It was Studio Jencquel’s initial concept/idea to conceive a convex roofline that would solve some of the ergonomic requirements needed for an indoor badminton court. At the center of the court, above the net, a height of 9m is required, and therefore the ceiling of this court was to mimic the trajectory of a shuttle-cock, resulting in a turtle-like curved shape. Other considerations affecting the shape and height of this roof where the need to allow airflow for cooling, while simultaneously stopping the wind, which would interfere with the shuttlecock’s flight. That’s why the buildings orientation was positioned in consideration of the predominant wind patterns, and the roof almost grazes the ground on two of its extremities.

在热带地区，以竹子为材料实现这种有机形态的建筑是显而易见的最佳选择。Studio Jencquel的创始人Maximilian Jencquel与IBUKU工作室的朋友Elora Hardy达成合作，共同为概念方案设计了结构。Elora Hardy是巴厘岛乃至世界范围内最有经验、最专业的竹设计师，她的团队不仅为项目提出了令人惊喜的篮状编织结构，也作为竹艺匠人，一并承担了实际的建设工作。

Bamboo was the obvious choice for such an organically shaped building in the tropics. Studio Jencquel’s founder Maximilian Jencquel approached his friend Elora Hardy from @ibukubali, the most experienced and professional bamboo designers/ builders on Bali (and probably the world) to help design a structure for the aforementioned concept. Elora and her team came up with this intriguing, basket-like woven structure, which they not only conceived, but also built with their amazing team of bamboo carpenters.
