Atelier Nomadic’s bamboo treehouses takes regenerative travel to the next level

Atelier Nomadic, the design studio at Nomadic Resorts, has designed a series of bamboo treehouses at Playa Viva, an environmentally conscious resort dedicated to sustainability and regenerative practices. Positive impact is integral to the Playa Viva experience, which is run entirely off-grid and generating 100% of its energy from solar power. The resort works extensively with the local community to support health and education and works year-round to restore and revitalize the surrounding land. The resort is the founding member of the Regenerative Travel organization and founded and supports the La Tortuga Viva turtle sanctuary.

The resorts latest extension includes 6 bamboo treehouses inspired by the flattened, prismatic bodies of the Mobula Rays that migrate past the properties shore. Scattered along the Mexican coastline, the treehouses are perched on coconut palms overlooking the surf. Each treehouse is composed from a master bedroom at the front and an annex treehouse at the rear that contains the bathroom downstairs and a second bedroom/lounge upstairs.

The treehouses are developed using bioclimatic design principles to suit the natural environment: the large eaves of the roof act like a big umbrella, providing shade for the strong heat of the sun and protection from heavy rains. The façade louvers allow for natural cross ventilation.

The structures are mostly built from local bamboo, one of the fastest growing renewable building materials in the world, and showcase the wide variety in which this versatile materials can be used. Strong Guadua bamboo poles were used for the main structure and roof structure, section strips were used in the façade louvers and flattened bamboo panels form the ceiling. Phyllostachis Aurea bamboo poles and dowels were used for the wall and façade panels in the annex building. Flooring is made of sustainably grown local Cumaru timber.

The holistic design was intended to align with the expected post COVID travelers’ desire to stay in exciting, healthy accommodation, immersed in the natural environment. After months of isolation and lock downs, here, guests can be submerged and re-connect with the natural environment: listen to the sound of the waves, bath in the warm sunset tones, feel the breeze sway through the palm leaves and taste the salt air, unmasked, as they lounge on the hammock suspended over the beach, staring at the stars.

Atelier Nomadic designs distinctive bamboo treehouses for a luxury resort in Mexico

The Dutch studio has added six treehouses to Playa Viva resort, blurring the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and offering guests the opportunity to be one with nature.

Atelier Nomadic has conceptualised bamboo treehouses that integrate with nature, for Playa Viva resort in Playa Icacos, Mexico, an environmentally conscious hotel dedicated to sustainability and regenerative practices. The retreat’s newest addition by the architecture and landscape design studio includes six bamboo treehouses inspired by the flattened, prismatic bodies of mobula rays that migrate past the property’s shore. Offering unobstructed views of a tranquil beach and surrounded by palm trees and verdant greenery, these treehouses are suspended mid-air and accompany the original treehouses designed by the Regenesis Group.

Atelier Nomadic is a design studio with offices in Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Mauritius. It specialises in biophilic architecture and regenerative landscape design. Atelier Nomadic developed the construction strategy of these new treehouses in collaboration with bamboo expert, Jorg Stamm, who supervised the construction and brought a diverse team of bamboo craftsmen on board. The Playa Viva treehouses are a great example of environmentally sustainable architecture. They exhibit limitless possibilities in design and construction materials, and question the status quo.  

Each new treehouse comprises a master bedroom at the front and an annex treehouse at the back. The master bedroom features a hammock balcony suspended out towards the sea and the annex treehouse comprises a lounge with daybeds, a study area with a desk, and a bathroom. While these treehouses are built of bamboo, they are well appointed with wooden furniture and luxurious amenities. The structures offer panoramic views of the surroundings. Moreover, the form of the treehouses is inspired by local mobula rays that are found in abundance in the region. With these structures, the resort and the architects wanted to celebrate the surrounding natural landscape and its inhabitants.

“The concept for the bamboo treehouse village at Playa Viva evolved from a unique online collaboration between the client and us. Under normal circumstances, we develop our concepts following an immersive workshop onsite with the client, consultants and stakeholders, during which we draw our inspiration from the natural surroundings, and experience and analyse the local environmental conditions. However, for Playa Viva, the COVID travel ban made this impossible. We adapted our approach to overcome the challenge, and for this project, it was the client who provided the required inspiration and site information. He envisioned a concept inspired by a drone video of a squadron of mobula rays migrating in the ocean right in front of the property. We collaborated closely with the developers via a series of video conference calls to propose a vision of a village of ray inspired treehouses, to complement the existing treehouse structures,” mentions Olav Bruin, Creative Director, Atelier Nomadic.

