Buildings for tomorrow - with Straw from yesterday


Natural and simple: straw has excellent thermal insulation properties, is natural and inexpensive and may be ordered directly via the farmers. That's why we use these properties for sustainable construction for over 100Jahren whether for buildings without heating (energy class Aktivhaus Standart A+++) and very straw (self-supporting) or as Inappropriate outer or inner liner in the energy saving League passive house standard A++ to A+ (Liga Aktivhaus Standart) ,


Straw bale builders are out for sustainable sparking fresh-refractory ideas.

"Spin straw into gold": this is our building program.


„Architecture is what produces beautiful ruins.“ Auguste Perret F 1874-1954

This short and concise vision formulated highlights the relevance of the choice of ecological building materials. What we leave future generations at once inhabited hazardous waste sites? Is it necessary to wait for * advanced recycling fees in the construction industry?

Would not it be better to build from the start an environmentally friendly way to, a reality such a simple vision of how she Auguste Perret described?


Perhaps out of respect for those who come after us ...

An architect should be aware of the ecological impact of deconstructions of his buildings in the clear.


That ecological structures prove itself in time and quality, show the following reference examples.

An amazing recent example from 1921:

the first straw bale in Europe in Minergie standard, now a museum

Maison Feuillette

Strohballenhaus 1921: 

69  bis rue des déportés et des internés 

F45200 MONTARGIS     (1h von Paris)
