Kura Kura

Kura Kura is the name of a building that houses a badminton court and has a floor surface of over 200 square meters. Inspired by the shape of a tortoise shell, the large bamboo structure was designed and built in a collaboration between Ibuku and Studio Jencquel. The court is privately owned by Maximilian Jencquel and was completed in 2016. The pavilion is built entirely from bamboo (structure and all roofing), except for the floor, which is from a special rubber resin. The roof structure is built following an ergonomic shape and a height of 9 meters, allowing for an uninterrupted trajectory of the shuttlecock.
