Building a place from a few pages of architectural drawings and remaining true to aspirations of being as ecological as possible was no easy task. The ‘eco-process’, from right in a clockwise direction.


i. Clearing unwanted palm trees & keeping surrounding greenery.


ii. Salvaging wood from demolition of old school.


iii. Salvaging boards and more wood from an old cocoa barn..


iv. Using bamboo from nearby and getting a local to weave walls.


v. Using dead Belian tree for timber.


vi. Discovering old selangan batu and getting villagers to chainsaw it.


These are just some of the examples of the details that have come to shape PAGANAKAN DII and its aim to be a Natural Retreat.
