The construction in Tahiti naturally brings the outside inside. For example bungalows in South Pacific are mainly built of materials, which come from a radius of 30 km. Craftsman call it the mother nature.

Here is a collection of bungalows in the South Seas-style, you will surely impress.


On the picture we see the outside of beach bungalows on a small island in French Polynesia, in the seaside resort of Ninamu. The Manager Chris O’Callaghan has built each individual bungalow itself with resources of the island: Driftwood stairs, woven Pandan leaves roofs, bamboo support beams. Some roofs and walls are made of coral. Ninamu is an ideal example, how to use natural materials can – there no trees were cut down, no coral reef has been damaged.

We enter now. You can see hardly a flat surface. Bamboo joints, wooden planks and exotic woven things are quite unexpectedly, as for example on the wall, on the roof.

Natural shapes and materials

These woven things actually are coconut leaves and pandus leaves. O’Callaghan has used Ironwood, lychee wood, Tamanuholz, coconut wood, Kohuholz and machined softwood in the bungalows.¬† He says that he pellets the wood by dampness in the ocean for three weeks.
