Gallery: The Lamboo Solar Studio is a Curvy Eco Home Built from Bamboo


The Lamboo Studio Project is a small solar powered studio that uses a radical S-shaped roof system to help keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter – all made possible by bamboo grass. The unique standing seam metal roof also has built-in solar electric panels. The home’s appealing design is aesthetically pleasing as well as practical – it saves energy and provides generous daylight.

The Lamboo Company specializes in structural bamboo and wanted to create a home design to show off their line of products. They outfitted the 300 square foot studio with a small bathroom including a composting toilet, a whole lot of windows and a wrap around deck. The main room is a generously proportioned space that features high glazing to allow light to penetrate deeply into the space while still remaining adequately shaded in the summer.

The building is to be made mostly from renewable resources like a cork floor, bamboo I-joists, bamboo curved beams and wall paneling. A fast growing grass that has over 1600 species, bamboo has been used in the west mainly for floors and things like cutting boards.

    Great ideas !!! More and more bamboo should be planted in tropical countries in order to provide enough material for growing demands . Colombia should become best provider, since we grow Guadua naturally , one of strongest and lightest fiber in bamboo world . Contact ARCH. JAIRO ACERO at for new bamboo plantations in Colombia – Best regards . ARCHIACERO
