Behind the historical buildings of the ‘Ons Genoegen’ farmstead, a new horse stable, comprising 40 horse stalls, a horse shop and a riders’ café, will be built. The entire programme will be housed in a U-shaped courtyard building modelled on the typology of 19th-century northern European stud farms. The inner side of the central courtyard will be articulated by a continuous timber arcade beneath which a reiteration of doors leads to the stalls. In the central axis of the new complex and in line with the existing buildings is a portal providing access to the outdoor ring and a public bridle path. In this way the stables become a recognizable meeting place for horse lovers in the local network of walking and riding trails.
