Grow a GHome for the Future
Since completing the successful and healthy Bloo Lagoon Eco Village in Bali I have applied my skills to creating the GHome.studio for the future creative individual who also wishes to connect and contribute their own unique skills to the benefit of mankind. During the last 4 years prototypes have been assembled and we now invite you to build your own. It is an open sourced creation where each participant contributes to the advancement of the design in a synergetic and unique manner. The GHome.studio is primarily a collective creation where all participants share their experiences for the benefit of all as each individual is composed of unique experiences, and these can be transmitted to others through the senses, love, books, film, art, building, making, performance etc.
The word family stems from the Latin familia meaning a group of slaves and relatives commanded by a paterfamilias. Family roles we consider today to be strictly natural: the titles of father, mother, son, or heir had nothing to do with biology and everything to do with the rationale of preserving the ownership, and thus the order, of the house. The GHome is not a regular family home. The 2019 GHome.studio is a temple for creation and is already supporting residents in their endeavours to connect through nature to the very amazing miracle of the universe in which we reside and possibly co-create. So let’s understand, get together again, and work with our nature not against it. Luckily we are now feeling the often uncomfortable forces of change and are being forced to become aware through facing the big problems of living in this great energy machine and will soon fully comprehend its beauty. The process of becoming one again with nature has begun and is subject to powerful and fast synergetic effects of both destruction and creation. Time to all ride the waves.

Yuval Harari, books and You Tube talks.
Each GHome.Studio building shall improve the product and though analysis preferred options shall become obvious. New members will join. Using the experience from the first round to build more and improved models, as a result of real time feedback and monitoring.

Idea visualized and design developed by Tony Gwilliam.
Prototype built at Lodtunduh, Ubud, Bali, using diagonal plan and standard construction.
Upon completion and testing prototype moved to Bloo Lagoon Eco village.
Bloo Lagoon tropical prototype constructed, completed and lived in, with fabric roof, tension floors, thatch and green walls.
Bloo Lagoon prototype dismantled for new series of experiments.
New prototype constructed with walls of recycled wine and beer bottles, recycled teak shutters from old Javanese houses and a roof of curved corrugated metal.
VR and smart house systems were installed and the demo house was inhabited for showing and feedback.
Design and Construction of first global GHomes begins in Costa Rica and other locations.
A possible artists village in Indonesia,
A proposal to exhibit a house of the future.
From here the global GHome shall evolve naturally around the planet, becoming ever more intelligent with each build.
