A strong agricultural vocabulary was developed relying on the repetitious potency of patterned windrows, hedgerows, vineyards, and orchard grids. ‘Domestic landscapes’ were developed as interventions within the greater agricultural landscape.

The project is an assemblage of buildings within a carefully modulated landscape, a modern villa framed in an agrarian setting.

MFLA began with the vineyard assessment and development. Vineyard layouts and agricultural requirements greatly informed the master plan with agricultural patterning taking precedent.
