Bamboo house designed to withstand floods

Bamboo house

Vietnamese studio H&P Architects has built a prototype bamboo house designed to withstand floods as it stands three metres above the ground.

The designers used tightly-packed rows of bamboo cane to build the walls, floors and roof of the Blooming Bamboo Home, along with difference between valium and xanax bamboo wattle, fibreboard and coconut leaves.

Elevated on stilts, the house is accessed using wooden ladders that lead to small decks. The area beneath can be used for keeping plants and animals but allows water to pass through in the event of a flood.
