This is aCentre built for Nature exploration by school children and can also be used as an eco-resort. A bamboo deck and railing were added to the client’s pre-existing house, and this is connected to the surrounding landscape by a small bamboo bridge. 15 sets of furniture were made specifically for this project.

A 20 ft high machan made fully of bamboo allows observing nature from above. The two storeyed tower is supported by columns of four joint bamboos, of which 1 of them continues up from the 1st floor to support the roof.
