Custom Bamboodist

It would be fair to say that Bamboo Living have tasted a significant amount of success in the prefabs industry over time, with the company establishing themselves as one of the biggest and most reputable in the field. Bearing this in mind, one won't be surprised to hear that the architects have ventured into other sectors, most notably custom design. This area of their business is named Custom Bamboodist and just like all of their prefab offerings, Bamboo Living are starting to make headway and put together a catalogue of impressive projects in this area.

What is the unique selling point about Custom Bamboodist?

Unquestionably, the unique selling point is in the name. It could be said that practically every prefab offering out there is a sustainable property, with all of the architects working towards the same energy efficient goals. However, Bamboo Living have been able to go a step further with their catalogue, with the buildings making use of one material that is classed as one of the most renewable in the world - bamboo. Furthermore, there are no flexibility issues when it comes to bamboo, meaning that customers can still have their dream home built - only in a hugely sustainable material.

Who is behind the Custom Bamboodist concept?

Anyone that is unaware of the David Sands collection should probably check it out at this point. It will be especially useful for those individuals who are considering a Custom Bamboodist and wish to see just what design principles Sands takes on board when he puts together a new design. The following are some of his more popular prefab offerings:

  • Celestial
  • Ohana
  • Bali
  • Polynesian
  • Pacific
  • North Shore

While all bare a lot of similarities due to the emphasis on bamboo, it can definitely be said that Sands has the ability to design a range of different types of buildings. All of the above vary substantially when you delve into the specification, with Sands also able to produce various floor plan sizes for each design. Therefore, taking this information into account, it can be established that any Custom Bamboodist will not be like any standard prefab out there - it will be completely unique to the customer.

How much does a Custom Bamboodist design cost?

This really relates to how long is a piece of string, as the cost of a customer's project will depend entirely on the brief they hand over to the design team. However, Bamboo Living at least publish some information, with the company stating that the minimum cost of one of their custom homes is $100 - with architect and engineering fees added to this total.
