Dusun Bambu Family Leisure Park is an integrated Eco and Cultural Tourism Destination in West Java. Located just outside of Lembang in the highlands and featuring fresh air, a natural environment and panoramic views, the Site provides a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life in Bandung and Jakarta. The Site’s diverse, nature inspired and culturally sensitive programme of activities is highly family oriented and attracts just over a million visitors annually. Due to its high popularity, the Owner wishes to review its current operations and layout, add more facilities and expand the overall development. The Vision for the Project is to become the leading eco, cultural and educational tourism destination, not only in West Java, but within the South East Asia Region.
Inspired by the strong Vision and mission, TOWNLAND worked closely with the Owner-operator and others to develop a unique concept to elevate Dusun Bambu’s branding and identity. This was achieved by weaving strong thematic traditional stories and values into the overall development of the Master Plan, its landscape and architectural elements, as well as facilities and activities.
The concept is inspired by the captivating storyline of ‘9 Pusaka’ (the 9 Relics, a storyline inspired by Sundanese Folklore). This is translated onto the Site by creating several spatial zones. Each of them is infused with uniquely different themes, facilities and activities. And, as a reference to the Dusun Bambu name, each zone will be characterized by a different species of bamboo. The overall facilities and programme will include integrated pedestrian circulation with sequential experiences, culinary spots, traditional play-gardens, an outdoor performance stage, an arboretum and a variety of outdoor play areas, as well as a cultural museum. All of these are supported by carefully-designed landscape features that use modern technology to enable sustainable development.
