Leafy Lieu

A leaf-inspired bamboo structure both collects rain water and gives shelter to the bathroom below. The roof shape is delicately held amongst the canopies with a light structure anchored to a big boulder.

The experience of using the toilet is rooted in nature. Privacy is created through the immediate environment, being nestled amongst the rainforest, and also by a bamboo screen created between structural columns. On a physical and emotional level, it is about opening up to the landscape and feeling oneself part of the cycles of nature.
