n expanding equestrian business
required a new stable to be designed and
constructed on the owners’ property to
allow them to conduct their activities
from one site. The project specified safe, comfortable
accommodation for the horses, as well as separate
areas for grooming and storage of riding gear.
Adopting a globally recognisable barn style
with a modern twist, the stables needed to be
sensitive to climate change, taking advantage
of a north-facing position. A large open floor
space prevents congestion, while allowing for
adaptive re-use of materials and facilities in the
future. This area is most sensitive to the horses’
needs, boasting excellent cross-flow ventilation,
a fully insulated roof, and widespread use of
tilt-up precast concrete walls.
The building is also fireproof, emberproof and
birdproof, with the installation of high-level
screens and rubberised protective matting.
Playing on the classic barn design with
a robust, modern style, the building has
become a showcase, allowing the owners to
operate their horse training, agistment and
exhibitions just steps from home.
Working closely with Willis Design Group to
create this project, A.T. Brine and Sons applied
a vast knowledge of building, adding rainwater
systems, dust suppression systems and other items
in an effective and collaborative manner.
