Sustainability


Designing and Building Small

Straw can be grown in less than half a year in a completely sustainable production system. This is in contrast to timber which can take up to 25 years more to produce a timber frame for a house.

Conversion of straw into a sustainable, renewable resource to be used as a dominant building material could be especially beneficial in areas where timber is scarce and straw is plentiful, for example AUSTRALIA.
