located in middelfart, denmark, and built by een til een, the world’s first ‘biological house’ has opened its doors to the public. setting a new high standard for eco-friendly buildings, the modular structure is made from upcycled materials. focusing on architecture, materials, indoor air quality and design, the biological house uses agricultural industry residual products like grass, straw and seaweed and upcycles them into valuable building mediums.

the biological house by een til een takes pride in processing materials that would be normally considered waste and burned for energy, and turns them into the bulk of the raw materials needed for construction. this avoids the environmental impact that burning them would cause and gives them a second life. the property can be easily adapted to each customer, and once constructed, the building can be removed and rebuilt anywhere.

the design and construction of the project involved a rigorous process where innovative techniques were tested and developed along the way. for example, the building sits upon screw piles instead of a traditional concrete foundation. additionally, it uses kebony for cladding due to its environmental credentials, high durability, hardness, and dimensional stability.
