Video: Ecological Architecture Advocating Bamboo Construction
Nothing like a tiny island of remarkable beauty located in the Cat Ba archipelago, a well-known tourist destination in Vietnam that makes us dream. This little corner of paradise is home to some fascinating buildings whose ecological architecture cannot go unnoticed. This is the Castaway Island Resort which can accommodate up to 160 people and offers a splendid view of the surrounding natural landscape. Accessible only by boat, the resort boasts a white sand beach, plenty of romantic lights at night, a fascinating bamboo structure and more while promising a memorable stay in tropical nature!
The ecological architecture of Castaway Island Resort by VTN Architects
The resort is built on a private beach, which occupies an area of 3000 m 2, surrounded on one side by a magnificent mountain range and a wide white sand shore on the other. In addition to offering an unforgettable experience to tourists and designed to connect them to nature, the complex has five cozy cabins and an incredible restaurant promoting ecological architecture. To achieve this, the architects used bamboo, an eco-friendly material that blends harmoniously into the construction and, if necessary, allows easy removal without affecting the enchanting landscape.
Crowned with a thatched roof, the bamboo construction reduces environmental impact while providing tourists with a 100% authentic Vietnamese cultural experience. Regarding the processing of bamboo, specialists have favored a traditional natural method that had been developed in a craft village in Vietnam. It consists of first dipping the material in mud and then smoking it.
Adorned with multiple light bulbs, the stunning view restaurant guarantees a romantic dinner, which will make you stay forever! In full harmony with the natural landscape, the wavy bamboo ceiling adds a dynamic touch to the whole while inviting relaxation.
