SAE LAO Project natural buildings

Our Natural Buildings

All of our buildings have been constructed using locally sourced natural materials, such as recycled wood, bamboo, mud and rocks from the region. We construct using traditional local methods.

Community Centre and Short Term Dormitory

Our community centre and dormitory for the short term volunteers has been constructed using mud bricks made from mud on-site along with stones and reclaimed timber.


Our latest building is the most sustainable so far. Designed by our on-site architect in collaboration with our Lao staff, our guesthouse for long term volunteers provides living space for people staying over 6 months. It is also an example of environmentally friendly, natural building for the local community.
