STAY

The Culture of Life – Eco Constructions and Equipment

Trnulja Estate is a green cell right on the outskirts of Ljubljana. A green cell, as all our actions and regulations we follow, are in tune with the harmony of man and nature. We combine a genuine, traditional way of living with the technologically advanced facilities.

All our construction work is done with degradable natural materials and in accordance with the principles of ecologically sustainable buildings. Logs of solid Slovenian spruce embellish the exterior of the buildings. The silky shine of these logs invite all our guests to embrace life while reconnecting with Nature. The walls are wooden skeletal structures, filled with healthy hemp insulation and hand-clogged with clay. The trees that we have cut down on our estate have found a new life in our furniture. When growing, each tree creates its unique patterns, which we have respected when designing interior furnishings. The wood remains alive and vibrant and our furniture is not designed in strait lines. They follow the growth and will of the wood. We are especially proud of our floor tiles, which are made of recycled brick walls of the original house on the property. You can find another piece of our estate history in our handmade clay basins, as they stand on recycled old marsh pilots. Your relaxing sleep is assured by mattresses and pillows filled with hemp. Bed linen and towels are also made of hemp fiber – pleasing to the touch, light and airy. Sojourn in our apartments thus invigorates and stimulates finding a harmonious balance between work and relaxation.

About the Apartments

Fully ecologically built and equipped apartments will ensure you can rest in the shelter of the Trnulja Estate and accumulate new strengths for your everyday challenges. The interiors of the apartments take on the scent of natural, untreated timber and the clay products and hemp textiles fill the space with homeliness and comfort. The facilities floors are made of the recycled bricks of the old house, the walls are a wooden construction with hemp insulation and clay plasters. The furniture, shaped in accordance with its natural form, is made of autochthonous wood and rustically treated. Hemp bed mattresses are of the highest quality, as are all the textile hemp articles like bedding, towels and curtains. All this contributes to your well-being and and is good for your health. There are four apartments in the accommodation facility, two on the ground floor and two in the loft. Guests can also stay in a studio for two persons that has its own entrance.

Materials Used

WODDEN SKELETAL STRUKTURE WITH HEMP INSULATION
All external and internal walls are wooden skeletal constructions filled with hemp insulation, which is ecologically produced at home. Ecological is also the way of its processing without treating it with special protective measures. Hemp has excellent insulation and other characteristics: it provides a pleasant living climate, is a good sound insulator and helps to reduce noise, it is open to diffusion, provides a healthy climate in the room, it is easy to process and is especially skin-friendly.

NATURAL, BRASHED WOOD
Spruce and alder wood is used for construction and equipment. The alder is an autochthonous tree from our marsh area. For the production of furniture, we used only wood that has been solely cut down on our estate. In its design, we tried to keep the wood as natural in form as possible. The chair backrests, the bed headers and the kitchen counters are handmade and then naturally and rustically treated.

CLAY PLASTERING
Clay is a material from a natural cycle, which can be used in its unaltered form and can be returned to the earth after it has been used. With its characteristics, it allows the production of equivalent products as classic building materials, except that the clay is a material without any chemical admixture. The clay pleasant natural color of loamy plaster gives a warm feeling to our home, while at the same time rounded edges give the room the necessary softness. The clay was applied manually on wood or other mineral substrates, as the clay, which is a natural building material boasts top-notch properties.

Architecture

In the renovation of our estate we tried to preserve the old traditions, the typical elements of farm construction and ecological materials.

THE OLDEST CONSTRUCTION STYLE: THE EXTERIOR LOG FACADE
We decided to build in the style which will emphasize the special importance of our autochthonous space, that is of the village of our area called “Črna vas” or “Black Village”. The facilities of our estate visualize Tomaž’s house, which is the oldest standing house in Črna vas and on which, even at first impression, you can see the beauty of the logs adorning most of the facade. The logs are spruce wood, cut on the slopes of the Logarska Valley, at a height of 1300m, which guarantees an exceptional wood quality. An interesting fact to mention is that all the spruce logs of our buildings are cut down according to ancient customs. That is, the logs are chopped within a period of three days after after the youg moon.

BRICK ENTRANCE
Brick cubes made of clay, locally called “modularc” give the building structure a bricky look of timeless beauty. From times gone, the brick constructions and unfinished fasades were features typical of our village of “Črna vas”.

TYPICAL ELEMENTS OF THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF OUR COUNTRYSIDE
Strong console fabrics can be considered as part of the cultural heritage of old farmhouses. The building structure ends in a typical console rustic element that runs through its entire length. The building frontage is classically glazed. Its soft yellow colour is in complete unison with the hues of the spruce logs.

STONE CLOGS
To make the clogs we used the beautiful local granite stone. The granite is a granular magmatic rock, which in addition to its interesting appearance is mainly used for its high strength and durability.

SUPPORTING LOGS PILOTS
Our estate is located on the “Barje” – the Ljubljana Marshes and supporting log pilots are typical construction elements of the area. However, the recycled support log pilots have not only a characteristic visual feature as they also carry the weight of the logs.

Tritikala is a cereal, a cross between wheat and rye. It has more proteins than wheat and less gluten. It does not require much fertilizing and is highly resistant to disease. It is absolutely beautiful when swaying in the wind on several hectares of our fields. It is used as fodder, and is increasingly desirable in bakery products in combination with wheat.

In construction, it is used as an insulating material. Otherwise it is also a raw material for making paper, various types of textiles, clothing, mattresses, ropes,… while today it is becoming more and more established as a food and dietary supplement.  From its seeds, delicious cakes can be prepared or nourishing oil pressed.

The apartment is named after the grain crop of our fields – corn.
Corn or maize grain differs a lot in shape and size from grains of other types of cereals. The corn stem ends up in a tassel tightly enveloped by several layers of ear leaves – the husks. The mature corn cob of golden color and distinctive shape is a characteristic set up of Slovene rural decoration. With the ear leaves real artistic products are created. In our fields, corn with golden yellow cobs is grown, but also known are the white and the red corn. Corn grains do not contain gluten and are therefore a suitable nutrient for people with the celiac disease. On our Trnulja Estate we produce organic corn flour and an extremely tasty organic corn semolina.

In fact, it is a fruit and even a relative of rhubarb. Buckwheat does not contain gluten, so it can be used by patients with celiac disease. With its typical triangular grains it has a very interesting appearance and is deeply cut into the consciousness of the Slovenian nation as the field crop from which two typical Slovene dishes are prepared – buckwheat bred and buckwheat porridge.
