The Dairy House is a refined vision mixing a variety of reclaimed material such as stone, iron and wood to provide a classy place to milk goats. The gabion steel boxes hold demolished concrete which support the exterior seats. An incorporated pen and milking platform complete the highly functional building. The building speaks to contemplation as much as it does to work. Together the projects inform a large audience about how green building practices can duly enhance both the financial and aesthetic value of a structure via good design.
