A project which is unique for our country, challenging stereotypes. Environmentally friendly house thought fully to details, where the concept of comfort acquires a special meaning.
Greenery of green
With a love for relaxation
Peace and security
Roof Reed roofing is a rarity for our country, although it should be noted that this technology is far from new. One of the most environmentally friendly, durable and aesthetically beautiful coatings has a number of specific advantages. Firstly, the ideal noise insulation: neither rain nor birds will disturb your peace. Secondly, an enviable moisture resistance: thanks to a special technique of laying, the reed does not succumb to putrefaction, fungus and moss germination. Thirdly, the reed roof has a special relationship with the air: the space formed during laying keeps heat and ensures natural ventilation.
Path to the house Only natural materials can combine so ideal! Look how unusual, and at the same time, looks beautifully the path leading to your future home! This is a crushed gabbro-diabase stone, mined in a hundred kilometers from Almaty, and larch boards. The stone has excellent thermal insulation properties: it easily accumulates, and then gives off heat, longer retains its appearance than many other species. Larch, in turn, is differentiated by increased wear resistance and even bactericidal properties. Well, in tandem – this is a harmonious landscape technique.
Wall Clay, sand, lime, water are four simple components, studied for centuries, tested by generations of builders. The walls, plastered with such a composition, are characterized by cleanliness in all respects. Moreover, plaster based on lime has high refractory and antifungal properties, thermal insulation properties. Another plus to the treasury of the ideal microclimate of your home!
Window frames and doors The windows of our house manufactured in Kazakhstan by a company with twenty years of experience are made of natural wood and high-strength glass. This combination perfectly protects the premises from bad weather and external noise. Thanks to the thoughtful design and controlled manufacturing technique, our windows are airtight, environmentally friendly and durable. And of course, you can’t fail to notice that the windows in the wooden frames look just magnificent! Elegant and practical detail, evidencing about the impeccable taste of the owner.
Switches Beauty, as it is known, in detail, and in such, as this porcelain retro-switch, is also a weighty functionality. After all, this natural material, used for centuries, is durable, and sudden electrical manifestations, such as a spark, for example, are completely undangerous. By the way, such a minimalistic and practical classic is now at the height of fashion.
Central built-in vacuum cleaner This is not a novelty, but in the realities of domestic construction, it almost never met before. The central cleaning system is arranged in the basement of the house, which ensures silence during cleaning in your space. In each room there is an outlet for connection. Just simply insert the hose into a special outlet and press the button. Dust moves through pipelines built-in into the walls without leaving a trace in your house. Other advantages include the fact that nothing needs to be transferred, cleaned and stored. It’s hard to come up with something else against this convenience!
Stairs Another variety of wood in the interior of your future house is native Asian karagach. Such a ladder will last for several decades, because the karagach is famous for its strength and durability. Silky shine and a clear texture of wood add charm to the product, and karagach even after processing emanates a subtle aroma that acts on a person as an antidepressant.
Plinth An elegant design solution with a practical background. Sisal rope is obtained from the agave leaves of a special variety, which is common in tropical and subtropical countries. Virtually, it is unaffected by moisture, durable, resistant to thermal and ultraviolet radiation, does not accumulate static electricity. This unusual element of decor is absolutely safe for the environment.
Floor Larch boards, in our opinion, are the ideal floor covering. This wood is incredibly practical: high density and special composition of it's resin provide protection against decay, mold, fungus, pest attacks and other adversities. Larch practically does not burn, so this tree is fireproof. Well, the natural beauty of the texture of the wood itself will delight the eye every day.
Lamps Lighting is one of the main secrets of a harmonious interior. You can create an amazing atmosphere with the help of the right light accents. We tried to do this for you by inviting a designer Marina Captainova, a graduate of the International School of Design “Art Nouveau”, to design the lamps.
Wall Perhaps, this is the most special part of our Project! The walls of straw bale houses first in the country are erected from a larch frame, filled with thatched blocks. Yes, yes, it is straw that ensures a perfect microclimate in the house, in which it is not cold in winter and it is not hot in summer, that is, you do not need to install expensive climatic and ventilation equipment. In addition, the house from straw blocks has impressive earthquake resistance, which any other structure in our city hardly can boast of!
Doors These wooden doors are our little pride, because they are made here in our own mini-shop in Almaty. Masters invested their souls in them, well, and nature awarded with high strength and durability. Moreover, the doors of wood have wonderful soundproofing properties, which is important for creating comfort and tranquility in the house. By the way, the service life of a quality wooden door is at least 30 years, so that perhaps, your children’s children will appreciate this beautiful and reliable thing.
How thick are the panels?
Our panels have a depth of 600 mm.
Width 800 mm.
Height 300 mm.
How many rooms are there in the house?
