From the architect. A picturesque village of 500 people located in the centre of the Káli basin. The estate was founded in 1949 for the purpose of animal husbandry. Along the years the facility had declined, the buildings had become dilapidated. The estate has changed hands which meant that the animal husbandry ended.

In the coming years the neighbouring almond farming will be the facility’s main activity. The tearing down of some ramshackle buildings and the renovation of others will gradually lead to the revitalisation of the estate. The first stage of the process is the refurbishment of a farming building erected in the 1950s with a total area of nearly 870 square metres, as well as the construction of a residential building that will house flats for the owner and the caretaker of the estate.

The new building replaces an old storage facility. Its structure follows the gable and pitched roof pattern but it uses untraditional materials and detailing. The agriculture-inspired details, the wood-covered sliding door, the metal sheet are to counterbalance the typical conservative-romantic local style. The owner intends to create a self-sustaining small farm in a few years.The Baron House in Sweden, designed by John Pawson, serves as a model for the family house.

I like the combination of wooden finish, the white colored wall and some metal elements! The form of the new building is also great! I wonder what was used for roof cladding? It would be good to see a picture about it which shows how does it look like now.
