The project deals with the rethinking of the outside area of the agritourism farm ‘Canales’, located on the edge of the basaltic edge of the Cedrino lake, in Dorgali (Sardinia, Italy); The design choices follow the awareness of an urgent need for quality for the project in the rural contexts of the island of Sardinia. A research of quality that the intervention tries to translate into builtshapes, reinterpreting the principles and features of that minimal living that has built up the island's low-density landscape over time. These principles-issues gain their formal construction in the identification of a mosaic road that hierarchizes the informal space between the farm buildings and mentions, through scraps and plates, the thre...

Barn conversion in Loubí

 A new life for an old farm building. Sustainability. The living room located in the space of the original threshing floor. Airy and light thanks to an added window and openings in the walls. Not wanting to meddle with the original building, the rest of the living space takes the form of a building inside a building with the kitchen and bathroom downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. More

Tillingham Winery

Tillingham Winery is situated in Peasmarsh off a winding lane, amidst fields and copses with panoramic views across the Tillingham Valley toward the Cinque Port town of Rye. Our client's vision is to produce fine organic artisan wines. The brief required a creative approach to reuse the existing buildings, draw in the stunning surrounding landscape, and reference the rich heritage of the site.   This ambitious project incorporates 70 acres of farmland and various farm buildings including a traditional Oast dating back to the 19th century. The farm buildings have been restored to facilitate organic wine production, wine tasting rooms, visitor accommodation, teaching spaces and artisan workshop spaces. Mixed vine varieties will be plan... More

Mountain House Mošovce

The family house at the foot of the Veľká Fatra National Park is situated on the border between the built-up area and the built-up area. Folkly, the house is located behind the hummocks, so the whole formation of matter is aimed at preserving the traditional concept of rural appearance. The overall expression of the volume of the house is fragmented by its roof landscape using the types of two gable roofs, which graduate upwards. The material division of the house is largely based on the forms of old warehouse farm buildings, the so-called barns located in the Turiec region.   Unusual is also the concept of layout, in which the entrance part of the house is part of the so-called night part. The house consists of four interconn... More

Project • By De Rosee SaPrivate Houses


Known as Kilnwood, the property is located on the edge of the Mendip Hills with an extensive view overlooking Glastonbury Tor. The brief for the project given to De Rosee Sa was to ensure that the renovation and new build share the same local vernacular and architectural language as that of other nearby farms and rural buildings, such as pitched roofs and black ship-lap timber boarding.   With the main house, a converted barn, De Rosee Sa designed an impressive and welcoming entrance. The practice created a new external entrance porch which dually functions as a boot room, and within what was the original hallway, they relocated the staircase. Moving its footprint allowed for a double-height hallway, successfully opening up the space... More

Project • By Noero ArchitectsChurches

Christ Church Somerset West

The existing church needed to double in size to accommodate a growing congregation - the church could not be easily extended so it was decided to build a new church and to re-use the original church as a space for children and performance. The minister, Gavin Millard, was an architect who was educated at Wits University in the 1980’s before entering the ministry.   He was agreat client as he understood our intentions and processes - not only was he a great facilitator but also added immeasurably to the process through wise counsel. He was taught by Jo Noero when he was a student at Wits and had shown a great interest in the church architecture that Noero had completed as diocesan architect for the then Transvaal Diocese of the...

Project • By Perathoner ArchitectsApartments


The private homes are located on a sloping plot in Selva, which - situated in the heart of the South Tyrolean Dolomites - forms the end of the Val Gardena.  In terms of urban planning, the design of the buildings is inspired by the typical so-called “Paarhof”, a form of mountain farm common in the entire Alpine region, in which the residential building and farm buildings are built in close proximity to one another and their gabled roofs are mostly oriented towards the valley. Due to the hillside location of the homes, they only seem like two-storey buildings looking downhill, as the cellars and the shared garage were built underground into the slope. On the lower floor, the two structures are connected to each other, the s... More

