Cluster ‘lombok domes’ eco-village builds up along Indonesian coast
an isolated “eco-village” of adobe domes accumulates along the coral coasts of the indonesian island of lombok. the team behind the domes of lombok is looking to bring a shared housing solution to the island that is built and occupied with respect for the environment. the completed first phase of village development sees nine domes surrounding a restaurant, swimming pool and co-working space, with the second phase of nine additional domes underway and due to be completed this winter. nestled strategically along a hill near the town of gerupuk, the village overlooks a breathtaking panoramic view of the white sand coastline.

each accommodation within Indonesia lombok dome the eco-village is built with stacked sacks of earth finished with natural plaster. these natural and sustainably sourced materials, combined with the use of solar panels and a recycled gray water system, make the growing village an off-grid, design-driven destination to promote ecotourism. The team comments on the design-build process: ‘we’ve certainly faced challenges along the way, but we stay true to our principles and do our best to be as environmentally friendly as possible. every time we build, we learn from the dome that came before it. new things about sustainability are being discovered all the time, where we can incorporate them into existing domes and where we cannot ensure that they will be included in future designs“.
the creative team behind dome lombok partners with puraworka, which seeks to shape work into an art of living by giving people access to ecosystem services in beautiful coworking destinations around the world. the collaborative team seeks to present the perfect office in paradise and will launch the first coworking space in lombok in winter 2020.
