印尼巴厘岛： 库拉羽毛球场 竹建筑
建筑师：IBUKU, Studio Jencquel
The original concept for building Kula Kula was started by Yanko Studio as part of the larger real estate project they were developing (Lumahuyan Real Estate). The studio has some spare land close to the street and is not used for “rooms”. They saw an opportunity to build something that would also form a barrier or buffer between the street and the hotel’s guest quarters.
One of them is that the shape of the building is related to the flight of the rotorcraft. The trajectory is parabolic and requires a minimum height clearance of 9m, which is quite high. Maximilian jenquel doesn’t want a building that stands out like a tall box nearby, so touching the shape of the flight path of the shuttle cock seems to be the obvious choice. This means that the building will have bold curves.
Although many materials could be considered to build this shape, in terms of budget, time, and location, the most obvious choice was to use bamboo. As a result, the studio’s good friend Elora Hardy from Ibuku was asked to design a structure based on these requirements. That’s when the Ibuku team came up with the main form.
The two offices collaborated on the selection of bamboo, aiming to contrast the black and gold bamboo. When Ibuku designed the structure, studio Jencquel was involved in the decision-making process, including extending the roof line to almost touch the ground, preventing the dominant wind from entering the building, while still maintaining the air circulation needed to keep heat out of the building.
