Farm House. Jerash, Jordan
Architect: A R D Designs
Design Team : Dina Al Ahmad , Mahmoud Zarf
Year : 2015 , completed
Location : Jerash , Jordan
Area : 180 m2
The project is a farmhouse that is located at the outskirts of Jerash; a family escape that is at a 30-minutes drive from the city of Amman.
The building sits on a hilly terrain that is cultivated with olive trees. The play of masses corresponds to the natural landscape lines with a fragmented composition that relates to the scale of its surrounding fabric.The grouping of internal spaces follows the massing of the farmhouse, while being connected through transparent passageways. The three masses are cladded with soft yellow, small-format stone that contrasts with the Ammani material palette, and mergers with the earthy natural colors around.
