A Hemp House

Published: 10/01/2023 By Allan Fuller

Hemp is becoming an increasingly popular material among architects seeking to reduce the carbon impact of their projects.  

Situated at Margent Farm in Cambridgeshire there is a rural R+D facility developing bio-plastics with hemp and flax, Flat House is a ground breaking radically low embodied carbon house designed by; practicearchitecture.co.uk

This  three-bedroom house was designed with the aim of prototyping pre-fabricated sustainable hemp-based construction to be applied to larger scales of house-construction. Working closely with engineers and material specialists we developed a prefabricated panel infilled with hemp grown on 20 acres of the farm. The elements were raised into place in just two days.
