The first featured project, Flat House, is a ground breaking radically low embodied carbon house.
"The 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. The project has led to the establishment of Material Cultures, a research organisation which is exploring natural materials in the context of off site construction.
The last project, Polyvalent Studio, was Designed and built by students at London Metropolitan School of Architecture the studio is made from a palette of cellulose based materials. The project was designed within the parameters of the caravan act and was constructed over a period of 12 days at Margent Farm. It was led by Paloma Gormley and David Grandorge with engineering consultancy from Structure Workshop."
