Farm House
Jerash, Jordan

The farmhouse is built on 180 square metres on a 5000 square metre piece of land on hilly terrain that is cultivated with olive trees. It is divided into three blocks: the first contains the kitchen, breakfast area, pantry, and bathrooms; the second houses the living and dining room; and the third has three bedrooms and one bathroom. The play of the different masses corresponds to the landscape beyond, in scale and appearance, and the soft, yellow-stone cladding merges with earthy colors of the landscape. Taking inspiration from the good thermal insulation of rural building materials, the farmhouse uses a wood structure for its roofing system and has well-insulated walls.
