This educational dairy farm, open to the public (teachers, researchers and agricultural professionals) puts the emphasis on a diversity of timber structures and finishes. Three distinct elements present three types of structure and interior design. The pen-style stables use frame components constructed using box elements in laminated timber. The straw covered stable area is situated underneath a trellis type structure in circular timber sections. Finally, the reception building and the circulation zones exploit a glued laminated timber structure.
