JOSHUA’S DISTRICT, a centre of inspiration, creativity, built from shipping containers. This space is an ambitious space that started from a daring question of “What do you think about building something special in Bali—a villa in rice fields—villa from shipping containers? Are you down?” An instantaneous and spontaneous answer—Let’s do it—started it all. After never-ending discussions and night talks, a vision of building centre of creativity standing in rice, something special, inspiring and creative has been formed.
At that moment when the owners were standing in rice fields in the middle of a construction site of containers house, no one was able to clearly name what is going to happen and what concept it is going to be. The empty container houses were standing there, waiting for us to repurpose them. And this is how they built a centre of creativity in Bali. They had that vision of building a place where people can improve the current state of things, and leave a positive mark in our minds. They also knew that we wanted to share this place with inspiring people to be surrounded by encouraging energy.
Trying to improve the current state of things and leave a positive mark. It is a unique place in Bali in the middle of rice paddies, where everything is green, peaceful & virgin. The best part? The closest beach—the Pigstone beach where you can find fun waves for all suffer — is 800m away.
Their philosophy is to convert waste materials into new mediums and objects. Recycling prevents the waste of potentially useful materials and reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials. Recycle or Die is the motto and the creative waste material slogan represents what they have been doing in Bali — reducing the amount of waste by creating waste art and organising beach cleanups to minimise the impact of trash on Balinese nature. “Recycle or die”, there is no other option.
