Located in the Village of Indian Hill outside of Cincinnati, Turner Farm is a certified organic farm and educational facility which has been in operation since the early 1800’s. To increase its educational outreach the foundation chose to create a unique cooking institute for classes, visiting chefs and food-centric events. Using an existing barn as the shell, the challenge became how to renovate the building without compromising its rustic nature. Our strategy is to be minimally invasive, maintaining the character and integrity of the vernacular space.
