Another unbelievable project has transcend the architectural industry by storm as a 52-year-old Hamidullah Ilchibaev, a proud resident of Chelyabinsk, Russia, built his own version of the Emerald Palace ironically called “Palace Oz”.

Ilchibaev had always been fascinated constructing almost everything from beer and vodka bottles to an awesome brand new ordeal. However, it was after the tragic lost of his son (who died at the young age of 18) when his projects stepped up to the next level.

His long-time dream of bottling up his own house has finally reached the bridges of reality. Built almost entirely of over 12,000 empty champagne bottles, the renovated 99-square meter house is now the latest tourist attraction in the region.

It took him three years to collect empty champagne bottles.

The delicate collection took him three years before his own emerald city came in one piece. Of course, it was even made possible with the help of donated bottles from nearby restaurants and piece by piece purchases. “When I started to build, I hadn’t even imagined that there are so many different kinds of bottles of champagne,” he said.

The regular house has now become an icon in the real estate industry.

Noting that the bottles have their own distinction, soon he became the Da Vinci in terms of bottling up things. Forming a solid foundation, the bottles served as the bricks stacked together then “glued” by an insulation between the finger-thick gaps. Voila! Regular house has now become an icon in the real estate industry. Of course, the agility and durability of the house would require regular maintenance and renovations including easy replacement of bottles making it durable up to a hundred years.

So the next question is how much is the newly-pimped house? Well, as much as intricate its details are, it is actually five times cheaper than the usual regular-material-made. Still, Russian Da Vinci is not after the perks but rather the memory of his son that his house illuminates.

Perhaps furnishing the house will give more exotic touches so CHEERS!
