Site Practice en Dun Argo Hemp Group, Summum Engineering

€ 10.000

Architectural and design office Site Practice, in partnership with Dun Argo Hemp Group, will carry out research into the application of hemplime in house building. The applicants say that this material is rarely used while it is environmentally friendly and energy efficient. Hemp grows fast and can absorb more CO2 than other crops and trees. This makes it highly suitable for issues regarding climate adaptive building design. For this project the partners want to test the suitability of this material through a design study. The study will include questions on the (social) surroundings, architectonic quality and aesthetic development in order to find high quality and innovative housing solutions. Summum Engineering contributes to this project by offering technical support and will test any constructions.
