“The main idea of the building is to use natural ecologically compatible materials in a new modern form so that they will mirror globalization of the modern world architectural process at the same time harmoniously fitting into the environment. That is why the object’s roof is made of straw which is the most ecologically compatible roofing material and which does not require any additional activities (on hydraulic or steam insulation). Cob and pise are also widely used for wall-making, and of course they are also ecologically safe and cost-saving materials” — underlines the author.
