Scott Brownrigg rehouses Royal Horse Artillery

  • Comment

Scott Brownrigg has completed the new £16 million home for the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Woolwich

The mounted unit moved into the stable complex, which will run on its own bio-fuel made from horse manure and bedding, last month from St John’s Wood.

The scheme provides stabling and support facilities for 170 horses as well as provision for the troop’s history gun carriages.

Ed Hayden, the associate architect at Scott Brownrigg, said: ‘From day one, we envisaged the creation of a carbon minus design, creating a facility which would provide more energy than it would consume; sustainability was therefore one of the key drivers.

‘The architecture is simple, elegant and robust, reusing elements of the existing buildings where possible, and creating axes and views onto adjacent heritage landmarks.’
