World’s First Biological House Built With Agricultural Waste

An architectural firm in Denmark, Een Til Een has revealed the latest step forward in sustainable housing: the world’s first “Biological House.”

The home was built using materials made from agricultural waste, including grass, straw, and seaweed, and was conceptualized in collaboration with the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.

Not only is the reuse of this material healthier for the environment, it also prevents the harmful effects of burning the waste, which is what normally happens to this type of agricultural residue if there is no use for it, according to Curbed.

Doesn’t it sound amazing that you can build a house from things such as tomato stems, straw and seaweed, which is just as durable as normal buildings and at the time has a healthy economy and complies with the rules? That’s what Danish Environmental Minister Kirsten Brosbøl said.

In addition to the agricultural waste being used for most of the raw building material—including tomato stems and woodchips being turned into composite boards—eco-friendly Kebony wood was used for the home’s outer cladding.

According to Kebony, 40 partners were used in the construction of the home, each with an eye toward sustainability and environmental responsibility.
