Below is a link to a fantastic article about the Sumba House at Bambu Indah, an extraordinary eco-hotel in Bali founded by John and Cynthia Hardy. They have created a guest house using the unique design of a traditional Sumbanese home.
We are very excited that Ibuku, founded by John’s daughter, Elora, has designed our Sumba house, which will serve as our welcome area and reception. Our Sumba house will feature a display of ikats and Sumbanese artifacts, and the roof will stand 18 meters tall. We are very proud to have this traditional building as part of our project. We feel that the design will create a more authentic experience of Sumba while blending in nicely with the homes on the island.
