The roof and wall systems are made up of local bamboo 100mm to 120mm in diameter. The triangular structural system, also made from bamboo, supports the pitched roofs, establishing large, column-free raised platforms that can be extended and connected to each other. The four sloping roof panels come together to form a skylight, bringing additional natural light into the space.
