Horse Training Prototype, Lambourn Berkshire
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AoNB) and at the heart of the horse racing industry, the Kurt Systems prototype is a unique facility that combines automotive and roller-coaster technologies to provide a controlled and closely monitored training environment for premium race horses in their early stages of training and development.
Ian Blake whilst at Sutton Griffin Architects was commissioned to design the covered loop that is in excess of 1 kilometre long and contains the track and equipment required by this pioneering horse training system. The covering is a profiled metal roof, designed using a combination of green shades to help blend the large facility into its rural surroundings.
