StrohuttenFest: Day 2

How durable is straw building?

27 Sep 2013

The wall is standing. You came to see how our new office arose. While you were here you were able to learn more about durability and straw building from the professionals. This night, architect Sjap Holst and Carl Giskes from Tierrafino were our guests.


Lunch during the first building day of our straw office -
