Topic: Redefining : Bamboo



IBUKU is a team of young designers, architects and engineers exploring groundbreaking ways of using bamboo to build homes, hotels, schools, and event spaces in Bali, Indonesia. They are creating a new design vocabulary based on this one material and exploring the way sustainable architecture and design can redefine luxury. The materials they use, the people they work with, and the land they build on all inform their design process. The traditional skills of Balinese craftsmen, combined with their design ideas and modern engineering enable us to create original bamboo structures that meet the needs of a diverse clientele.


IBUKU’s goal is to provide spaces in which people can live in an authentic relationship with nature.  They do this by designing fully functional homes and furniture that are made of natural substances and built-in ways that integrate with nature. They give their 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. Completed key projects include the Green School, Green Village, Sharma Springs, and Bambu Indah Hotel, which have appeared in international publications like Architectural Digest, Vogue and the Huffington Post. Upcoming projects are underway in West Africa, Lombok, and Bali.
