We are losing millions acres of forest each year, used for timber construction as well as heating our homes.  Emulating the models, systems, and elements of nature we have developed an affordable DIY home, for cold climate. Wautillarium passively achieves year-round comfortable t°, using laws of physics and compost producing thermophilic bacteria. This Living Bio Shelter Organism is an innovative, game-changing building technology, inspired by and in alignment with nature. We invite you to co-create the 1st prototype, to be used as a creative & experimental communal immersion LAB, that will inspire others to tread lightly on the Earth". ​

We, Alosha and Zoya Lynoff invite you to spend a month with us in Russia, building a revolutionary eco home and working with our traumas & emotional states

We will be building Wautillarium eco-home acting as a living laboratory, pottery studio as well as an R&D center for kids & adults. We will work closely together and you will come out inspired with theoretical and practical wisdom. You will also get a change to work on any of your traumas and hidden baggage that hinders you to thrive.

What is a Wautillarium???

It is a revolutionary autonomous eco-home designed to withstand extreme cold climate areas of our planet without the use of firewood or fossil fuels. Having a built-in self-heating mechanism with thermophilic bacteria, Wautillarium home taps into the energy of the sun and laws of physics to provide a stable temperature year-round.

 

The first 2 prototypes are going to be used as research experimental LABs & communal creative spaces. This fractal will seed worldwide through live & online workshops as well as a DIY VR book.

 

Currently, large mature trees are being burned by a single home in one winter month. This mass genocide is happening on a global scale, depleting our planetary’s living lungs. Inspired by the science of Bio-Geometry and Bio-Architecture I mimicked nature's genius to develop a functional dwelling that heats, feeds, and cleans up after its inhabitants whilst being curvilinear and comfortable.

 

The Wautillarium is made from recycled waste materials mixed with earth, and once plastered, will not off-gas any toxic fumes (tested and verified), thereby resulting in a safe and healthy EcoHome to inhabit. Wautillarium Autonomous BioShelter provides a nurturing habitat and mutually rewarding symbiotic relationship between the planet and human alike;

 

  • Self-heating & cooling through storage solar energy in thermal mass and thermophilic bacteria that break down carbon and nitrogen to produce a wealth of compost

  • Construction materials are post-consumer waste & superadobe

  • Upcycled all of its wastewater for food production, toilet flushing, and heating

  • DIY wind turbine and solar panels to provide for its own power needs

  • Harvested, stored, filtered, and pressurized rain/snow for all the water needs

  • Grew year around nutrient-dense food using living machine & EM technology

  • Has built-in fun interactive nature emergence Lab for year-around play with dream catcher climbing net, 3D solar calendar Almanac, wind flutes,  rainbows, brewing of EM and compost tea as well as air operated living machine

  • Sacred Geometry is built into all the foundation to height ratios - EMR Technology is humanized through BioGeometrical design.

Whats our Internship about?

Together with 3-4 other students, we will go on a deep journey to construct a fully solar passive eco home for the subzero freezing climate. 

The building of this unit is spread out over several months due to its complexity and precision of construction. Therefore you can choose which part of the build you want to partake in; the below list is a guideline of the construction process.  
There are 4 different phases that will start in August until the end of November.  The entire process will be recorded on video and organized into structured video lessons. So if you missed any part of the build you will be able to watch it anywhere, anytime. The full video course will be complete by the end of 2022.

 

The construction will be interwoven with personal inner work on our emotional states and traumas (should youi choose to). This consciousness integration work is inseparable and vital for all future projects. Without it, no matter how beneficial for the planet at the start, any type of construction will attract competition, rivalry, hierarchy, and a wish to build "mine better than yours" at the end of the day. 

