Straw bale barn Feed Bristol

 

A load bearing straw bale barn built for Edible Futures, at Feed Bristol. The building is deisgned to be an adaptable space for the varied uses that are required on the farm, from the packing of the salad bags twice a week to training days. 

 

The building was built out of local straw from Gloucestershire, with a breathable limecrete floor. The roof trusses were constructed in a barn style out of local douglas fir. 

 

During the project we ran an internship for 18-23 year olds who struggling to find employment, they completed 3 weeks of work and skill learning and we put them through there CSCS card at the end of it.
