introduction

The 6 star hotel resort Soneva Kiri is located on Koh Kood, an island in the Gulf of Thailand. At this unique site, 24H-architecture designed a series of ecological icons to contribute to Six Senses' high ambitions in design and ecology.

Most prominent is The Children Activity and Learning Centre, which will provide visiting children a wide range of entertaining activities as well as raise the level of ecological awareness with them. This Den provides an Auditorium/Cinema for films, lectures and plays, a library with books on permaculture and local traditions, an Art room, a Music room and Fashion room, thus giving children both creative and ecological education while playing.

materials and building techniques

Bamboo is one of the most widely used building materials in the world, but mainly by low income people. Therefore, it's nickname is the 'poor man's timber' and as soon as people have enough money they will build a house of stone or concrete.
The aim of the project is to chance the bad reputation of bamboo and inspire people and architects by showing that it is an amazingly beautiful material which is also suited for making modern architecture.
