Nowadays, there’s a lot of ways you can make your own villa. And with the many kinds of technology that’s available now, a sustainable and eco-friendly house can be easily built. If you want to have some inspiration for your next sustainable building development in Bali, here are some ideas that may inspire your next architecture project in Bali.
Wooden houses with traditional architecture
The main advantages of creating a wooden house are the quick construction period and the excellent insulation provided by the raw materials. Furthermore, due to their flexibility, wooden structures are earthquake resistant and environmentally benign, as they are almost entirely recyclable. Wooden houses are non-permanent structures that are an excellent choice for leasehold title land plots. It is feasible to disassemble the house and move it to a new place after your land lease expires. What’s great is that wood is a great insulation for your home. So you don’t need to add more insulation to your house and can save power for air conditioning that’s used for the house. Wooden house with many style of architecture is common in Bali so definitely theres a lot of inspiration to choose
Using solar panel as source of electricity
Solar power systems use the sun as a source of energy to convert it to electricity. Installing solar panels on your buildings may help reduce greenhouse gas emissions because we’re not taking electricity from the power plan. Currently, electricity is traditionally made by burning fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are used to generate power, toxic gasses are released, which are the leading source of air pollution and global climate change. Fossil fuels is limited so it can be used forever, beside that the process of extracting it is bad not environmentally. Because of that price may raise and in a short time. You can also make your electric bill cheaper or even not paying for electricity. In Bali your roof is exposed to sunshine almost all year long, so you can maximise the architecture for your house to accomodate the solar panel with ease.
Recycling the water in your house
There are some water that you can recycle in your house, like the greywater. Which is used water from your bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines that has been gently filtered. It’s not water that’s been in contact with feces, whether from the toilet or from diaper cleaning. Dirt, food, grease, hair, and certain household cleaning chemicals may be found in greywater. While greywater maybe considered filthy or dirty by people, it is a harmless and even helpful source of irrigation water for a lawn. Greywater can also be reused for flushing toilets, and in washing machines.
Another simple ways of reducing the usage of water is to store rainwater which provide cleaner water than greywater but doesn’t have consistent supply for it. But still can be a great way to reduce clean water consumption in your buildings. Make sure to also consult your architect in Bali because installing it require proper planning.
