"There is an "instinctive biological bond between humans and other living systems. The idea is that people thrive best in environments that have other forms of life around, and flourish in spaces that are more like habitats or ecosystems, instead of our all-too-common, isolated, cartesian cubes."

(Edward O. Wilson, Harvard entomologist & scientist, 1985)

Freeform Earthbags Between Boulders


This rather luxurious "cave" artfully combines granite, wood and earth. It has a 70 sqm ground floor divided into three rooms on 3 levels, topped by a 20 sqm loft. While the earthbag walls elegantly fill gaps between large boulders, the double roof structure is elliptic in shape and rests on two Sandalwood poles which previously served as main masts on a sailing boat. Corners are entirely absent, and a feeling of peace and tranquility prevails.

Toolshed & Storage with Adjacent Guest Room

The first building on our jungle hillside property. Dimensions are 4 m x 8 m x 2.80 m. Rougly 1100 earthbags and over 50 metric tons of dirt were used to create this fortress-like structure. Duration of actual bagwork, in case you wondered, was 4 persons for 4 weeks. The wooden ceiling serves as a multipurpose platform beautifully overlooking the jungle.

Kaya Kalpa (Darkroom) Dome

A small, 3.25 meter interior diameter meditation dome. In order to prevent any light from penetrating the interior, a double door system was devised. Air enters the dome through 3 pipes which run underground for a distance between 4 and 7 meters and is being sucked out by an air vent in the upper part of the dome. This space combines sacred proportions, complete darkness, and only very minimal sound pollution and hence effectively facilitates deeper states of meditative absorption.

Freeform Earthbag Kitchen & Lounge with Room atop

A small, cozy space with a constant breeze. Mixing earthbags with earthen bricks results in classy alcoves that can be used as bookshelves or storage for food under the kitchen bench. A ladder connects the lower open area to the second floor – a 4m x 4m bedroom with bamboo walls and a large window overlooking the bay.
