The rehabilitation of the stable for tourist accommodation, used the bio-sustainable technique of construction with bales of straw (chaff or hay). The results were:
1. Natural and renewable material: By using straw, as a building block, the use of other materials that require industrial transformation (cooking and chemical processes) that emit significant amounts of pollutants into the atmosphere was avoided by 59%.
2. Economic savings in labor and material: Due to ease of transportation, storage and construction speed, 33% savings in labor and 45% in material were achieved.
3. Thermal insulation: The straw helps maintain temperatures in levels of well-being inside the building, avoiding air conditioning elements. It got 3 degrees Celsius (37.4 F) more temperature vs. the rooms without bales of straw.
4. Earthquake-resistant construction: Straw walls absorb much of the force of the earthquake instead of transferring it to the roof as in conventionally constructed structures.
5. Acoustic insulation: Straw walls offer more silence, which results in a sense of peace inside.
