A forest for a Moon dazzler Bamboo House Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Architect Benjamin Garcia Saxe has designed this versatile Bamboo House. The bamboo is used for almost all parts in the house with furniture made in bamboo too. Let’s read the designer’s words, “This house for my mom Helen is the culmination of a lifelong dream to construct a place where my mom, my brother, and I can be together. My mom first moved away from the city and built her own home out of tree trunks, mosquito nets and tin. She then placed her bed in a corner of this house to watch the moon as she went to bed, and told me that she remembers both my brother and I every night as she watches the moon. The new home then became reinterpretation of her old self made dwelling by providing her with a view to the moon and a very open plan that captures an internal garden whilst giving her security when she sleeps.”
