Open Source Details: Designing with Hemp + Lime

What happens when designers and architects think with HempLime as a primary material for design? We researched and collected a handful of engaging projects at a variety of scales, construction methods, and building uses.

As a companion to our Hemp + Lime guide released in 2020, the goal for this publication is to create a catalog of precedents to motivate other architects to use hemplime in future projects. With their permission, we redrew their design details to compare the various design and construction methods.

At HML, we believe that the future of building can be carbon neutral, biodegradable, energy-efficient, and healthy if plant-based building products become the norm. HempLime is one of these materials that has excellent potential to be scaled and used widely– we are at the beginning of the learning curve.
