Biobased/natural materials

Materials that naturally regrow in nature and do not get exhausted, are also called ‘biobased’ materials. We are interested to go into more depth on the quite wide definitions such as ‘sustainable buildings’ and ‘ecological buildings’. Van den Hurk archictecten have therefore their main focus on the energy level that have been stored in the used building materials, also called the ‘embodied energy’. This will be completely in dialog with the concept and architecture of the building. Especially the detail level will have a lot of attention.
