The “Bloo Lagoon” eco village, which was designed and constructed by architect Tony Gwilliam, is an attempt to provide sustainable lifestyle to the people of Bali, Indonesia. The idea is to allow people to share resources rather than owning individually, includes green buildings, gardens and swimming pool and aims to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible.
The buildings are planned in a way to encourage passive climate control, saving on energy and there are high-efficiency LED lights, simple refrigerators and natural gas cooking stoves. Energy is produced by solar cells and the rainwater is collected and filtered for use, while black water is treated biologically by waste water gardens which are integrated throughout the village.
Villagers also share the organic food produced in the village gardens.
