Houses of Straw

Kanopy (Firm)
Format

Summary
This film shows the recent development of strawbale building in Germany. In interviews with owners, builders, architects and experts many relevant green building topics are discussed. Straw is an annually renewable crop, available wherever grain crops are grown. It is indeed a waste product, much of which is currently burnt in the fields. The thick walls offer superior insulation value. With a natural plaster, straw bale walls 'breath' and together with the sound absorbing qualities, provide a quiet healthy interior environment.