The design of the bamboo treehouses offered Atelier Nomadic an opportunity to develop a cutting edge structure in a surreal location without compromising their environmental ethos. The resort wants to set an example of how luxury tourism should develop in the future. Positive environmental and social impact is integral to the Playa Viva experience. It is run 100 per cent off grid and is completely solar powered. The property is entirely built from natural local materials. In addition, the resort supports healthcare and educational programs for the local community, and works on the regeneration of degraded land in the surroundings.

hese mobula ray treehouses were built using bioclimatic design principles to suit the natural environment. For instance, the eaves of the roof function like a large umbrella, offering shade from the sun and protection from heavy rains. The façade louvres allow for natural cross ventilation. Furthermore, the structures were primarily constructed using local bamboo, which is one of the fastest growing renewable building materials in the world. The treehouses exhibit the versatility and adaptability of bamboo in construction. The main structures and the roofs are made of sturdy Guadua bamboo poles, the façade louvres comprise section strips of bamboo and the ceilings feature flattened bamboo panels. The wall and façade panels in the annex treehouse comprise Phyllostachys aurea bamboo poles and the flooring features sustainably grown local Cumaru timber.

“Playa Viva offers the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Mexico in the guilt-free luxury of an environmentally conscious resort dedicated to sustainability and regenerative practices. The resort also founded and supports the La Tortuga Viva turtle sanctuary. Playa Viva provides a vacation experience that is in integrity with the highest aspirational values for how life should be lived,” adds Bruin.

The aim of the design of the Playa Viva treehouses was to align with the expected post COVID travellers’ desire to stay in one-of-a-kind accommodation immersed in the natural environment. These structures blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and offer guests a chance to be one with nature. “Sleeping in the mobula ray treehouse is a liberating personal experience,” adds Louis Thompson, CEO of Nomadic Resorts (Atelier Nomadic’s sister company). “After months of isolation and lockdowns, guests can connect with their environment once more. They can listen to the sound of the waves, feel the breeze sway through the palm leaves and taste the salt air, unmasked, as they lounge on the hammock suspended over the beach, staring at the stars. This is beyond wellness, its catharsis.”

Nomadic Resorts is at it again, designing a bamboo treehouse resort called Playa Viva in Mexico for an off-grid eco-vacation adventure. Inspired by the Mobula Rays that migrate off the shore of the resort, the project employed local construction workers and used sustainable bamboo and site-sourced materials.

The result is these gorgeous bamboo buildings with open windows. They were designed in partnership with David Leventhal, pioneer of the regenerative travel movement. Leventhal reached out to Nomadic Resorts, an eco-resort design studio, to develop six extra “rooms” for his eco-lodge Playa Viva.

The buildings are naturally ventilated and surrounded by nature.
“The design of the bamboo treehouses offered us a unique opportunity to develop a cutting-edge bamboo structure in an incredible location without compromising our environmental ethos. It was an enriching experience to work with a client like David, as he is completely in tune with our design
philosophy,” said Olav Bruin, Atelier Nomadic’s creative director.

Each pod looks out over gorgeous views of the beach and includes unique lattice structure walls and angled roofs. Coconut palms were also transplanted to be used to support the buildings. Hyperbolic paraboloid roofs were fixed to the trunks before the prefab panels were put into place to support them.

The beach huts look unique from every angle. Even better, they are well suited to the warm environment and still offer privacy for guests. The design was intended to serve the post-COVID traveler’s preference to stay in exciting but healthy accommodations, immersed in the natural environment.

Inside, the huts fit a dining area, bed and a couple of chairs, with a retractable curtain across the doorway for added privacy at night. “This is beyond wellness, it’s catharsis,” said Nomadic Resorts CEO Louis Thompson.

