Project Description:

Ios Ranch – Bainbridge Island, Washington

This existing hunter jumper boarding and training barn is being completely renovated with demolition and replacement of existing stalls and support facilities. New aisle, stalls, groom, tack, feed, office and viewing room are designed to be constructed adjacent to the existing steel covered arena. The site provided opportunity to incorporate both active and passive solar design into the structure. South facing glass walls along a corridor and the viewing room, along with designed thermal storage in masonry mass and appropriate insulation creates a design which will keep occupants comfortable and lower energy costs. The stall walls are lined with bamboo ‘wood’, a renewable resource. Induction lighting fixtures are installed throughout the barn and arena to reduce energy consumption. The 12 stalls are 12’ x 14’ with yokes to the aisle and on outside doors. Completed 2011.
