bambubuild interprets pure varieties into trendy design
Within the coronary heart of Lengthy Thành, a rising district in rural Vietnam, the newly constructed Keeng Seafood Restaurant exemplifies BambuBuild‘s progressive structure and development abilities. Acknowledged directly by its dramatic and complex bamboo construction topped by a boat-shaped thatched roof, the undertaking introduces a visible landmark throughout the evolving city panorama. Supported by bamboo constructions paying homage to nipa palms — a well-known riverside plant in southern Vietnam — the design integrates conventional components from the pure context with trendy design.

The architects at BambuBuild confronted a singular problem within the design of the Keeng Seafood Restaurant — to create a sculptural work of structure whereas adhering to environmentally-friendly ideas and environment friendly development. The bottom ground plan of the bamboo corridor, accommodating as much as 180 friends, lends simplicity in design, strategic accessibility, and a fluid reference to the adjoining annex home.
Responding to the proprietor’s mandate for a powerful and eco-conscious construction, BambuBuild embraced bamboo as each a structural and ornamental part. Using ‘strong bamboo,’ which the group refers to as ‘iron bamboo,’ highlighted its stiffness and energy, making it a perfect alternative for development. Conventional bamboo poles remodeled into posts, beams, and trusses, forming a hyperbolic paraboloid floor — a doubly-curved construction famend for its structural effectivity and aesthetic qualities.

The thatched hyperbolic paraboloid roof
The bamboo corridor is formed by BambuBuild’s progressive use of hyperbolic paraboloid surfaces as ceilings and columns. Interconnected and interlocked, these components enable the roof to increase as much as a powerful 4 meters (13 toes) on the gable. The doubly-curved and doubly-ruled nature of those surfaces, simply constructed from straight bamboo poles, facilitated an environment friendly development course of. The double curvature of the hyperbolic paraboloid posed a problem in roofing with pure thatch resulting from its convex and concave varieties. The architects addressed this difficulty by incorporating trusses and purlins on the concave facet, making a easy sloped roof. This two-layer structural roof each solved the roofing dilemma whereas to the visible attract of the ceiling.
