Andriy Holub has designed a modern potter’s house for Opishnya village
Andriy Holub, an architect, has presented in his portfolio a design of a potter’s house which is intended to be built in Opishnya village of Poltava region. According to the author, his project has accumulated the features of the folk architecture, Trypillya architecture, neo-modernism and organic architecture.
“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.
The project foresees dwelling place for the potter’s family and his trainees; a workshop area for creation of pottery together with a warehouse; a library, a small shop, an exhibition hall and place behind the main entrance to arrange expositions during warm seasons.
The project was visualized by Olexandr Vovk.
