Through an agricultural complex which transforms a former golf course into a meadow, the aim is to promote a traditional English know-how, namely sheep’s wool, while modernising the process. A sheepfold and spinning workshop are reinvested in the old Club House of the golf.

The spinning mill will be developed parallel to the highway on an existing slab. It is the showcase of the project. A transparency is created in resonance with the mobility exerted by the highway and the tramway in connection with the movement of the spinning machines. On the other side, openings overlook the meadows in order to keep a coherence between the breeding of sheep and the valorization of their fleeces into yarn.

The idea is to separate the production of the product from the public. The upper part is in line with the existing buildings.

The project is intended to be landscaped, ecological, economic, educational and societal. The whole project is developed using sustainable techniques: working the soil, raising and respecting animals, managing water and waste, developing biodiversity and diversifying the agricultural structure. All of this is found in an agricultural complex, which is intended to be simple to implement and to serve as an example for other golf courses that are being transformed into meadows.
