This extraordinary Japanese noodle restaurant located in Jakarta, Indonesia needed to be disassembled easily, so design firm DSA+s made the bold decision to build it entirely out of bamboo. The result is a richly textured, light-filled environment that is impermanent yet robust. The designers rethought the function of shelter and developed a dining space that is light, renewable, and protects guests from sun and rain.
A Japanese noodle restaurant is a risky venture in Jakarta, so the owner did not want to erect a permanent building which would later have to be demolished or extensively remodeled if the venture was not successful. The fantastic resulting space should be reason enough to attract a great patronage.
The canopy is essentially conceived as a series of inside-out umbrellas abutted to each other to provide a protected but open, airy environment. Most of the structure is bamboo coupled together with ijuk, a rope made from sugar palm fiber.
The roof is made from inverted layers of wide bamboo shoots, which not only collect rain water but also keep the bamboo from splitting in the intense sun. The collected water is directed into a bamboo-wrapped pipe that runs from the center of the column to the ground. Some concrete was used for the stair and patio and to support the canopies base and to keep the bamboo off the wet ground.


Sitting among the canopy of a jungle forest near Yelapa, Mexico, these V-Houses by Heinz Legler are quite possibly an eco-adventurer’s paradise. The treehouse-like structures are lofted 16 feet above the ground and open on all sides to offer panoramic views of the tropical surroundings. Although the rooms measure only 16 feet by 16 feet, a slanted ceiling and open walls make the treehouse seem larger — blurring the lines between indoors and outdoors. And to top off this eco-dream of a jungle retreat, the V-Houses were designed with modular components, made with sustainable materials, and have incorporated solar panels, composting toilets, and a greywater system.

The shelters are based on hooches in Puerto Rico and Oregon designed by Jo Scheer, but have a modern-ized aesthetic (the original was made of bamboo) with the use of steel, plywood, and red corrugated iron roofs. Based on a modular design, the houses were prefabricated in Puerto Vallarta and then brought by boat to the site. Once on the site, constructing the houses required no moving of soil or excavating as the houses were designed to be lofted on V-shaped stands planted into the ground.
These shelters are currently being used as temporary housing for employees that work at the Verana resort, but the owners say that the treehouse-like shelters have been such a hit that they plan on building more, but this time for guests — so get ready to pack your bags!

Conceptual House

Sebenarnya gambar-gambar rumah ini sudah cukup lama dini desain..
Desain rumah ini diperuntukkan untuk sebuah perumahan di kota Batam..
Tapi sayang sekali...
Ternyata, model rumah-rumah seperti ini masih belum bisa diterapkan di kota Batam kata si developer..(mungkin alasan pertimbangan biaya)


Mungkin ada yang punya developer perumahan di sini..?

This house by Spanish architects Subarquitectura spirals down a sloping site in Madrid.
 The sweeping form overlaps at one point and gradually ramps down to accommodate the slope of the terrain.
360 House has continuous fenestration along the east-facing side to offer panoramic views of mountains in the distance while descending through the house.
