Equestrian Centre Merricks

Mornington Peninsula,
Victoria, Australia

Located on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, the Equestrian Centre is collaboration between watsonarchitecture+design and Seth Stein Architects, London.

The 1,000sqm complex designed exclusively for the breeding and training of ‘warm blood’ eventing horses has a  ‘J’ shape plan that  turns it back to the prevailing south west winds for protection.

The timber framed and clad building is anchored to the site by a 100m long rammed earth wall and is protected from the sun by one 1250sqm continuous zinc clad roof.
