The modules are made of NATURAL, ecological materials that are healthy for users and the environment. The structure is KVH wooden frame, filled inside with an ecological insulation material – CELLULOSE FIBER. The modules are finished with natural larch board from the outside, underneath is air-open DWD wooden boards. The interior and façade are finished with natural clay and limestone paints, natural oils (which protect the wood), seals made of natural wool.
THE FOUNDATION that we use in our system is the steel spot footing. This has several advantages when compared to other types of foundation – it is less time consuming and has a smaller environmental footprint because of very small integration in to the soil. It is also easier to dismount such foundation and move it to another place. After some time there will be no trace of it in the original place and the ground will be beautifully overgrown with grass. Meanwhile, BioDomek will grow somewhere else.
At the turn of 2016/2018 eKodama with a group of contractors from the natural construction industry, built PROTOTYP by themselves, checking all designed solutions and details. We also organized a picnic opening the first BioDomek, with workshops and demonstrations promoting natural building and sustainable design.
