hemp and lime house


PROGRAM

Design for  a family house


SITE

47 600 Nérac, France


DESCRIPTION

An overhang orientated towards the nicest view is slightly offset from the rectangular plan of the groundfloor. A subtle shift in the relationship between the  volumes that reinforces the contemporary character of the ensemble.


Walls are made from shuttered hempcrete. This mixture of hemp fibres and lime is the key to   the house's very high thermal, hygrometric and acoustic qualities. As a result, the house enjoys excellent indoor comfort in winter as well as in summer


SURFACE

115m2


STATE OF PROGRESS

Provisional acceptance


PARTNER

Nicolas Canton, architect