We possess all these socially imprinted programs, whether we realize it or not.  Over time, our good intentions will slowly warp out, bringing us into competitive mode no matter how eco-friendly and wonderful our projects are. The process work will help us shed some of the trauma and baggage that hinders us from truly thriving. (more info here)

DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR COLD CLIMATE

Thick wall mass including wall and roof insulation as per Earthship design. In addition we'll be adding insulation under the floor to stop "heat sink" effect.  Wautillarium will tap into Geothermal heat & use Jean Pain wood chip compost method to warm up water and air. It will include a "super efficient russian oven" which will double up for sauna + kitchen cooking with all excess heat storing in the walls and MASS couch. it is developed not to heat space in summer

NATURAL & RECYCLED MATERIALS

The home will be build using tires in the foundation, earth, cans and bottles as per Earthship design. Superadobe will replace 2/3rds of the tyre walls. I have great experience and love for this material as seen from my previous living eco home training. By building this home with 200 tyres, cans and bottles you will counterbalance all the waste you will produce through out your life.

WATER ORGANISING MODULE

I have reworked a typical W.O.M. from Earthship by combining it with our robust Slow Sand Bio Char filter. This allowed to substantially drop the price and increase the quality of drinking water whilst using up filtration medium which is prepared by home owner (gravel, sand and biochar) This module will include all the practical steps necessary to deliver stored water to all the taps. We will also include the implosion device to revitalize the drinking water.

POWER ORGANISING MODULE

This module will deliver electricity to your home and all of your appliances. In addition to standard solar we will also be using a steam powered 3 kWa generator which will be connected to the wood fired oven. This will give us big power only when we need it for power tools, whilst all excess heat will be stored in the mass wall for winter use. This contraption will greatly reduce the price of the off-the=power-grid battery bank and solar/wind/hydro system.

LIVING AIR REVITALIZATION MODULE

In summer the cool air will be pulled in from the northern side. In winter the fresh air will be taken underground 30 metres away, allowing it to be heated geothermally and enter into the oven. When the oven is not fired it will just be used as a warm fresh air inlet when fired it will create a very unique negative pressure zone (tried & tested) and warm the floor without conventional piping at a fraction of the cost. All air will be filtered with fungi filter

BIOGEOMETRY & EMR PROTECTION

During my bio-geometry training with Ibrahim Karim, I've learned about the harmful effects of geopathic stress and the importance of testing the land prior to the positioning of sleeping spaces. You'll learn how to test your own site. Certainertain geometries will be used in the construction + metal waste into the building material to create a protective layer. The entire home is designed using sacred geometry which will add to the overall wellness of the dweller.

AQUA CULTURE

At the front of the house under a separate green house will be an aquaculture pool which will take use up the final overflow water from the wetland treated septic. This water will be further polished up by John Todd's Living Eco Machine, that I am testing out right now.  I am hoping that this water will be clean enough for swimming as well as it will constantly circulate through the aqua botanical cell as well as eco machine and separate biochar filter.

BUILT LO-TECH AFFORDABLY 

The price of a global Earthship is 400.000 USD as stated by my teacher Mike Reynolds. I have redesigned the home adding some of the unique methods I've been building with for the last 13 years. With simplified tire septic, dream catcher mezzanine, DIY water reservoir, living roof, polycarbonate green house, significantly smaller solar system as well as superadobe walls; will bring the constrcution cost right down whilst making the actual build easier with way less crew.

 

You will immerse yourself in practical creativity and interesting discussions with myself and a little with Zoya. We will do some process work should you choose to in order to process some of the trauma that is hindering you from thriving within your life. 

I am a creative inventor with a wealth of practical knowledge and practical expertise in eco-home & ecosystem construction. Therefore if you have any questions with regards to your own build I will be happy to assist.

I will lead theoretical lessons on the subjects that we will be building. You will get all the other theory & practical for this entire home in the video training as mentioned above. 

 

The tuition fee

The tuition fee for a 4-week apprenticeship will be 1500 USD which includes food and accommodation as well as our full online video course. Your tuition fee will go towards ecological training & research lab. 

 

Accommodation is included. We'll rent a home nearby or invest in Yurts on our land where you will be comfortable.

 

Additional information. We will enjoy a few hikes, nature, swimming, saunas and get to visit a few cultural spots as well as one eco-village. We will also go to St Petersburg to see the amazing architecture and cathedrals.  Research Pushkinskiye Gory Nature Reserve, our land is 10 km away... an amazing cultural place for us to enjoy a few inspiring evenings at...
