A Modern Farm House

A Modern Farm House

The concept of “plowing” was a preliminary boost to the conceptual design phase of the project. The “plowing”, which is an arranged intervention in a land compound, divides it into strips or sowing areas. Those areas which are subspaces of the plot appear in the villa in the configuration of different spaces, with the rhythms of “plowing” producing the transitions between the public and the private. The spaces create an organized longitudinal system and a random widthwise system, of the person and his movement at home.

The Home design combined a program with existing sloped land topography, on a long and narrow lot measuring 0.5 acres. The house is a complex which connects two single story separate “homes” which serve the parent unit, children’s unit, parking + guest bathroom + kitchen.  Connecting the homes was done using a shed – a light structure which combines glass, wood and steel and serves the program of dining and accommodation. The outdoor area incorporates a front garden with an adjacent ramp to the parking area and the guest footpath, leading to the back garden which includes a swimming pool, hospitality areas as well as a view of the rear plot.