Project • By Ashworth Parkes Architects Ltd.Private Houses


There was an existing property on the site that was demolished. It was formed from two workers cottages. It had a very long and narrow plan, was constructed to a very poor standard, had not been maintained for many years and was suffering from subsidence. It was not feasible to refurbish it to achieve, or exceed, current regulations, so demolition was our only option. Following the Pre-Application process, the planners agreed that a replacement dwelling would be acceptable, however, they stipulated that it should be black timbered, ‘barn style’, with a clay tiled roof, and it should be on the same location on the site as the original house, running parallel to the road.   We decided to treat these restrictions as an oppor...

Twin house Trausner

Two modest, single-floor structures – the smallest for the parents, the largest for the young, growing family – sensibly respond to the local topography and vegetation, and form a farm-like ensemble together with the existing farm building. The drive and side building are completely untouched. The border between public and private is located at the edge of the property (front drive), and not at the respective building itself. The so-called “veranda house” serves as the contentual basis of the two new structures with large verandas in the front, conceived as single-floor garden pavilions. More

Rösmatt Rodersdorf housing association

The three building shells (a replacement building and two new buildings) allude to the former farm buildings in the farmstead areas, given the absence of protrusions and recesses and therefore their simple design. The replacement building that was completed at a later date adopts the development structure and gable design of high street development and is a continuation of this.   The two new buildings completed (and shown here) were developed at the lowest point of the plot and follow the site as it falls away slightly to create a required graduation of the ridge heights between the two adjacent street areas. With their position they accentuate the new replacement building as the main and front building. The rhythmic street area wit... More

Ellgass Allgäu Hotel

A simple building, inspired by the agricultural context, is deliberately placed at the original location of the rural barn. This preserves the space effect and intends a pleasant interaction of the two structures. The listed main building and the new accommodation wing complement each other to form a beautiful ensemble of buildings, reinforcing each other in their architectural and spatial impact. The new building delicately adapts the proportions and materiality of the original farm building, building on a clear rectangular floor plan and simple saddle roof construction, thereby preserving the rural scale. The chosen simple typology addresses the rural element and the rural environment in which the Ellgass family is active and has its root... More

Project • By zanon architetti associatiAuditoriums


In the green countryside of Treviso, near the Sile river and the Venetian lagoon, is where H- Farm was born: a business and training center geared to innovation through new technologies. The renovation of abandoned farm buildings and the construction of new wooden ones marked the first intervention where today more than five hundred people are living and working. The new expansion, the second phase of the project still in progress, concerns H-Campus, an international education district which will involve students, teachers and professionals: a multitude of people coming towards this evolving place and shaping a new community, giving new life to a forgotten countryside. The main value of this site is the dominant landscape, where the main in... More

Lake Geneva Residence

We’ve created a modern farmhouse that extends into the natural prairie landscape, providing a humanistic experience in natural light underneath vaulted ceilings. The interior experience is intended to mirror the exterior feeling.   Our client purchased 19 acres of land in Southern Wisconsin with the goal of spending their time surrounded by the native prairie that they themselves had rehabilitated. The couple wanted a single-story home that would not dominate the restored prairie, but rather enable the interior experience to be an extension of it. We conceived the project as a modern farmhouse, a building typology centered around the outdoors, to meet the needs of the client. The residence consists of three vaulted shapes nestl... More

Suffolk Farm House

It was only after living in their 400-year-old Jacobean farmhouse in Suffolk for 3 years that Architect Howard Nash (Co-director of Nash Baker Architects) and his partner Monique Beauval-Nash felt they knew the building well enough to make a start on its renovation. They used this long gestation period to good effect, repairing and improving decaying Victorian farm outbuildings and developing creative ways of tackling the architectural and conservation issues raised by the main farmhouse. Now, they have completed building works to the farmhouse and the result is a subtle and exquisite weaving together of the historic, the not-quite-so historic and the contemporary into a quietly confident statement of architectural and design excellence....
