House as a Poppy Flower

Holistic principles of the construction “The concept of the house is based on a holistic perception of the relationship among man, nature and architecture,” Oldřich Hozman explains. “The construction design takes into account not only energy savings, for which we pay money, but also the level of unmeasurable effects of subtle energies.” That’s why I also paid attention […]
