E+N Arkitektur’s task of creating one of Europe’s top stallion stations required aligning aesthetics with a functional working environment for humans and horses. Nobody was told to hold their horses as E+N Arkitektur was hired to place Blue Hors stallion station in Randbøll, Denmark, near Vejle, firmly among Europe’s equestrian elite. “The facilities had to compete with the biggest and the best,” says Jesper Back, architect and partner at E+N Arkitektur, about the contract which involved both refurbishing and expansion aspects encompassing a total of 20,000 square metres. Each year, the station receives around 2,000 fillies, and activities had to run smoothly during the entire process.
