Elora Hardy & Defit Wijaya (IBUKU)

IBUKU is a team of young designers, architects, and engineers exploring groundbreaking ways of using bamboo to build homes, hotels, schools, and event spaces in Bali, Indonesia. They are creating a new design vocabulary based on this one material and exploring the way sustainable architecture and design can redefine luxury. The materials they use, the people they work with, and the land they build on all inform their design process. The traditional skills of Balinese craftsmen, combined with their design ideas and modern engineering enable them to create original bamboo structures that meet the needs of a diverse clientele.

IBUKU has built over 60 bamboo structures in Bali, Indonesia, and around the region. Completed key projects include the Green School, Green Village, Sharma Springs, and Bambu Indah Hotel, which have appeared in international publications like Architectural Digest, Vogue, and The Huffington Post. Upcoming projects are underway in West Africa, Lombok, and Bali.