Nomadic Resorts specializes in creating eco-friendly stays, from tented pods to treehouses. Working out of offices in the Netherlands and Mauritius, the Nomadic Resorts design team focuses on sustainable projects.

perched on coconut palms overlooking the surf, these six bamboo treehouses are the latest accommodation offerings from playa viva, a luxury eco-resort in juluchuca, mexico. designed by rotterdam based atelier nomadic, the angular roof profile of the huts takes inspiration from the wing-like fins of mobula rays.

as well as taking inspiration from nature, the treehouses are also shaped by bioclimatic design principles. the large eaves provide ample shade from the hot sun and shelter from heavy rains while the façade louvers allow for natural cross ventilation.

each treehouse is composed of two staggered structures over three levels. the annexed structure at the rear contains a bathroom on level one and a second bedroom or lounge upstairs. the master bedroom is contained within the front treehouse and boasts a large opening that frames beach views from bed.

the structures are built mostly from local bamboo, one of the fastest-growing renewable building materials in the world. strong guadua bamboo poles were used for the main structure and roof structure, section strips were used in the façade louvers, and flattened bamboo panels form the ceiling. phyllostachis aurea bamboo poles and dowels were utilized for the wall and façade panels in the annex building. the flooring is made from sustainably grown local cumaru timber. (see the construction unfold in the video below).

as part of playa viva’s environmentally conscious and regenerative ethos, the treehouses are all completely off-grid, powered 100% by the sun. playa viva is also working to support the health and education of the local community, and restore and revitalize the surrounding land. the resort is the founding member of the regenerative travel organization and founded and supports the la tortuga viva turtle sanctuary.

“Cities have been isolating and expensive for a long time, but because of their strong economies, they have been hard to leave,” said Colin O’Donnell, the founder of Kibbo. The company blends van life and community with a membership model to create an on-the-road collective of digital nomads across the country. “Now, after a year of quarantine and with the opportunity to work from anywhere, people want to travel and live in beautiful natural locations with a tight-knit community, without giving up their job,” he said.

Many of the most fascinating nomadic designs come from around the world, inspirational architects and designers who foresee a need for future shelter and community. These designs are some of the most outrageous and yet oddly practical.

Nomadic Resorts

Nomadic Resorts is a design company that uses an integrated approach to architecture, landscape, and interior design to create sustainable projects that fit organically into their natural surroundings and serve as a bridge to connect nature, culture, and people. The Looper is an eco-suite that can easily be installed in jungles, mountains, deserts, or beaches.

The pre-fabricated pods are made from a lightweight tensile fabric stretched over a modular steel frame, a thick layer of recycled PET (plastic water bottles) insulation, and anti-viral internal liner fabric. The envelope is typically fitted out with sustainable bamboo flooring, porthole windows, and double-glazed facades, providing panoramic views and plenty of natural lights. The caterpillar cocoon-like interior can be equipped with a generous bathroom, an air-conditioned sleeping area, a lounge, a small office space with wifi, and a generous outdoor deck.

Louis Thompson, CEO of Nomadic, explains, “The Looper is the ideal environment for digital nomads in the new normal –combined with the appropriate sustainable technology, it can harness natural energy sources and harvest rainwater to offer an off-grid tiny home without compromising comfort, security or lifestyle.”

Escape into nature and isolate yourself in a luxurious pod

Tourism is opening up once again in countries all over the world, with companies and travellers alike seeking ways to adapt to the changing situation while ensuring safe measures are also in place. Design company Nomadic Resorts recently unveiled their newest creation – Seedpods designed for sleeping and dining that allow travellers to escape from the city and offer a unique opportunity to sleep outdoors and reconnect with Mother Nature in a comfortable way.

With the company’s first dining pods just installed at the Heritage Nature Reserve in Mauritius, plans are in place for more to be rolled out and used in different locations by different resorts in the future. The concept corresponds with social distancing regulations, and the Seedpod is made from easily cleaned, hygienic materials that can be quickly and easily disinfected compared to hotel rooms.

“The psychological and economic impacts of the coronavirus and subsequent lockdown will be far-reaching: people will obviously re-evaluate their notions of personal space, work, family and hygiene; but they will also reconsider food security, travel, wellbeing and their relationship with nature. A new form of travel will arise,” Nomadic Resorts said.

The pod can also resist wind speeds of 120km per hour, and can be installed in remote locations without the use of heavy machinery or power tools. The pod can be either hung from trees or erected on its own tripod and equipped with lighting, a ceiling fan, a cool box and a charging station for devices making it an ideal option for hiking trails, surf camps or silent safaris.

