The task asked for the expansion and conversion of a rural farm campus into a cultural and accommodation centre. Six new programmatic anchor points are carefully introduced into the building complex, programming its in-between spaces, enlarging the capacity of the small existing buildings and framing a collective open space for various events during the year. Each new program acquired a different simple form that made it distinguishable and gave the addition an exciting sculptural character that contradicts and highlights the simplicity of the existing farm.
