This project was on the site of a traditional farm steading. The existing building formed a quadrangle of stone built barns. Unsuitable for modern farming methods, the buildings became unused and over many years, decay set in.
The opportunity arose to create a racehorse training yard on the site. The conversion and repair the existing courtyard enabled the old building to become the focal point of the training yard. Other new build facilities were added including an equine pool, forage barns, covered ride and staff accommodation, all designed to reflect the character form and materials of the former steading.
