Rammed earth construction and design
Earth is the oldest construction material on the planet. It is abundant in every region and provides us with a sustainable, fully re-usable source of building material. Rammed earth is the process of compacting clayey earth into forms(shuttering), then removing the forms, leaving the earth walls exposed. By using different blends of earths, we achieve beautiful layers.
The benefits of rammed earth include:
- High thermal mass, meaning great indoor temperature control
- Humidity control, breathable walls,
better health for occupants
- Sustainable building material
- Beautiful to look at
- Very low maintenance
- Extremely durable
- Low cost – design dependant
Areas of use:
- Whole house construction
