Elk Valley Tractor Shed is a project designed by FIELDWORK Design and Architecture in 2014. Located within the apple and pear orchards of the Hood River Valley, Oregon, U.S., the project consists of an 820-sqft (76-sqm) structure used to house tractors and farm equipment with an associated parking area ringed by landscaped walls and pathways.
The architectural language is grounded firmly in northwest rural vernacular. Farm buildings of the Pacific Northwest have a rich history at once proud and familiar. They are common sights in rural Oregon, often clearly hand-built by landowners from material nearby, and crafted with the tools available with an austere efficiency. Details are not ornamental, but are in service to performance- honest expressions of function and protection.
