These two small straw bale buildings were built during a one-week workshop led by the ASBN (Herbert Gruber & Gerhard Scherbaum). The bales were filled between wooden posts and, after shearing off the walls, plastered directly with clay. One of the two guest huts was boarded with a ventilated wooden façade, while the clay (mixed with approx. 1-2 % cow dung) forms the façade of the other. The floor was also made of rammed earth. The building owner is the Swedish environmental organisation Ecotopia under the leadership of Karin Malmgren.
