Passive design to minimise climate control energy consumption

First and foremost, building a sustainable villa needs the right architect. Villa Serena is built by Bambook studio, who specialised on sustainable architecture. We are very fortunate to found them.

In Lombok, electricity supply is not stable and it is expensive. The local solutions are small windows minimise direct sunlight goes into the house, and shiny tile flooring helps to cool down the indoor temperature. Therefore, the village houses consume very little electricity on indoor climate control.

For Villa Serena, we located on the hill overlooking the Kuta bay, we don’t want to put ourselves behind walls and small windows.

Passive design is the most important strategies we adopt, which allows us to take advantage of the natural environment landscape, passively control indoor climate without consuming energy.

Orientation | Shades | Breeze

Indonesian teak wood pergola in the east side shades the bedrooms from morning sunlight. Facing south, the villa does not get exposure to direct sunlight.

We have smaller windows and on the west side of each room to enhance ventilation.

Natural breeze ventilates the whole villa, the villa required very little energy on indoor climate control.

Once you set the house orientation right, the house save energy by itself.

Next. We will share what renewable energy we use.
