Frequently Asked Questions
The choice of which materials you want to use will depend on the building you are looking to build. But when considering materials, bamboo should always be on the list. There is no other material on the planet that can match the balance bamboo strikes when it comes to tensile strength, design beauty, structural flexibility, lifespan, and positive environmental impact.
Bamboo is indeed strong. It has a very similar strength-to-weight ratio to that of steel. But when it comes to construction strength, steel will always come out on top.
Traditionally bamboo was known as a short lifespan building material. But with today's treatment methods, bamboo has become and extremely durable building material.
Yes, it is. Bamboo is known to grow up to 4cm per day. Which roughly translated means that once it starts growing, you can have a building-ready, structural column within 3-years. And to top it all off, the word in the jungle is that the more you harvest it, the faster it grows!

“I am very happy with the entire process. The attention to detail and imagination for design is 10 out of 10. The methodology was of a very high standard. We were impressed, especially with the initial cardboard design and the transformation to a full 3D view. It allowed us to see every angle early on.”
"When we first met Willian we had a vague idea of the house dreamed of building. Willian patiently guided us from A-Z, from the first concept, to choosing the best mix of materials to bring the building to live."
