Wonga Park Equestrian
The brief for the stables was to convert an old apple orchard coolroom and ‘lean-to’ hay shed into an intimate three-horse stable facility for an equestrian rider and her dressage horses. The design strategy was to recycle the primary ‘shed’ materials of the old structure and integrate them into key details and features of the new building. Our objectives were to provide ventilation, daylight, safety and durability. The result was a highly functional, low-cost facility with a refined but rustic ‘rural’ aesthetic.
