Firle Riding School

Firle, E. Sussex

Generations of horses, carriages and cars have lived in Firle's Georgian Riding Stables. These stalls have now been swept out as the yard and the old Riding School hosts events including weddings and sometimes the Great British Bake Off. The Estate asked us to turn a boiler room into a new entrance to the old sand school, and the grooms' kitchen and television room into male and female loos. We designed the entrance to the sand school around theatre stage doors that lead from tense back of house wings straight onto set. For the loos we developed a finish to live up to the sturdy but elegant stables next door: a new colorful and theatrical piece of history that is able to cope with high footfall and only get better with wear and tear.
