Position within the landscape:

In order to establish a large enough flat surface area for the equestrian facility, the preexisting slope has been divided into several terraces. These terraces provide the necessary surface area required by each independent structure, such as the indoor riding arena, the stables, the open space, the kids club, the operator’s apartment, and subsequently trail away into the open country. Objects such as stables and the adjoining building are incorporated into these intersecting lines, which manifest themselves as batter and supporting wall, whereas the indoor riding arena and the gallery of the open space rest on the landscape.

Indoor riding arena with view over the Stubai mountain region:

The indoor riding arena is designed in the area of conflict between industrial building and landscape.

Using level differences, a light wooden roof structure with profiled sheeting spans the area. While on one side the area itself defines a natural spatial closure, on the opposite side the roof is visually stretched as a necessary wind screen to the terrain edge. This wind screen is realised as a textile membrane without substructure and offers the rider a view over the Stubai mountain region. Between membrane and the wooden ring fence enclosing the riding arena, a gallery establishes above the landscape, which serves as an environment and grandstand.

Further structures, such as the operator’s apartment and the kids club ‘Cavallino’, are placed as wooden forms underneath this roof top, and shape the rear of the arena.

Through this holistic approach, with a figure in the landscape, wooden forms resembling barns as well as a uniting roof which adapts to the terrain slope, the whole construction fits harmonically and naturally into the landscape.
