The Straw House, located in Eschenz, Switzerland, has a simple, formal shape. However, this experimental prefab is far from simple because of its highly innovative materials.
Made form solid panels composed of compressed straw and wood particles and a small concrete core, this prefab home is unique as well as highly sustainable. I like how the exterior is also clad in protective translucent panels, so you could see the compressed strawboard panels.
Designed by Zurich based architect Felix Jerusalem, this low cost, environment-friendly home offers three bedrooms, a kitchen/living room, bath and loft.
