Architect’s use of straw in construction Latest Sale Week 09082021

Latest Sale reports from the Architecture Business Directory and highlights a typical sustainable Architect’s use of straw in construction.

Architects are increasingly utilizing straw in major construction projects thanks to the proliferation of sustainability efforts within the industry. STROHPLUS GMBH, founded by Jürgen Höller in 2012, constructs up to three-storey houses exclusively using load-bearing straw, often in the form of jumbo bales weighing 250 kg, plastered with clay or lime. Additionally, the use of straw alongside other biomaterials such as wood, mycelium, seaweed, and vegetable fibres is also evident as displayed by the construction of a show home carried out by Biobased Creations.

Presented at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, this modular house, primarily constructed in a factory, includes materials such as insulation made from reeds and wall tiles constructed with seaweed. This trend demonstrates the vast potential of biomaterials in everyday home construction, proving this may very well become a sustainable and economically viable model. These examples signify a resurgence of straw as a green building material post-2021.
