The Nam Et-Phou Louey Biodiversity Conservation Area in northern Laos, Vietnam is going to be the site for breath-taking eco-lodges that hang from trees. The eco-lodges will be built near the Nam Poung village and will allow visitors to observe and engross themselves within the amazing landscape. Cole Company are leading this community design project with the aim to increase eco-tourism and jobs for local villagers.
The eco-lodges are made from bamboo and timber and were inspired by bird and insect nests. Lightweight, hydrophobic fabric protects guests from rain and a mosquito net lines the interior of the cabin. Two people can fit quite easily into the suspended nests.
Cole Companyís project also includes an elevated bamboo and timber observation deck, which allows guests to have superb views of the wildlife. It is one of the last places where tigers are able to roam in Southeast Asia.
