Equestrian Centre Merricks

Mornington Peninsula,
Victoria, Australia

Located on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, the Equestrian Centre is the combined design effort of Watson Architecture + Design and London studio Seth Stein Architects.

The 1,000sqm complex is set on an undulating site that was levelled and drained before construction and was designed exclusively for the breeding of warm blood eventing horses.

The stables are framed by a reinforced wall of rammed earth that runs along the southern border of the levelled section of the site in a reverse-J shape, offering robust protection from southern weather elements.