Living rooms - 5
Mansard - 1
Sanitary facilities - 4
Laundry room - 1
Wardrobe rooms - 2
Technical room - 1
Is there a parking?
There is a parking place, designed for the total number of houses in the territory of our complex.
Where will my children play?
We also have envisaged this important issue, so we built a mini-children’s town from environmentally friendly materials, which is very important for the younger generation.
There are horizontal bars, hills, climbing devices at the playground; altogether all that is needed for the enthusiastic mood and health of our children.
Straw contains very little nutritional value and itself will not support the pest population. The density of straw prevents the activity of rodents. Rodents can only penetrate when the panel is damaged, and the straw is open to the outside atmosphere. Lime has an aseptic further reduction in the probability of damage and infection by rodents.
In addition, electromagnetic jump scares were installed.
And of course, since we are a “LIVE” company, respectively we adhere to natural selection. We have several cats in the territory.
Will the straw decompose?
The straw blocks are designed for air permeability and prevent the formation of a high level of humidity, which causes decomposition. Straw begins to decompose when the moisture content exceeds 25%. Surveys conducted by ModCell® Company showed that the moisture content in the straw block is less than 15%, which is well below the level at which decomposition becomes a potential risk.
We have several conclusions from KazNIISA and other institutions, and of course, there are recommendations for strengthening several sections that have been fully implemented, where there were transfer requirements, everything has been transferred. After each redesign, we again summoned experts to acknowledge the correctness of the work performed.
For today, this house stood – three (3) years. It has proven itself perfectly.
Also, we want to add that seismic resistance tests of Straw Bale House were carried out at the University of Nevada in 2009. Eventually:
A straw house with 14 x 14-feet dimensions, complete with a gravel foundation and clay plastered walls, was exposed to seisms exceeding earthquake seisms by 200% recorded in 1994, in Northridge, California (6.7 points). This was the largest measured acceleration of the earth in the world.
After a series of more than seven strong tests, eventually the house was shaking and swinging violently, cracking at the seams, and created a small cloud of dust and straw ... but remained standing!

What is distinctive in your house from everyone else?
The straw blocks are tightly packed and have a lime finish with sand. Fire, however, needs a ready source of oxygen for combustion, and without it combustion will not occur. The blocks provide an almost airless environment, so the fire resistance is very good. Lime, applied according to Straw Bale House technology, on the straw block has a two-hour and 15-minute fire-time reserve.
Yet with these positive properties our type of structure refers to the to the average degree of fire resistance.And here, the 4th level fire safety system for those living in the house has been carefully thought through and made. Sensors and smoke detectors operate for detection and notification of a fire, and installed in all rooms.
The first level is Fire Extinguishers located in a conspicuous place, as the first method of fighting fire.
The second level is the Spray Gun.
The third level is the Dry Pipe System, which runs along the perimeter of all buildings, including 6 fire hoses and hydrants. In the yard, there is a station with a fire-fighting capacity of 25 m3, which is sufficient for 1 hour of extinguishing the fire.
And the fourth level is a Sprinkler Fire Extinguishing System.
Accordingly, all measures for fire safety are certainly elaborated and implemented. The nearest fire station has been notified, they know about us and we own all the fire station phones
What is the total area of the town-house?
How long was the house built?
Construction began in 2011, in 2012 there was a break until 2014 and then construction continued until 2017.
Autonomous, gas heating
the city's main, plus additional water filtration is carried out with the AquaFor column.
Location-why is this place chosen?
Our approach to building a house was based on environmental friendliness and health.
It's not a secret that the mountainous terrain differs from the lower part of the city with the cleanest air and freshness. And of course, to fully comply with our direction, we chose this location
Russian telecommunications company, which provides communication services under the brand name "OBIT".
Is there a built-in technique?
There is built-in vacuum cleaner AERTECNICA STUDIO TS2
The central cleaning system is arranged in the basement of the house, which ensures silence during cleaning in your space. In each room there is an outlet for connection. Simply insert the hose into a special outlet and press the button. Dust moves through pipelines built into the walls without leaving a trace in your house.

What is distinctive in your home from everyone else?
And it is very important that our house "breathes"
Having become acquainted with the technology of construction from straw blocks, wooden logs and from building materials of organic origin, we realized that all issues are solved automatically - by the nature of the building material. As a result, the molecular structure of organic materials, it is plastic, it expands when heated, and when it contracts, it eventually breathes.
Lime is very alkaline. PH, humidity and air vary from the breathing of walls from straw, prevent fungal and microbial activity.
Due to the applied engineering solutions, there are no "cold bridges" in the house, which means that there is no moisture, fungi and mold destroying the finish.
This is a big PLUS compared to conventional buildings, where there is a problem of freezing corners.
