Alembic Studio, LLC – Design Firm / Hemp Technical Specialists
Joshua A. Pettler, AIA Architect – Lead Designer
The primary design parameter for this project was sustainability- our clients wished to demonstrate to community leaders that with the potential of being a locally produced product, hempcrete could be a major industry in Hawaii. They plan for this to be their last residence, and want to benefit from the health aspects of hempcrete as it relates to the prevention of mold and mildew issues in the home, for both themselves, their family and many friends. The program for this home includes considerations for outdoor gathering spaces for large events to host community members, policy makers, county and state administrators and building industry leaders in a fun and informative setting.
