Bamboo Forest House by Roewu Architecture

By • Apr 26, 2011 •  Selected Work 

London-based studio Roewu Architecture has completed the Bamboo Forest House, a vacation house in eastern Taiwan.

Located in a dense urban area and confined on two sides by blank party walls the house must gain all its light and air from the street while maintaining privacy and security.

Designed to accommodate an extended family, the house has an unusual exterior with its bamboo screen.
