Eco-hotel «Friend House» is located on 3 hectares plot in forest resort zone aside of Orel river bank, 30 km far from Dnepr. It is a single-floor group of buildings with open yards, parking, terraces, garden and park zones (covered area 1750 square meters). During process of siting, an ineologycal analysis of the region was used, taking into account Earth energy –information field conception. It is space, reflected in details, surrounded by wildlife.
In this project were used exclusively ecological harmless materials: clay, reed and wood. Construction’s carcasses designed from wood and shell stone. Cobwork cocoons of room are united by the roof plate. All furniture and lighting are designed by project –manufacturing company «RYNTOVT DESIGN».
Intercommunicating with an environment – with forest, river, the ecocover of the buildings is in morphogenesis with natural landscape.
In blocks of "FriendHouse" unusual for citizen’s eye forms and materials adjoin with modern equipment, furniture, household appliances. Materials and construction technologies correspond to primordial architectural traditions of "mud huts": the one-storey houses united in blocks by the principle of "patio", are made of clay with use of a pine and covered with a cane. Forms of houses breathe a natural spontaneity of the organic chemistry which is almost excluding dry geometry of acute angles. As well as in each separate object of furniture, and in a construction in general, possibilities of material are most brightly shown: freakish forms of buildings seem molded manually, with the holes from fingers playing a role of windows. Massive boards of overlapping "press through" the clay, why the building "settles" and seems like a springy one.
The motive repeats in decoration of the walls of private numbers, with holes-windows, in an interior where mushroom columns molded from same "dough" are growing to a ceiling.
Another distinctive feature of this ecohotel is an apple tree garden. According to a beautiful local legend, a good farmer should necessary invite guests twice a year, first time during garden blossoming in spring and second time on Transfiguration Day, the lightful holiday. during gathering apples in summer.
