“Bamboos will do good if you use them right.” says Hardy. Revisiting the utilization of bamboo, the most traditional and indigenous material in Indonesia, Hardy has proved that comfort, luxury, and beauty can be manifested and replicated sustainably.
You’ve never seen buildings like this. The stunning bamboo homes built by Elora Hardy and her team in Bali twist, curve and surprise at every turn.
