
Pablo Luna Studio focuses on the design, development and construction of architecture. The studio uses locally sourced materials that have a low impact on the environment while creating high-performance buildings that won’t be expensive to heat and maintain.
The firm architectural design philosophy is based on four main elements: Biomimicry, Environment, Tri Hita Karana, and Sustainability.
