We are mindful of the plans we develop, and the coverage of grass allowed across each of our gardens. We manage interactions between the residential site and local flora and fauna. Our main goals are to improve the landscape soils, implement landscape strategies to mitigate flood risks, use permeable outdoor pathways, and ensure the landscape design is integrated with the architectural design.
We reduce the use of fossil fuels in the building process of our villas and focus on reducing pollution in the air, land, and, water. Efficiency in all aspects of our development allow us to allocate more resources that contribute to sustainable energy. There is no air conditioning, electrical stove, electrical hot water generation, incandescent bulbs, and no fossil fuel backup generators.
Instead, we use passive design for natural ventilation, gas stoves, heat pumps, LED bulbs, timer connected pumps, and gravity tanks for water. We also research and implement lifecycle cost analysis to inform long-term decision making for our energy consumption. Other future steps include using solar panels, customizing electricity meters, and reducing light pollution.
We respect Lombok’s freshwater resources by preserving, treating, and recycling its water. We incorporate wastewater gardens, a centralized sewage water system, grey water for irrigation, black water treatment with bioseptic tanks, as well as installing metering systems to collect data and identify leaks.We use an efficient pool size with a double filtration system of sand and a diatomic filter.In our toilets we use a dual flush to consume less water. No waterfall showers are allowed.
In the drainage system, we make sure that the rainwater runs back into the soil. Our rain management plan is purposely designed to avoid water runoffs during heavy rain, as well as using surface water collection strategies during the rainy season.
We respect the land on which we build and demonstrate that by treating our waste responsibly. We make use of energy, humans, time, technology, and financial resources to achieve sustainable waste management. We start with small actions like providing a central food station for the workers during construction, so they don’t have to bring individual food packaging. In our homes, we use environmentally friendly cleaning and self-care products.
Upcycling debris is crucial, and partnering with local plastic waste depots gives value to the local economy. In addition to our sustainable infrastructure focus, we also incorporate a responsible and circular waste management plan for our customers.
