Ecological construction with hemp
ArtCan craftsmen are at the service of people who wish to build differently with the concern of a minimal ecological footprint as well as the achievement of the highest global performances (aesthetics, durability, comfort, and more...)
The living architecture and the organic masonry hemp and lime that the hemp craftsmen have been practicing for more than 20 years offer the best in natural and ecological construction. This know-how has proven its performance for thousands of years, even in harsh climates like ours. They perfectly meet our current needs in ecological, living and performing construction.

At the crossroads between agriculture and ecological construction
Hemp is an annual crop which, because of its strong vigor, does not fear competition. It does not require pesticide treatment. Hemp is a plant of choice for weed control and crop rotation. Moreover, on the same surface, it is four times more productive in biomass than a forest. It is therefore a crop of immense generosity that offers solutions to deforestation and the fight against climate change.
The comfort of the hemp house is explained by the right balance between thermal mass and insulation. Heat accumulates in the mass and is then gradually redistributed, providing radiant comfort and a stable temperature. The same is true for coolness during summer heat waves. The results speak for themselves and exceed standard comfort expectations.
The low density of hemp and lime gives it its insulating quality without "cutting you off" from the outside. The hemp and lime wall acts like a second skin by allowing gas exchanges. By its capacity to breathe, it becomes a hygrometric regulator, controlling humidity.
In addition to reflecting heat and light, the hemp wall offers soundproofing and ionic radiation. The hemp chenevotte is a plant with a very high mineral concentration, composed of 70% of silica. We can say that it is close to quartz with these constituent qualities with the softness of the plant. This silica participates in a principle of light and heat and induces a vibration compatible with yours, beneficial negative ions, bringing well-being, health and better quality of life at different levels through this living and supporting material...
