RegioStars Awards 2019


The CobBauge Project has developed a new and innovative walling material using an ancient method of building from earth and fibres. This has been updated for modern methods of construction, allowing the threads of culture to be blended with crisp modern building design. The new material is used in a composite wall that will pass current thermal regulations and create energy efficient high-performance homes that people will find comfortable, healthier to live in and inexpensive to run.