“The Seedpod has been developed as a low-impact, sustainable hospitality model , to accommodate the rise of experiential travel, eco-tourism, wellness retreats and alternative lodging trends. The idea is that sleeping in the pod, is a transformative experience in its own right – a chance to spend a night in a human nest where you can see the movement of the wildlife around you and hear the sounds of the forest,’’ the company said.

if you’re fed up with social distancing in the city and looking to reconnect with nature, nomadic resorts’ ‘seedpod‘ initiative could be a dream come true. with its low impact structure and soothing cocoon-like shape, this latest project from the hospitality design company offers travelers the opportunity to sleep in the great outdoors without compromising on comfort.

after years of research, the first working pod prototypes were installed at bel ombre nature reserve in mauritius in 2019. louis thompson, CEO of nomadic resorts explains: ‘our goal was to take inspiration from the humble seed, to create a floating hotel room that was both ephemeral and robust – comfortable but exciting to sleep in. the idea is that sleeping in the pod, is a transformative experience in its own right – a chance to spend a night in a human nest where you can see the movement of the wildlife around you and hear the sounds of the forest’.

the pop-up resort concept caters for a new form of travel, which focuses on more sustainable and authentic experiences. as COVID-19 has made many people re-evaluate their lifestyles, the seedpod presents a low impact, sustainable model to accommodate the rise of experiential travel, eco-tourism, wellness retreats and alternative lodging trends. at nomadic resorts, they want to create a hospitality revolution by designing a new generation of tented camps that can be quickly and cheaply set up in remote locations under their new operating brand nomadic escapes.

louis thompson adds ‘the recent crisis has changed the whole notion of hospitality. our team has been striving to find a symbiotic, harmonious relationship between the sites we develop and the comfort of our guests. to achieve that we needed to find a compromise between durability and sustainability, environmental integrity, personal hygiene and guest comfort – size was an important consideration, as we needed to create a concept that corresponds with the new low-touch economy and social distancing regulations – the seedpod is made from easily cleaned, hygienic materials and can be quickly and easily disinfected compared to a traditional hotel room’.

the pod can be either hung from trees or erected on its own tripod and equipped with lighting, a ceiling fan, a cool box and a charging station for devices, making it an ideal option for hiking trails, surf camps or silent safaris. the form of the structure was a critical consideration for the team – the natural shape of a seed is inherently aerodynamic: when their team of membrane engineers introduced the structure into their computer wind model it showed that using a small number of structural rings, combined with a new generation architectural fabric, the pod can resist windspeeds of 120kmh, so guests are safe even if a big storm hits.

the other critical consideration was installation – the team wanted to be able to quickly and quietly install the pods in remote locations without using heavy machinery or power tools, therefore reducing costs. having worked in remote wilderness camps throughout africa, nomadic resort COO neil hendrikz explains: ‘our idea was to create a structural system that could be installed using manpower only on virtually any terrain, anywhere on the planet within a day that could last at least for a decade’.

‘Seeds, by their very nature, are full of potential’ claims creative director olav bruin ‘so we created a multifunctional interior that can easily be converted from a seating arrangement during the day into a sleeping arrangement during the night. this way we are utilizing the full potential of the relatively compact space. the seedpods can be accompanied by a fully equipped pop-up bathroom with shower, toilet, washbasin and wardrobe to complete the ultimate back to nature camping experience in style. over the coming years we hope to see our seedpod family adapt, expand and evolve.’ you can find out more information and purchase the pods directly from nomadic resorts’ website here.

Winner 2018 UNESCO Prix Versailles World Award

May 16, 2018 Source

Culture and commercial architecture: two domains that are often depicted as contradictory. Indeed, commerce is associated with utilitarian functionalism, immediacy, playing it safe, and an impoverished style. Whilst culture is associated with beauty, creativity and a disinterested ideal. Naturally, this opposition is not systematic, and there are many high quality examples of their coexistence. However, such examples remain a rarity. The end goal of the Prix Versailles is to alter this state of affairs by merging these opposites together.

This perceived contradiction is emblematic of a stage in the modern era that is on the brink of becoming outdated. The new period into which we are entering demands quality in all things: culture needs to break out of its ivory tower, without overlooking commercial aspects. Conversely, commerce must progressively adopt the goals of environmentalism, quality, creativity and innovation. Where we saw disjunction before, today’s era calls for conjunction.

The Prix recognizes the most remarkable structures, in terms of both interior and exterior architecture.
Because the Prix is associated with Versailles, we want that world renowned symbol of beauty and elegance to serve not as a model but as a beacon or impetus for quality commercial architecture, today and tomorrow.

 

The Prix Versailles is an original programme with the very clear aim of fostering better interaction between the economy and culture. It underlines the role economic agents can play, in all sectors, to enhance, embellish and improve living environments.

This everyday architecture can be a lever for sustainable development where ecological (green economy), social and cultural (purple economy) dimensions intersect.
