Lanterns Sea Village offers temporary housing for surfers in Spain

Comments Off on Lanterns Sea Village offers temporary housing for surfers in Spain

Lanterns Sea Village is a proposed temporary housing solution for the many surfers who visit Tarifa’s shores in southern Spain. Hundreds of  bamboo tetrahedra combine to create a strong, solid structure that extends from the beach out to the sea. Since it’s modular, it can easily be expanded as needed, or even disassembled and recycled entirely, leaving no trace. The floors are made of recycled wood and the sunshades are made of recycled surfboards, which have been cut and glued together. Life in the Sea Lanterns Village is organized on two levels: walkways and stairs are placed at both ground level and 4 meters above sea level for access to the upper-level residences, with kitchens and bathrooms accessible to all. To make the residences energetically independent, it’s possible to draw upon the driving force of the sea by installing mini-turbines, or to take advantage of the large surface area of the roof to install a mini-windmill and amorphous photovoltaic/solar panels.

Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Bamboo builder, and Ibuku Founder Elora Hardy on Creating Incredible Green Buildings with Bamboo

We’ve showcased numerous bamboo designs over the years, from furniture to entire buildings, but when it comes to combining green building and renewable materials, Ibuku’s incredible bent-bamboo buildings take the cake. The Bali-based bamboo building team already has luxury villas, houses, schools and infrastructure buildings in their portfolio, and is renowned for their dedication to using traditional Indonesian building techniques . We spoke with the firm’s founder and CEO, designer Elora Hardy, about vernacular architecture traditions, her involvement with designing bamboo buildings , and the reasons behind her vocational change from high-end fashion to sustainable architecture Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Read the rest of INTERVIEW: Bamboo builder, and Ibuku Founder Elora Hardy on Creating Incredible Green Buildings with Bamboo Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: “sustainable architecture” , Bali , Bali architecture , Bali bamboo , Balinese , Balinese bamboo , bamboo , bamboo architecture , bamboo building , bamboo design , bamboo green school , bamboo villas , Elora , Elora Hardy , green school , Hardy Green School , Ibuku bamboo , Ibuku interview , renewable building material , renewable material , sustainable bamboo , sustainable building material

Comments Off on Inhabitat’s top original photos of 2014

  Here at Inhabitat, we’re fortunate enough to be able to write about some truly spectacular topics, and occasionally we also have the opportunity to travel around and take great photos to share as well! When we visit new cities, we might drop by a newly built passive home  to snap some pictures, and sometimes we’re lucky enough to attend the opening of a new park . Our writers have taken pictures of Baltimore’s solar-powered water wheel , a bunker-style home in San Francisco, and even got a sneak peek at Toyota’s new Urban Utility Vehicle . One of the most powerful experiences we had this past year was being present at the 400,000-people-strong climate march in Manhattan ; the biggest in history so far! Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the photos we’ve taken to share with you: please vote for your favorite below and let us know which gallery you liked best!
