THE COCONUT LODGE in Hong Kong, China by OVA Studio Ltd

Harvested from plantations that procure income to millions of people, coconut wood is a sustainable product by excellence. The cycle of coconut production, felling/processing and re-plantation, guaranties a sound renewable supply that doesn’t impact the environment. After being used all their life coconuts, the trees become senile around 60 years old. They can then be cut and used for construction, furniture and decoration, which will constitute a windfall profit for the farmer and an excellent material for sustainable Architecture.

We based our module on the Japanese “ken” (1.8m) to ease the fitting out of the house as well as the off site prefabrication which is then based on multiple of this measurement.
