The construction of this Buddhist Temple is something you won’t see very often. Rendered Hempcrete walls surround an exposed Douglas Fir sling-brace frame. The Monks joined our crew on the carbon-negative hemcrete build process. Hempcrete’s properties meant we could form and insulate an impressive, rotund bay structure with curved roof at the end of the hall to house the Buddah. The natural colour of the rustic lime-rendered wall contrasts the douglas fir sarking and frame and your eyes are naturally drawn to the focus of the Buddah. A modern slate roof and velux windows set the Hall apart from the existing clay roofed building with a nod to the local vernacular. Our bespoke designed oak doors, windows and sliding barn shutters are state of the art, bringing age-old tradition firmly into the present.
