This building is a private residence at an organic farm located in rural Maharashtra, near the city of Mumbai. The site is eleven acres in size, undulating with steep contours and terraces. Cared for by the Bhatia family over the years, now this previously barren land is a thriving oasis of green tranquillity with hundreds of fruit trees, and rich biodiversity. The client who commissioned this home is an avid ecologist and advocate of urban composting, in his neighbourhood at Marine Drive.

In order to increase indoor space of this 19th century farmhouse, half of it is respected in it’s current monumental state. Other half is scaled 150% in order to create a larger ground floor, with improved connection to the garden and the possibility to create an extra bedroom at the upper floor.

The goal is to transform the site into a hospitality experience, the feeling of space and program into the art of experience, the actions into a viable and flexible development program.
The border: The listed buildings demarcate the central outdoor space with their shape, they accumulate the cultural activities, touristic infrastructure, hospitality, relaxation and entertainment programs (Interactive Museum, Agri-tourism, Baths, Accommodation). The enhancement of uses with reversible constructions of (container) type in a discreet relationship with the listed buildings reinforces the concept of limit and functions as a transitional element from and to the central area (Central Square), into the diffusion area (Natural Element).

All three requests has each been associated with a bay window and then superposed under a roof that turns into a terrace in front of the house. In total there are 8 rooms including two huts, three terraces, 8.5 meter ceiling on a total surface of about 85 sqm.

Inspired by both agricultural buildings in the area as well as a hundred years of the site as orchard and farm, the Orchard house utilizes simple forms, materials and minimal details to create a weekend retreat and reprieve for the owners and their family.
A meandering drive through meadow fields leads to a semi-public entry garden where cars are kept at a distance and the structure offers only glimpses of life within; visible through a louvered sunscreen wall and the strategically placed punctures that frame precise views of the gardens and distant farm fields.

The internal refurbishing of a farm barn, so that a new generation of farmers can live there, grows to the point of becoming this zoning ordinance project. Such process will lead us to think about the set of huts, sheds, walls and paths which have settled in country houses through the years, and now we need to understand before we work on them, as there has been so little, maybe nothing, done in vain. A set of parts which have shaped the area, corners and tiny squares with the romantic essence of small towns.

Podere Navigliano is an antique tuscan farmhouse in the heart of Sienese Clays where nature and history are the undisputed protagonists. This project is the evolution of thought Smallness which characterized all previous projects of the office.
In this case especially the materials but also the attention to the historical context and the environment are at the heart of the project; the reinterpretation of traditional elements has allowed to find a new language, a new aesthetic inseparably linked to the tradition.

The property is situated at the back on the plot and originally consisted of a typical old farmhouse and an extension dating from the 90s, with a distinct architecture: a fully glazed facade, with a curved shape in plan, with a roof which consists of several parallel smaller roofs. The clash of these two building typologies is a strange thing. This house had become too small for the residents, so there was a need for an extra bedroom, bathroom and if feasible also an enclosed entrance hall.

The following interior design was realized for a restaurant built on a farm surrounded by a lush forest.
Since the menu is characterized by the fact that dairy products, such as cheese and yogurt, made from fresh milk produced on-site at the dairy farm is used in each and all of their dishes, we were tasked with providing a space to attractively showcase said menu by evoking the imagery associated with the power of fresh ingredients and the natural setting of the forest surrounding the farm on which these quality products are made throughout the entire space.

Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains in Stellenbosch and nestled between rolling vineyards, a koppie (small granite hill) and a river below, Hillside is simultaneously arresting and juxtaposed as fits flawlessly into its surroundings. You approach the house up a steep driveway meandering through the vineyards. The driveway and the forecourt are a modern interpretation of a traditional farmhouse. This is characterized overall by the planning of the house’s location but also more specifically by the gravel driveway, expansive forecourt, drive-in open garaging reminiscent of a barn and water feature evocative of an animal’s drinking trough. This modern drinking trough is then fed by a modernist architectural waterspout from the roof of the house.
