Ecolodge of the future

executive summary by darmansjah

Ecolodge of the future

What will the next generation of ecolodges look like? We asked Kenyan-born ecolodge expert Hitesh Mehta: “Up-cycling abandoned shipping containers will become one of the most environmentally friendly approaches for the ecolodge of the future. The exterior will be covered in plant panels that form living walls. The green roof will have solar photovoltaics (such as at Poland’s Eco Frontiers Ranch) and composted soil with native flora. Inside, recycled wood panels with soy-based paints will have porthole windows that usher in the daylight to illuminate a décor of cultural artifacts.”
