The Studio Gga 'Af Stud Farm' has been constructed in Brazil's Tatui region. The Sao Paulo-based design team has done an excellent job of modernizing the classic barnyard home here, updating the rustic wooden structure with a sleek and entirely futuristic look.

The Af Stud Farm stands upon a slopped landscape. This unusual footing has managed to accommodate an assortment of activity-specific rooms, inclusive of two stables, a training ring, an employee house and a loading dock.

One of the top selling points of this abode is that it is as much functional as it is environmental. Above the polished skylights lay a series of solar panels used for water-heating purposes. This forward-thinking approach to agricultural architecture brings new life to an authentic structure.
