Right in time for the “Day of Architecture” on June 25th and 26th, Green Pearls® introduces 10 green properties with diverse sustainable architectures, each of which has an interesting story to tell. Prepare for 10 sustainable architectures, 10 unique stories and 10 wow-effects!
Keemala Beyond Enchanting is a wonderland of architectural masterpieces. The architecture recreates a story about four fictional ancient Phuket tribes – the Earth, Wanderer, Sky, and Nest tribes. Made from environmental-friendly synthetic materials, the diverse villas were designed to blend in with the existing eco-system and monitored to reduce the impact on nature. A must-see!
4 Rivers Floating Lodge, Cambodia
An interesting story also stands behind the floating lodges of the Cambodian 4 Rivers. While the flooring was constructed with wood-plastic-composite from 100% recycled plastic, four layers of the roof ensure maximum ventilation and the missing permanent structures avoid imprints on the environment. The floating tents were solely built with man power and small hand tools – the outcome is astounding!
Misool Eco Resort, Indonesia
100% reclaimed tropical hardwoods, insulating ‘alang alang’ grass thatch and on-site crafted furniture is what you find at Misool Eco Resort in Indonesia. While deep patios and low roof lines prevent solar heat to enter the building, the pitched roofs enable natural ventilation. A sustainable architectural masterpiece!
CGH Earth Coconut Lagoon, India
The CGH Earth Coconut Lagoon fascinates with over 150 year old mansions, which were originally restored from ruinous county houses. As the old craft has slowly died out, it took some effort to locate the descendants of those very craftsmen, who originally created the houses. It took the devoted workers several years to patiently reestablish the fine-detailed woodwork of the mansions.
