The client wanted to create three separate American Barns housing approximately 38 horses, in a beautiful quiet setting, with the existing oak tree remaining as a feature at the centre of the three buildings.
The three American Barns were arranged with connecting walkways in between. The two smaller barns each having 10 stables, tack room, feed room and with shower facilities on the outside. The larger barn contained 18 stables along with ancillary rooms all under a composite insulated roof with a light ventilated ridge, block built inner walls and cladding on the external face.
The materials chosen allowed the buildings to blend in with the surrounding woodlands and natural colours of the environment. A rainwater harvesting system was also used to regenerate the water from the roofs of the three buildings
The barns were constructed with sliding doors at both ends which not only gave good access for the movement of the ponies but provided for excellent ventilation with central drainage running throughout the barns.
The small barns each had 10 stables and the big barn had 18 stables, doors and windows were all supplied by Hau for whom we are UK agents. The quality galvanised stables were chosen for their beautiful design and flowing curved lines.
