A house of 70 square meters built with 10,000 bottles and a little 'concrete in Malindi. The project, borrowed from similar ideas realized in Nigeria and Bolivia, is Italian opera Franceschi Oliviero The Bottle House in Malindi is located in the Mtangani and was donated to the family of an employee of Franceschi, who has eight children.
The cost of disposal was approximately € 4,000, necessitated especially for concrete parts, the roof of "mabati" and finishes such as doors and windows. Because the bottle, purchased by a company that occuoa the recovery of plastics for recycling purposes, have cost only 150 euro.
"To achieve this studio - said Franceschi, who inaugurated the house along with the village chief of Mtangani and the local priest Father David - it takes only a month. It starts from the foundations and columns of reinforced concrete, then the bottles, all of the same size, they are filled with sand and only the last part of the neck with cement.
They are then "slung" with a rope and then the concrete is cast in order to create a real wall. Caps are a purely aesthetic effect. "
The next project of Franceschi, in collaboration with the diocese, regard other lodges to be built by the same method, but to limit costs, using wood instead of concrete.
The funds will be recovered only through word of mouth, and in the context of the knowledge and friendships of the benefactor "ecological" Italian that will engage personally in the realization of the works.
