Dalat Farm

Commercial, Landscape / 1st Quarter 2020

Dalat Farm

Located in the hills of Khe Sanh, south of Dalat City, in the highlands, this 2-hectare site opens out to a valley. The farm is intended as a prototype project, blending architecture, landscape and economic interests—taking into consideration the ecological environment, especially soil, water and the biosphere.

Seeking an alternative to the dominant model of omnipresent monocultures and greenhouses, which are the main reasons behind poor soil quality, groundwater quality and groundwater reserves, the project team developed an approach relying on polyculture, combining crops and animal husbandry without chemically interfering with the biological processes.
