Glamping villas near MotoGP race track in Lombok 2021 would form the ideal vacation resorts for future. Closely interacting with nature, the glamping villas require a creative eye to utilise the natural resources available at Lombok, to select the impeccable spot in mountains, beaches and villages, and erect living structures that effortlessly blend extravagance with comfort.
Indeed, it’s an open opportunity to create luxurious eco-friendly glamping spaces under the starry sky.
So, become a part of our ‘Glamping Competition 2020’ to be seen as the next big success story around the globe.
Let your imagination float across the massive opportunities Lombok has to offer. Because for an artist, the most creative space is a blank space, with millions of opportunities in sight. Garb your creative spirit in unique Glamping villas designs that no one has ever witnessed before.
Jurors of Prefab Glamping Competition:
Among the jurors, we have three most creative architects who view the world from a different angle: Riri Jacob (Atelier Riri), Takeru Shoji (Takeru Shoji Architects) and Budi Pradono (budipradono architects a+u)
Let’s take a closer look at the achievements of our revered jurors that you’d be excited to meet at the Glamping Competition 2020 in Lombok:
Riri Jacob (atelier Riri)
Atelier Riri is developing a global solution by envisioning (Re)Pods—an expansion project of 2.4x2.4x2.4—that are sustainable and faster methods of housing development. Given the price hikes of lands for home constructions, (Re)Pods offer an affordable living space to residents as well as tourists.
(Re)Pods by Atelier Riri are an emerging solution for future architecture and construction methods. The dynamic design allows residents to adapt the space to their individual needs.
Installation units under the (Re)Pods project include:
· (Re)side—The concept behind re(side) is ‘Continuity in Functionality’. It’s a single, box shaped room space that can serve multiple functions in the house like kitchen, bedroom, etc.
· (Re)tail—The concept behind (re)tail is ‘Occupying Void’. It’s also a single, box-shaped space with deleted middle section or some sections in the perimeter. It’s a functional and interactive space for the merchants and customers.
· (Re)sort—The concept is that of ‘Double Decker’. With a mix application of building materials, it consists of two levels of framework with untraditional configuration. It adds fun to the compact living spaces for residents.
The (Re)pods project is a creative solution to modern problems, especially attracting tourists seeking affordable spaces.
Takeru Shoji (Takeru Shoji Architects)
Takeru Shoji architects seek a spirit of unity among residents through their homes of ‘incompleteness’.
Hara house in the village of Nagaoka city, a project handled by Takersu Shoji Architects, was envisioned as an ‘incomplete remote extension’ of the main house.
The buildings are not completely self-sufficient and rely on their surroundings for maximum functionality, basically to achieve a thriving community.
They are simply large spaces that cannot fulfil user’s needs under one roof to promote a greater sense of communal life—opposite to self-sufficient closed cloisters of modern architectural structures.
Moreover, the large singular spaces without compartmentalisations encourage the users to add their own flavour to the ‘building’ as there are no pre-defined distinctions for the open spaces.
In simpler words, Hara house is a ‘series of truss frames’ that aim to connect all these inclusive entities to create a collective form of village.
Hara house throws a nostalgic light on the collective form of communities in the traditional settings.
Budi Pradono (budipradono architects a+u)
Renowned for building a shelters for cyclists in Indonesia, Budi Pradono architects created functional, spacious, and close-to-nature resting areas for the racers in 2016.
In Banyuwangi, the centre of east coast of Java in Indonesia, ‘i-shelter’ was designed from petung bamboo that was commonly found in the area. Bamboo was long preserved by soaking in river for up to 8 months. Budi Pradono architects valued the resident’s preservation methods and used it to create unique shelters for the cyclists.
Budi Pradono architects creative vision has more to reveal. They topped hillside houses in Lombok with tilted shipping containers that were available a few miles away from the residing spots. The eccentric blend to contemporary houses demonstrates the capacities of Budi Pradono architects.
The inspiring story doesn’t end there as the most challenging yet ravishing work by Budi Pradono architects was completing a leaning residence, a matchless symbol of anti-establishment, in Jakarta. The amazing residence reverberates a stark anti-thesis to mock-European style homes!
