The Herbal Farm

The Herbal Farm is an eco-community development which combines organic farming and residency. The design is sustainable in its construction and focuses on the integration of the new urban community with nature.  

The landscape brings people closer to nature. Residents learn to cherish the environment and rely on the land. It is a design that combines the principles of a small modern neighbourhood/village and retains the social qualities of the traditional rural living (the appreciation of nature).  

The design includes a small village of residential buildings, cultivations, a range of outdoor public spaces in-between the green and the ponds. Small animals and various plants and tree species grow in the place as the land is fertile.  

Pedestrian and bike paths run between the buildings, linking up to existing external routes. The project’s ecological essence is additionally reflected through timber material use: wooden structure as well as façades of timber cladding. 

Rewinding:  

  1. Ponds improve the biodiversity of the local environment  
  2. More trees are planted to expand the natural area 

Herbs, Greenhouses as part of accommodations, Organic food, Sustainable housing, Eco-friendly, Communal housing
