Zoka Zola’s Naturally Cooled Bamboo Hostel is a Giant Wind Scoop
The hostel will be a corporate retreat and training center but the developer also wants to push the limits of green design. The 24 bedrooms are all set on an upper floor which is fed fresh air by an aggressive wind scoop system built into the roof. Designed in conjunction with Arup Engineering , the roof directs the prevailing winds and pushes them into the core of the building, providing each room with cooling breezes. The lower floor will be the community area with a restaurant, conference space and indoor/outdoor area tucked below the sleeping quarters.
