Architecture Competition: Homestead – Design a farmhouse
Longing for green
“My wish is to always live like this, living quietly in the corner of nature.” — Claude Monet
The lush of the farms is something that attracts everyone’s attention. Especially the urban dwellers, who live in a concrete jungle and are seldom exposed to the natural realm. And oftentimes these spaces are preferred to live in and attracted towards.
The lush and abundant natural availability creates a kind of environment that makes it attractive to the people who wish to cherish living in spaces that extend beyond the cities and roads.
And often in such environments, one wishes to stay and live a little longer. This can only be possible through resorts, hotels, and other stay places that help them experience both worlds.
Although there are rare places where one can have a luxurious stay as well as experience nature at its best and at our doorsteps.
Brief of the Competition
“Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
We need to be able to live in nature rather than just being a part of it. This requires a kind of design that is integrating itself into nature rather than including nature into it. And this can be made possible by creating a kind of homestead that bends all the boundaries between the context and the design and becomes an integral part of it.
Thus creating a farmhouse that provides a refuge to the people along with an experience of farming, animal raising, and sustainable living at the same place. This design challenge is aimed to bring the natural context and the design together in harmony by creating a structure that is not just built on the site but is very much an inherent part of it.
