St Gerold Provostry Riding Hall

Enclosing a large, open space used for indoor horse riding, the St Gerold Provostry Riding Hall combines both wood and steel to produce a large open-plan structure.

Wood is used to clad the building and provide structural support where needed. The roof and walls use a combination of both steel and wood. Wood struts supporting the roof are set at an angle and are joined together using steel connections, which in turn are supported by steel bars. The combination of wood and steel allows the building to transfer gravity loads back to the surrounding walls. Lateral loads acting on the walls of the building are resisted by steel bracing.
