Farmageddon is a project located in the idyllic equestrian countryside of Caledon, Ontario. It is a sophisticated rehabilitation project for an intriguing young man, who purchased a log cabin on the outskirts of Toronto in the Niagara Escarpment. The client, a collector of art and a builder himself, envisioned the farm to be an extension of a particular philosophy of life. This would be the home base for his family and a refuge from the onslaught of the city.
Upon examination and commission of the project, our team learned that the project was on protected land, that we would need to be creative with the existing structure. A series of investigation led to a scheme that inherently disguised the log cabin inside a screen which alludes to a hyper contemporary architecture, yet it is only a shell. In essense this project is an illusory state of architecture that mediates the external surroundings of the existing building with the desires for a hyper radical contemporary architecture on the part of the client.
