The Three Stacks eco-hotel

The hotel looks like something out of a forest fairytale but the technology behind it is anything but unattainable. These conical wood, cane, clay and grass-thatched structures proposed for the hotel uses energy-efficient lighting and architectural form that is native to the region.

The design consists of three buildings, a concept which is intended for various heritage sites around the Ukraine. Two of the project’s buildings will offer four-storey guest accommodation, while the other building will house a restaurant.

The structures will be made from natural materials, which we hope will be sourced locally, and it is stated on the project’s design site that the curving fence which weaves throughout the property will the link the three buildings through modern energy-efficient lighting in combination with landscape elements which are also native to the region. Thus ensuring that as little damage to the natural environment as possible.

Preservation of traditional building knowledge, techniques and locally-appropriate building technology is vitally important to sustainability in the long run. It is the simple principle of working with your surrounding environment, not fighting it and causing more damage.

Building has yet to start but this is a fine example of how you can keep up local traditions while doing your bit for the environment. The natural materials and energy efficient lighting are great features but we are hoping that if this project gets built that it showcases even more eco-friendly design elements.
