Bamboo Loveshack

Bamboo Loveshack was built as part of a 3-week winter elective at UNSW in Sydney. As a tutors and designers our responsibility was to introduce students to this amazing material, guide them through the design detailing process and construction phase of the structure.

The structure is 3m x 4.5m and has a 1.2m wide deck on its two sides. The doors are made out of timber, windows have bamboo screens, the flooring is bamboo boards, whole bamboo for entire structure  and whole bamboo for the deck. All the connections are bolted and the joints in stress are grouted with quick set cement.
