La Shed Architecture has designed a large agricultural barn in Quebec, Canada, with an overhanging tin roof.
Located in the agricultural plains of the Montérégie region, Au Gré des Champs is first and foremost a family affair.
In the early 1990s, when farms were becoming increasingly large and industrialised, the Gosselin family turned to artisanal organic cheese production, thus choosing to focus on the value of the terroir and eco-friendly practices.
The new barn served as an opportunity to provide cows and staff with a pleasant environment that will stand the test of time, and to incorporate respect for the rural landscape and agricultural heritage into the design of the barn.
This project has been longlisted in the business building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
