~Great for campfires!~

The Chinese idiom  ” to be like a fish in water ” (如鱼得水) inspired the design of our outdoor amphitheatre space. 

Envisioned as two fishes encircling each other in constant motion, the earth bunds create an undulating, flowing landform that gently hugs the amphitheatre space, making this a condusive environment for various types of group activities. 

Like fish in water, we believe that a close relationship with Nature can bring out the best of one’s natural talents. To swim or not to swim, the many possibilities of how this space can be used is up to your own imaginations!

~A Net-Zero Energy Building - Our Kampung's Pride!~

GUI’s very first building – where you can find the boardroom, administrative areas and working space for GUI’s core team and education partners.

The HeartQuarters (HQ) rises from the footprint of the previous building by Bottle Tree Park, features simple geometry, and works with the elements. Designed as a net-zero energy building with a low carbon footprint, the HQ maximises natural lighting and ventilation while its generous height lets heat and humidity escape.


~Farm our land, farm our hearts~

One of our farming areas uniquely designed like a maze. We are committed to organic certification (certified by NASAA – the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia) and practising non-chemical; natural farming methods.

Kampung Backyard

~Nature's kitchen - with a million-dollar view~

“Makan is our most intimate connection with the Earth.”

Our communal kitchen area where we cook together, eat together and clean up together.

Making Space

~A space for making~

A space that encourages craftmanship and the love of making with your hands, and more importantly, finding inner space within oneself for creativity and joy.

Featuring Touchwood and our office containers, this is a place that aspires to incubate innovative social enterprises with the GUI ecosystem.
