ChangGe Village Farm House Remodel Project in China by Evolution Design

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Article source: Evolution Design 

Background Information

The project is situated in ChangGe Village, Daxing County, in Beijing’s southwestern suburb. Subject of rebuild is a worn-out farm house built in the early 1970’s, with its original wood-brick structure commonly seen in north China’s country side. Before the remodel, inside the dim and shabby house (or a shack to be more exact), walls were coking dark, covered by more than 40 years of hard cooking smokes & ashes. The place had no water supply nor a restroom – its residents, a senior farm couple, needed to walk out 100m around the house to get to the closest loo in the neighborhood. The house’s long but narrow courtyard facing south functioned as a pathway for the family’s only transport vehicle, a three-wheeler, which was inconveniently parked in a dead end. Even worse, interior floor elevation of the house was almost 20 cm lower than the courtyard, turning the house into a flooding pond whenever it rained, a safety threat to the entire building structure. Ironically, the area was troubled by water shortage – water gets cut off almost daily, sometimes during peak evening hours.

Old Farmhouse in Munich, Germany by Peter Haimerl

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Article source: Peter Haimerl 

The oldest property in Alt-Riem. The farmhouse, consisting of a house and a stable, was built around 1750. In 2013 the Schusterbauerhaus still retained parts of the housing construction and remains of the stable. Two residential units were installed in this historic structure. The concept of the architect Peter Haimerl concept is based on two premises: retention of the historical building substance and at the same time the introduction of a spatial innovation. It connects the residential house and the stable using a spectacularly inserted concrete cube.

Wine Country Farmhouse in Calistoga, California by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Article source: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Project Narrative

Located in Calistoga, a small town in Northern California’s Napa Valley, this renovated farmhouse is placed gently into a landscape of grape vines and matured walnut trees. The clients, local winemakers, desired a modern dwelling that would complement the small estate while working within the structure of the former residence. With the home’s new design, the relationship to site and ambiguity of the plan are simplified through the subtle shifting of openings and partitions, and the addition of key unifying elements.

Omke Jan in Woudsend, The Netherlands by Eek en Dekkers (Piet Hein Eek Architecture)

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Article source: Eek en Dekkers (Piet Hein Eek Architecture)

In June 2014 we were asked to devise a plan for the renovation of a historic farmhouse (1904) in the Friesian town of Woudsend. The client wanted to turn it into a vibrant meeting place, in which the handicrafts and food from the surrounding area play a central role. The milk and meat come from the Friesian cow, the flour from the mill in the village, the wood from the adjacent mill and you can catch your own eel and smoke it in the smokehouse down the road.

L’Architecture est dans le Pré in Vendée, France by Claas architectes

Sunday, June 18th, 2017

Article source: Claas architectes

Some projects are more particular than others, so when my brother asked me to design his house, the personal stakes were great. As a young farmer his financial supports are limited, but he has regular opportunities to build and maintain buildings on the farm. In most cases, they are made of metal fabrics delivered in kit. This know-how combined with its working time flexibility  allowed to conceive the project in self-construction.

Glass Farmhouse in Oregon by Olson Kundig

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.
