K-farm challenges urban farming under extreme conditions and makes farming into STEM education for all people. Because of the coastal condition along Victoria Harbour, we have combined three types of farming to suit our specific site and climate: Hydroponics to provide 365 farming in all conditions, Aquaponics to study how fish and plants coexist, Organic with various height and species to serve as inclusive farming and maintain the community’s ecosystem.

The site is located on a peninsula overlooking the U.K.’s largest stretch of inland water, Loch Lomond. An existing cafe marks the entrance situation for visitors arriving either by car from the A82 or by boat. From the car park with adjoining jetty, a system of pathways lead onto the peninsula and continue along its exposed edges formed by big rocks, or through the site sheltered by trees and bushes. The rocks locate the site high above the water’s edge and a series of steps and easily accessible ramps lead the visitor through the sloped inside of the site. The pathways interlink, creating a parcour with rendezvous points adding emphasis to these junctions.  The topography of the site allows the surrounding landscape to be experienced as a panorama, with the site itself visible from afar, like a rock amongst water.
