Nya Nibble Gård

Jury’s statement
A monumental volume inserts itself into the anthroposophical farming landscape. The cross-section shows a project where varying levels meet the animals’ needs. The generous openings and openplan layout give the livestock a degree of self-determination. Modern farming practices combine sympathetically with the space and with animal welfare considerations.
Natural light from overhead works with the large doors on the gable ends to give the cathedral-like volume an airy feel and highlight its structural elements. The use of robust materials breaks up the space and adds a level of detail that remains in keeping with the barn’s purpose.
This is an insightful, functionalist project that shows respect for animals, humanity and nature – a carefully considered project that should set the benchmark for agricultural buildings of the future.
