Much love and detail is in the elaborate designs of our finest carpenters. Mr. Idler produces original wines in very high quality, and the absence of herbicides and chemical pesticides was not to be compromised. Therefore, only a pure and original building material such as Thoma Holz100 came into question for his tasting room. If you are in the vicinity of Weinstadt-Strümpfelbach, stop for a drink of pure joie de vivre. www.weingut-idler.de
The Salzburg architect and landscape artist Matthias Würfel has expressed his deep-rooted appreciation of nature in "land-art" projects so far. Now he has developed an ecological living cube, which he builds with Thoma Holz100.
Following the motto "Nomen est Omen", Matthias Würfel developed a "living cube" with a holistic approach. The construction method should be healthy, ecological, valuable, compact and flexible. The architect referred to the geometric rules of the cube to combine energetic advantages with a playful freedom of design. The client can individually adapt the individual modules in different design grids to his needs.
"The building enables living in the material cycle of nature and is sustainable on all levels. This means not only the use of CO2-neutral natural materials, energy-efficient construction and heating with renewable energy sources, but also the saving of long transport routes in the manufacture and construction of the building, "says the architect.

For many, the dream of owning a house in the countryside is linked to the desire for health and exposure to nature. The choice of the main building material, one which does not burden the health, is particularly important.
The development of new building materials has progressed rapidly since the 1970s, and today everything seems technically feasible. But there is also a steadily rising number of health complaints, the causes of which could be traceable to the immediate living environment. Residual poisons found in some building materials and furniture can release polluting substances for years. They are considered as possible causes of allergies and other diseases as well. The health effects of evaporating plastics, foils of all kinds, solvents, adhesives and other construction chemicals are always posing new challenges.
The key point for a sustainable preventative measure of such avoidable diseases lies in the conscious decision for building with biologically harmless materials. For this reason, builders increasingly demand from planners, property developers or suppliers a full declaration of the processed material from resource, harvesting, and manufacturing. For Holz100, this list of declarations is short: wood. Holz100 is made entirely and exclusively of high quality wood.
With Holz100, not only does it surround its inhabitants with a completely unadulterated building material, Holz100 also strengthens your immune system, calms your vital nervous systems and helps you to live longer. Wooden rooms are so reassuring to our body systems that every night (proven scientifically), we save ourselves an hour of heartbeats each day.
These and other new research results on the health-promoting effects of wood are presented in many, various ways - such as Planet Ark's "Make it Wood" campaign.
