Bamboo Architecture in Bali

Working With Bamboo

At Pablo Luna Studio, we are dedicated to finding unique and sustainable solutions for our client’s architectural needs. Our focus on bamboo as a building material not only allows us to incorporate local culture and craftsmanship into our designs but also reduces our environmental impact. We have completed a diverse array of projects, from small private homes to large public buildings, in Indonesia and beyond. 

As an architectural firm based in Bali, we are constantly inspired by the tropical environment and rich culture surrounding us – an influence that is evident in our work.

Our modern and innovative approach allows us to consistently create inspiring and functional interior design spaces that celebrate the beauty of bamboo and its potential as a versatile building material. We are proud to be leading the way in promoting bamboo architecture and design both in Bali and globally.
