Competition introduction

Competition organisers

Teamakers 
Guest 
House

The Teamakers Guest House competition is a collaboration with Latvian teamakers Ozolini, who draw on generations of knowledge and experience to create unique mixtures of herbal teas. Ozolini owner's Brigita and Dima Lukini are opening their doors to those looking to escape the non-stop pace of the city and retreat back to nature.



Surrounded by forest and its very own Lake Bezdibenė, the Teamakers Guest House is an ideal location for guests to restore their connection with nature. Often collaborating with meditation and eco-fitness retreats for visitors from countries around the world, Ozolini also hosts summer camps in which the secrets of medicinal herbs can be explored, and various self-awareness workshops take place.



The Teamakers Guest House is planned for construction on the site of a stone barn and would need to include not only accommodation for guests, but also an inventive and eco-friendly use of the space for guests to participate in tea-making workshops, meditation, and yoga.

The jury are looking for the Teamakers Guest House to act as an example of green building practices. Participants are tasked with focusing on eco-friendly and cost-effective methods to create an impressive multipurpose space that will further encourage ecotourism in the region.
