Set along the terraced slopes of the Ayung River in Sibang, Bali, Green Village is a master-planned community of eighteen dramatically unique homes, each custom designed, rigorously engineered, and hand-constructed to embody the inherent strengths and versatility of bamboo. Within walking distance of the Green School, the architectural innovations and structural vocabulary are an extension of the sustainable principles and artisan craftsmanship of the world famous campus.
According to Elora Hardy, creative director of the Ibuku design team, “Green Village has redefined the potential of sustainable materials. It is a place where where people connect with nature. We build light on the land. With very few resources or attention a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years, and that house can stand strong for a lifetime. The care we put into designing the homes and the skill of the local craftsmen is a statement about the potential for human innovation and ingenuity for the future.”
Homeowner Peter Barge says “Being an active permaculture farmer with a twenty year background in Asian real estate, I was looking for a Bali residence that made good investment sense but had minimal impact on the environment. Hardy’s vision, the creative use of materials, and the magnificent river and jungle setting was an opportunity that will never be replicated.”
Claire Burgess, a New Zealand native who is based in Vietnam as Regional Director of a Swiss-based corporation, says she found Green Village while in the market for a property in Ubud. “I fell in love with Green School and the concept of living in a home totally made out of bamboo.” Burgess customized her villa with design accents and finishes created by Elora and her team including naturally black bamboo flooring, hand hammered copper bath fixtures, custom pieces from Ibuku’s home furnishings line and a lagoon shaped plunge pool set against the backdrop of the coconut grove and river below.
Green Village homeowners enjoy a global environment within a culturally rich Balinese community with access to organic produce and Balinese home cooking from the Green Village gardens and Cafe, as well as nearby events including the Ubud Readers & Writers Festival, the Bali Spirit festival. Located twenty-five minutes to Bali’s cultural center of Ubud, 35 minutes to Bali’s surfing beaches and within walking distance to the Green School campus, the Green Village community has attracted investors and homeowners from around the world.
A percentage of every villa sold is contributed to Green School’s Balinese Student Scholarship Fund.
