34 Inn Carr Farm, High Baswick

The brief here was to create a dwelling traditional in character and in keeping with the rural setting, whilst being suitable for 21st Century living and a zero carbon lifestyle. 

The client's family business concentrated on the production of hemp for sustainable building purposes. We used this hemp to create an exemplar home - a model suitable for copying elsewhere which is true high quality, low carbon living. 

The hemp acts as a 'carbon sink' as it locks the carbon up for the life of the dwelling. This is hugely different to brick and block that are very carbon intensive.
