Straw bale house "Hattefall"

Client: Private
Duration: Ongoing research
Size: 25 m2

An ongoing research for the use of modular straw bale elements in construction in collaboration with Catherine Jelk. 

The building industry in Sweden today stands for almost 40% of Swedens energy related CO2 emissions and the global construction sector is a major waste producer in the world. Modular straw bale elements enable the construction of houses with a low-to-no carbon footprint. The aim with the straw bale project is to construct buildings with a holistic perspective, in harmony with nature, with emphasis in craftmenship and spirituality.
