The site design of this small organic farm and residence transitions from a cultivated landscape of orchards, gardens, and farming towards a restored native ecology of meadow grasses and coastal live oaks. The interwoven site and architectural design celebrate the native Northern California landscape and a deep connection to place. The main house is a series of pavilions with rolling zinc roofs that echo waves and wind patterns coming off the ocean, just visible from the property. Striated color patterns in rammed earth walls extrapolate the gentle curve of existing site topography. The building is passively heated and cooled, and energy uses are supported almost entirely by on site harvesting (PVs). The farm includes comprehensive rainwater and graywater harvesting. The project is LEED Platinum certified.

Situated on the border of a working farm in Suffolk (UK), the Reydon Grove Farm has been designed as a long and narrow flat roofed pavillon, to give the building a sufficient magnitude and scale to correspond sizes of the existing barn and the old dairies on the site.
It is proposed to use the site for a single bungalow that will be sited in the north east corner of the site that is well screened from the wind by the trees towards the east, separating the farm site from the meadows.

Masseria Moroseta: a white stone farmhouse standing proudly on the ridge with views across the olive trees to the sea.
Built using traditional techniques and local materials, the modern architecture is influenced by masserie (farmhouses) of the past. Set in five hectares of olive groves with trees up to 500 years old, Masseria Moroseta is an enclave of pared-down relaxation and rural simplicity.

McIntosh Poris Associates transformed a 1,900-square-foot historic farmhouse, maintaining its blend of existing raw and rustic details, and refreshing others for a contemporary feeling. A consistent palette of materials includes solid-wood floors, crisp white walls, original molding refinished in black, and neutral-toned furniture. Local artists and crafters created much of the furniture from re-used and salvaged industrial materials.

‘Suitable Farmhouse’ is a villa for a mid 40 year old couple who decided to return to their hometown to live with their 80 year-old mother. The villa is intended to provide two individual households under one roof because each party has been upholding their own lifestyles for a long time. Two main private spaces are designed as two independent studios and they are located in opposite corners of the house. The mother has an active lifestyle, where she frequently comes and goes, while the couple is more introverted and reclusive, preferring to stay home, cook, and watch movies. The mother enjoys spending the majority of her time tending to the garden, while the couple enjoys inviting guests with whom to cook and entertain. These two varying sets of influence help to shape the design of this farmhouse.

Situated near Eisenstadt, Burgenland, just beyond the Esterházy winery, is the historic dairy farmhouse of Trausdorf. Until not long ago, the entire estate lay in hibernation, somewhere between agricultural use and dilapidation.In 2012, the Esterházy Foundation held a design competition – in which AllesWirdGut came out winning – for the repurposing and conversion of the architectural ensemble. The first phase of the revitalization is started in 2015 with the former servants’ quarters being reconfigured by AllesWirdGut (architecture) and Mobimenti (interior design) into a function hall for the neighboring winery.

Court Farm is situated in the Langridge Valley, on the outskirts of Bath. It lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty and also the Bath and Bristol green belt. The farm comprises a series of buildings varying in nature, date and quality. At its heart are two Grade II* listed buildings: a C15th farmhouse and a C17th threshing barn. The barn, which has been redundant as an agricultural building for several years, had suffered from years of neglect and was in a poor state of repair.
