CEN­TURY-OLD SWISS FARM GETS AN EX­CIT­ING NEW MAKEOVER

Ekaruna - - News Round Up -

A Zurich-based stu­dio, EM2N, have con­verted a 150-yearold farm com­plex into an as­sort­ment of residential and of­fice blocks. The plot is the 7,000 square-me­tre Ham­mer Farm es­tate in Cham, Switzer­land. EM2N have ren­o­vated the en­tire site, which has been adapted and changed over the years but never com­pletely re­stored at one time. In or­der to cre­ate ad­di­tional ac­com­mo­da­tion, the ar­chi­tects added con­crete and tim­ber-clad blocks, ex­tended the barns and re­mod­eled the farm­houses.

Amongst the con­crete lie patches of green­ery, with the build­ings sur­round­ing a paved court­yard con­tain­ing gravel, grass and aes­thetic slop­ing path­ways.
