1295 (10") Bamboo Strawbale House. Category 04: Hybrid Houses and Buildings
Susanne Koerner & Tilman Schaeberle: Germany
The first permanent structure in Germany with a bamboo structure and strawbale walls, this house blends alternative building materials in an elegant and practical way. The bamboo provides all the load-bearing and structural components, while the strawbale, covered in clay, provide great thermal insulation. The green roof provides a place for plants and small animals within an urban environment.
