building with earth


Why earth?
Earth is one of the most aesthetic substances that nature offers us to build. The pure raw material, the massive rammed earth or the carefully crafted surface are characterized by an expressive materiality.

Earth also contributes to a pleasant indoor climate. This is made possible by the properties of the clay mineral.

Earth is also a technical problem solver. Walls from earth offer excellent sound insulation. For the renovation, we apply adapted building materials and techniques that have proven themselves over many centuries. Interior insulation with clay allows the energetic renovation of beautiful historic buildings.

Earth und timber – the perfect match
Wood architecture has become increasingly important in recent years. Nowhere else can expressiveness, individuality and environmental awareness be brought together like this. These are the interfaces that connect the timber construction with the building material earth. The combination of the constructive efficiency of the wood with the freedom of design and the beauty of earth-building offers tension and harmony.

The best example of this are the zoë modules: high-performance, industrially produced semi-finished products made of wood-based materials in perfect combination with the local raw materials straw and earth from excavation material and an elegant finish with earth design plaster from CLAYTEC.
