The Biological House is a modern, sustainable and modular housing concept with a specific focus on architecture, materials, indoor air quality and unique design. It is built with upcycled residual products from the agricultural industry with materials including grass, straw and seaweed, all of which would normally be considered waste and burned for energy. These materials are instead processed into valuable natural building materials which will form the bulk of the raw materials needed for the project, thereby avoiding the environmental impact that burning them would cause.
The development is fully supported by the Danish Ministry of the Environment Fund for Ecological Construction, with all materials used in the build available commercially and thoroughly tested and approved. More than 40 major strategic partners have been involved in the construction of the Biological House including; Novofibre, Horn Group, Thermocell, Derbigumk, Rheinzink and Kebony for the exterior cladding. The Biological House is the first construction in connection with the opening of the BIOTOPE - a unique new exhibition park and knowledge centre for sustainable construction and Denmark's largest permanent construction exhibition.
