Copper House at Bambu Indah

Ibuku Bamboo Architecture and Design as Architects

The Moon House and Copper House are the latest additions to Bambu Indah, an eco-resort in Sayan, Bali, and were co-designed by IBUKU and John Hardy. Both structures allow guests to have the closest possible connection with ‘the pulse of nature’ while maintaining luxurious features and facilities. Each room is enveloped by a curving roof but open to the elements, and within, the beds can be completely enclosed and air-conditioned to provide the best of both worlds.

The rooms were designed using a grid shell structure, which gives them a very organic feel, and were designed for the view and the land they were built upon. Both are tucked into the landscape and were designed to maximize the stunning outlook onto the river and rice fields. In Copper House (named after its beautiful copper roof shingles), the bathtub is one of the focal points of the room. The room was actually built around a tree that already grew on the ridge site. IBUKU Creative Director Elora Hardy says, “I thought it would be lovely to be standing in front of the tree and see a mirror over the sink and that incredible view at the same time.”

Bambu Indah was founded by Cynthia and John Hardy in 2005. The resort combines restored antique Javanese houses with newer structures built with sustainable bamboo. Unlike buildings with concrete foundations, stilted buildings can ultimately be moved or removed with little impact to the earth. The resort design also promotes the use of natural light and passive cooling to cut down on energy costs. The food gardens supply nearly 50% of the guests’ food requirements.
