Bamboo Facade

This old age home was designed by Michaelis Boyd Associates and John Sandy Associates for retired British Gorkha soldiers using natural materials like stone and bamboo. Though bamboo have been used here only as a non-structural decorative element, its delicate craftsmanship and intricate design will help in recognizing bamboo and stone as a viable modern construction material. Large overhang roofs, gap between floor and bamboo,  pressurized treatment will increase durability of bamboo and modern connection will make maintenance easier.  Construction of bamboo part was done by ABARI and we thank our technical team Ram Hari, Ram Krishna Thapa and our experienced coordinator Basanta Adhikary for their round the clock commitment.
