Natural Building defined
Natural materials have been used in buildings for thousands of years, across the globe. Some form part of our national landscape and are an important part of our heritage. They can contribute to social cohesion as building, living and working in them requires a positive energy and fun approach to teamwork. Participating in the life of a natural building is a sensory and tactile experience; building one requires knowledge of materials and how they work together. Natural materials come from nature, and the building thus connects you to the earth that it came from. The materials are alive, healthy and breathe and the spaces that they craft are simple, yet dynamic and elegant in nature; seamlessly integrated with surrounding spaces, including food gardens and the natural environment.
