Designed by Eurban, the shell is made of Lenotec; a highly airtight panel, made of strips of waste wood off-cuts and glue. The panels are self-supporting in two directions, require no additional framework and are used as load-bearing walls. Also used are Glulam beams and columns where there is a large expanse of glazing. The building, can be built up to 10 storeys high and is fixed to screw-pile foundations, which need no concrete and can be easily uprooted.
Photovoltaics, solar thermal and wind technologies have also been included. Insulation is achieved through wood fibre coated in a secondary waterproofing layer of paraffin wax, and battens, onto which cladding is affixed.
