It’s Surely Possible, Sustainable, And Environmentally-Friendly
Researchers from a research and development facility for bioplastics made of hemp and flax recently came up with this farmhouse made entirely of hemp. The foundations of an old barn were used to build this Cambridgeshire home. Prefabricated panels made of hemp grown in the facility and mixed with biowaste resin were used to construct the farmhouse. If this doesn’t sound amazing enough, these panels allowed for construction of the exteriors to last only two days!
More than this, hemp-based insulation was also used to provide a warm and cozy interior. The three bedroom farmhouse also has a large open space for working, a research and design laboratory, and a kitchen. The farmhouse is furnished with wooden furniture and is heated by a biomass boiler.
This carbon neutral and sustainable farmhouse is truly a testament to the various ways hemp can be used.
The firm designed the “groundbreaking, radically low embodied carbon house” as a prototype to explore how hemp can be used to create prefabricated, sustainable materials that can be applied to large-scale buildings and homes.
