What are rammed-earth walls?Rammed-earth walls are constructed by ramming an aggregate mixture, including gravel, sand, silt and clay, between flat panels, frames or moulds (otherwise known as formwork). It is an on-site construction method, and removing the formwork reveals the rammed-earth wall. Traditionally, a wooden pole was used to ram and compress the earth mixture. Today, a mechanical ram is used. Plumbing and electrical points are positioned internally as the walls are constructed.

2. Rammed earth wallsHill House by Mihaly Slocombe shows how rammed earth can be a versatile material worthy of use for a family home. Not only does it age well, but it also provides thermal comfort throughout the building. With this project, the architects set out to use natural materials and passive solar design principles to achieve energy neutrality.
