From the architect. New stable for 600 milk producing cows and in connection to a family owned old farm. The crosslike ground shape of the stable connects to different and important surrounding spaces and qualities. The shape creates a new center and yard towards the old farm and housing. And it relate to an exposure towards the close passing main road and the beautifully curvy and hilly green landscape behind the farm.

The goal and intention for the client and the Danish building fund Realdania is to create a proposal and inspiration for the future farming landscape in Denmark were the overall development is towards large scale productions and buildings.

 Our main target for the building was to obtain an open structure on the green field with as much outsight as well as insight for the cows, staff, local community and visitors. The result is a very came, light and super ventilated shelter which again results in a healthy cow environment and a surprisingly good milk production.

It has been of major importance to fit the shape and the architecture of the stable with the landscape so the qualities of the hills and the surrounding not is lost but is enhanced and respected.

The simplicity of a building and respecting the surrouding environment are elements of succes.

Very pure and clean, I like the relation to old buildings....I would like to have something like this in my window view

This is great... design at the simplest of applications. So good to see rather than a large square framed box, the only alternative to most farmers.

This is just beautiful. Respectful of the rural landscape. I am curious about any sustainable or technology innovations that may have been involved. Or perhaps the sq.m. cost as farmers are the cheapest clients you can find!

This is beautiful, the geometry is so simple and refined.
