Additional Location Information
Set within a river valley landscape along Bali’s sacred Ayung River, a master-planned community located within walking distance to the Green School is being designed and constructed based on the architectural concepts of sustainable principles and artisan craftsmanship that helped create the world famous campus.
According to Elora Hardy, CEO and lead designer for the Bali-based bamboo design and construction company honored as a finalist of the 2010 Aga Khan Award for Architecture, “Even sustainable timber can’t begin to compare with bamboo as a conscientious building material. With very few resources or attention a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years, and that house could stand strong for a lifetime.”
Born in Bali and educated in the U.S., Hardy honed her design skills as sole print designer for fashion icon, Donna Karan, in New York City before moving back home in 2010.
“We are committed to changing people’s perspective on the infinite potential of bamboo,” she says. “Creating spaces where people can feel connected to nature without disrupting it is a thrilling design challenge for me.”
Located twenty-five minutes to Bali’s cultural center of Ubud, 35 minutes to Bali’s surfing beaches and within walking distance to the Green School campus, currently home to 280 day and boarding students, the Green Village community has attracted homeowners from all over the world including South America, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia as well as prominent visitors including entrepreneur, Richard Branson, and former Prime Minister of England, Tony Blair’s family.
Claire Burgess, a New Zealand native who is based in Vietnam as Regional Director of a Swiss-based corporation, says she found Green Village while in the market for a property in Ubud. “I fell in love with Green School and the concept of living in a home totally made out of bamboo.”
Burgess customized her villa with design accents and finishes created by Elora and her team including naturally black bamboo flooring, hand hammered copper bath fixtures, custom pieces from Ibuku’s home furnishings line and a lagoon shaped plunge pool set against the backdrop of the coconut grove and river below.
“Our homes are designed and built without disturbing the natural integrity of the land, therefore each home is truly unique. Our homeowners enjoy a global environment within a culturally rich Balinese community with access to world-class amenities including home delivery of some of the best organic products available on the planet from Big Tree Farms, owned by a Green School family, as well as events including the Ubud Readers & Writers Festival and restaurants like Mozaic; one of Southeast Asia’s most notable culinary destinations.”
“Our view on being green comes out of being logical, doing no harm and being conscientious,” says Hardy. “By utilizing sustainable materials and artisan craftsmanship mixed with social responsibility, we have created a unique development concept.
A percentage of every villa sold is contributed to Green School’s Balinese Student Scholarship Fund that has already provided 15% of our current student body with a tuition free education. ”

We had a wonderful, relaxing week at the Green Village. As a party of seven we rented two houses and lived between the two. The accommodation was beautiful and luxurious - you wouldn't believe what they can do with bamboo. The staff were helpful and friendly, in particular Eva who looked after our every need and was always on hand with advice and recommendations. Recommend engaging a cook while you are there as the village is slightly remote and shops not obvious, though you can order meals on an ad hoc basis from a menu in the houses. Highly recommended.
