Sounds interesting? Great!

We have built some furniture before, we have built houses. We have put our furniture into our houses. Worked great. But now we have come to a point where we need to build small and affordable houses where we don’t have enough space available to put everything. We need to cut corners, smoothen edges and become ingenious in hiding stuff away to fit a house with everything that’s needed.

Are you a student in design, a furniture carpenter, an interior architect? Student of such with a wish for a thesis project? Look no further. Email us.

You have a degree in architecture? Here we go.

We are in the dire need for someone to push us forward. We have built huts, houses and domes, but there is a limit to what you can come up with, when you have not studied architecture.

We are grateful for all who have a superior knowledge of space and a which to get to know a still uncommon but increasingly popular material. We have some special perks ready for you.

Look no further, get in touch.

You know your way around plants? Yes, yes, yes … here we go!

We are starting a bamboo research farm, where we need to find out which bamboos can be (economically) cultivated in our area, which has a niche climate. The traditional local forest type is Tropical Dry Evergreen (TDEF) which has some bamboos and they grow well here, however they are not the best to work with. Hence, we would like to grow some other species. Let’s make them a nice home.

I [volunteered] at Bamboo Centre, helping with communications and workshop coordination. Bamboo Centre has provided me with a great opportunity to be a part of the family, helping to share the gift of bamboo with the world. I’ve learned so many life lessons being here and can’t wait to bring the Auroville energy back to the U.S. with me. I’m sure I’ll be back to Auroville and Bamboo Centre soon.

We had a great experience working here. They are very welcoming and homely people. We heard a lot in a very short span. We’d love to come back and work with you!
