Chalk & cheese: Situated in the heart of a redundant quarry, this proposal and supporting masterplan locates the epicentre of the ‘chalk-and-cheese’ arable and pastoral landscapes of Wiltshire. The scheme responds to local qualification and skills shortages by drawing upon the concept of Animal Assisted Intervention (AAI) to correct social behaviours amongst local youths. The principle building is informed by biophilic design and the prominence of the vernacular courtyard farmstead. An agricultural, educational and social space are united by a central atrium exhibiting a rotary milking parlour, ensuring that the dairy herd remain a viewable entity at all times. This is accompanied by an on-site residential scheme for students and an anaerobic waste digester to serve the surrounding communities.
