Thanks to its sensitive integration into its rural environment and the life-enhancing experience it offers to its occupants, the new barn is a unique project in the current agricultural landscape. Its combination of traditional and contemporary materials allows it to preserve its relationship with the built environment, while giving it a sensitivity that respects the territory, and thus respect the farmers family values. Brought together in the same welcoming space, cows, workers, and visitors move freely around the barn, where every step represents a new opportunity to experience farm life.
