Imagine a world where the materials to build your house don't travel halfway around the world. Where you know a forest where the trees that make up your house are cut down.
The Kloboucká Lesní headquarters represents the basic ideals of sustainable construction on thousand square metres. The building highlights the current themes and potentials of ecological construction and pays attention to the opportunities and challenges that await us in the future.The headquarters of Kloboucká lesní is not just the administrative base of a progressive company, it is a laboratory. It explores how houses can be built faster, how to work with energy and materials so that we don't burden nature in their production, during their lifespan, but also in their disposal at the end of their life cycle. Not a drop of water is wasted, not a joule of energy is wasted, and every experience is used for further development.
In the Czech Republic, two thousand timber buildings are built per year, which corresponds to about half a percent of the total timber production in the Czech Republic. Our ambition is to multiply this tiny amount so that we can make smart use of the potential that offers itself and build houses that are not only ecological in terms of savings on heating. We want to look at the process of building with wood from a distance, to understand the principles and connections, and to put it back together again under this new lens.
For The Kloboucká lesní company, understanding the processes that follow the woodworking itself is essential for the company's further development. The current scope of the company's production is rooted in a slogan that describes working with wood as a process from the planting of the seed to the final product, the planed plank.
Thanks to the experience gained in the laboratory, we want to look further ahead together. The philosophy of sustainability, economy and social responsibility shows us further possibilities and potentials for development. At a time when the construction industry is blocked by bureaucracy, lack of materials and people, it is the right time to start again. Environmentally, efficiently and economically. Let's capitalize on our experience and build such houses!
