Chemical free, low VOC

building materials

Materials & finishes

We’ve done extensive research to avoid using substances that can off-gas into the living spaces. We’ve chosen finishes and treatments that are either low or no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). We have also made sure as many materials and finishes are natural.

Research & selection

Our approach to building material selection has been to start from basics and not to trust anyone. By no means we say we are not guided by others’ knowledge and experience but in doing our research we have found that statements are often misleading and sometimes completely wrong.
