STONE BARN MEDITATION CAMP


The Stone Barn Meditation Camp architecture competition is a partnership with SRED property developers to create a multipurpose recreational space. Participants are tasked with presenting ideas for a venue, which focuses on wellness tourism and offers holistic outlets such as meditation and yoga. 


The Stone Barn Meditation Camp will serve as a guesthouse, located in a repurposed stone barn in the heart of Latvia, with the aim of further popularising eco tourism. As one of the greenest countries in Europe, Latvia already benefits from a thriving ecotourism trade. 


The Stone Barn Meditation Camp will look to become a regional example for green building practice. As competition winners will be put forward for consideration for construction, designs need to place a strong emphasis on eco-friendly and cost-effective building techniques. 


Designs for the building complex in this competition need to include accommodation for guests of meditation camps and other small events, permanent accommodation for the groundskeeper, and an inventive and eco-friendly use of space for guests to practice meditation and yoga.

The stone barn was built in 1875 and operated as a sawmill until the late 1990s. All the equipment has since been removed, and part of the building has been demolished. Participants can download information on the existing structure, as well as the historical appearance from the competition website. Participants can decide to restore the stone barn to its original historical design or reimagine its structure in a new way. However, the existing building cannot be demolished, only added to or enhanced.
