Children Farm School

This project consists of an educational farm school in Edgemere that targets the area’s predominantly young population. The massing consists of an L-shaped layout, elevated on a four-foot berm that embraces and protects existing housing structures from flooding risks. The L-shape also serves as a linear procession for the educational farm program. Various programs attach to the main branch sequentially, starting from the domestic scale at the north-western end to the more public scale facing the south-eastern end. Since the program targets the younger generations, playfulness is achieved on the interior through an exploration of curved surfaces that attach to the steel trusses. This creates an element of surprise, contrasting the traditional-looking exterior with an organic and vibrant interior.
