solo: rumah turi – green heaven inside the city

P1010818the green hotel of solo, rumah turi

solo is my father’s hometown. it is a place where i always visit with my family every few years in my childhood. although in my adult years, yogyakarta become my own home, i rarely visit solo. not as much as when i was a little, even when it’s just 2 hours away by train.

but when i did, i always find solo changing so much. it feel much more industrial then yogyakarta. where more business is growing, which make the city have a different ambience compare to yogyakarta.

though the last development, created something very interesting like rumah turi. it is one of the green hotel existing, design and made by an indonesian, pak paulus. it used all recycle material, have their own hanging vegetable garden and recycle their own water use. it is one of the many surprise of solo that i found.

located in the middle of housing alleys near the bustling solo paragon, it is a very soothing to see this many greenery and a breath of fresh air. for a time i found a little green heaven in solo.
