Bamboostix is an island resort for backpackers built to provide a friendly, low-cost accommodation option with ambience for backpackers wanting to travel to Kerala India. Located on a wind-swept island in Alleppey, the property has an idyllic setting and provides serenity and a relaxed atmosphere for those wanting to experience the soul of Gods Own Country.
Our vision was to build something with natural materials that blends into the unique environment of big open spaces comprising paddy fields, coconut trees and a really big lake. The design for this resort incorporates bamboo as the chief building material. The floors, ceilings, walls and most of the furniture have been made entirely out of bamboo.
Instead of a raft foundation that would be concrete-heavy we dug in 4.5m of coconut tree trunks in to the ground. Extensive use of coconut logs was made in constructing the foundation.
The views get better with height and we wanted to maximise this so we chose a flat roof structure that would double up as recreational space. The moving (live) weight added to the structural requirement, and all the columns and beams were built with concrete, metal and bricks. For the rest – walls, floors, ceilings we used bamboo. Because it would be exposed to harsh sun, rain and pests in a farm environment we had to give it the right treatment.
We tap water for showers and toilets from the aquifers 40 metres below ground level and all sewage is treated in an on-site treatment system
