Equestrian Centre and Theatre Experience

In considering the design of environmentally sustainable stabling for over 600 thoroughbred horses, we decided to challenge the traditional ‘barn’ method in favour of bespoke stables each climatically controlled relative to the breed. Avoiding detrimental air-conditioning as a means of tempering the environment, passive techniques were utilised to control the extremes in temperature and humidity. We used similar techniques in creating comfort levels for the visitors in the show theatres around the complex.
