Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre
Client: Sheepdrove Organic Farm
Duration: 2000 – 2003
Sheepdrove, one of the largest organic farms in the UK, required a highly sustainable Centre for the promotion of organic farming and biodiversity. The Centre includes conference, study and education spaces, a restaurant, shop, and new farm offices. The site is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The building is naturally ventilated and is built of sustainable materials. Waste products are bio-degraded in reed beds. The design reinterprets the concept of the Long Barn and utilises innovative timber engineering.
