Vertical farming company iFarm is constructing a high-tech vertical farm in the new and innovative community of Nuanu, Indonesia. Located on the Balinese coastline, Nuanu is a collaboration of creative minds living and working together to develop a sustainable ecosystem.
iFarm and the Nuanu community are inviting architects to submit designs for the new futuristic farm, a core feature of Nuanu’s drive for functional green practices. The design of the facility should align with the eco-friendly biometric architecture style of Nuanu, whether it’s GreenZen or Naturatecture, with the winning design constructed on site.
Launching at the end of 2023, the new vertical farm is expected to yield around 2.5 tonnes of high-quality vegetables and leafy greens each month.
The project aims to ensure a year-round supply of locally grown, high quality produce, creating a regenerative farming model for the project’s future development.
Visitors to the farm will be able to watch the crops being grown and purchase them on site should they wish. Local groceries will also stock the leafy produce for Nuanu’s residents to purchase.
It is hoped that the automated farm’s biometric eco-architecture style and will become one of the symbols of the town’s commitment to sustainability, environmental regeneration, and food safety.
“Since the inception of iFarm, our aim has always been to produce ultra-fresh crops in a way that does no harm to the environment, contributing to the biodiversity and abundance of nature. That is why we are excited to nurture an innovative approach to food production by constructing a farm that will inspire a sustainable future for Nuanu residents and visitors and foster further agricultural transformations in Indonesia and on a global scale.” says iFarm CEO, Alexander Lyskovsky.
