A large scale renovation of an existing stone building in Normandy, this project is being used as a case study to look at the whether a project using non-certificated locally sourced materials can meet
thermal performance criteria required to benefit from state funded grants.

Straw bales, flax, hemp, seashells, shredded clothing, earth – some very interesting materials being used in innovative ways, in particular the pallet wood and straw bale roof structure.

There are also some creative examples of using existing timber and recuperated materials in this passive solar house – which in places resembles a children’s playground.

Two representatives of l’Association Régionale de la Promotion d’Éco-construction will be presenting the project (in English).
They will talk about its findings and implications for training initiatives in the use of locally sourced sustainable materials and the growing supply chains to enable a wider uptake of their use.
They will also talk about the organisation’s role in promoting eco-construction in Lower Normandy.
