Archstudio, ‘Organic Farmhouse’ in Tangshan (China)

Outside Tangshan, a city in China’s Hebei Province, is this food processing plant called ‘Organic Farmhouse,’ a work of the Beijing firm Archstudio. The design is inspired in the low courtyard residences that line hutongs, emblems of the Chinese past. The 1,720-square-meter building adapts to the environment, fragmenting its scale in four independent modules: a storehouse for materials, a mill, an oil pressing workshop, and a packing area. Organized around an inner courtyard where grain is sun-dried, the wooden blocks with translucent facades are raised on a 60-centimeter cement base.
