The Ulaman Resort in Bali was designed by Inspiral Architecture and Design Studios. It was made from rammed earth, bamboo, natural stone, and recycled timbers, as well as SIP panels that have a low carbon footprint because they combine recycled EPS with earth-based, fiber-reinforced polymer renders, allowing them to be strong, lightweight, and insulated.
The restaurant area is made of a series of geometric pods that function as mini cathedrals. These are situated over a junction of waterfalls. There is a lake that serves as a reservoir for hydroelectric turbines. A number of rooms are perched over the lake and some are raised into the tree canopies at 9m in height.
Other facilities include a gym, a yoga pavilion, a naturalized pool, and a small conference room.
Ulaman is a testament to what can be accomplished when a client and the architectural design team collaborate with a common goal in mind: to push the boundaries of what is possible in order to create sustainable intelligent design solutions.
