the powerful weed “acanthus” or “bears-breech” that grows in the “Roeg vowel” – forest and “stockroom” – park in Almire under control. To centralize and house this population, a sheep stable was needed. The stable is designed with an a-symmetrical homogeneous cross-section. The part of the building where the sheep reside is relatively low; the high part is situated above the (public) pathway and the hay storage section, making it possible to store a maximum amount of hay.
This shape also creates a natural flow for the air inside the building, which is refreshed by two slits at the foot of each long side of the building. The detailing of the corner of the building, where the long facade ends and the gable starts, is extremely important for the overall experience of the architecture of this building. It emphasizes the cross sectional shape of the building, and finishes the long facade of the building, which starts as a facade and slowly becomes roof.
The construction (pine) and cladding (Western Red Cedar) are made of wood. Only the curved girders are made of steel. This was done to emphasis the tube-like shape of the interior, which would have been less strong using twice as high wooden girders. The tube has three strategically placed daylight openings, of which one is close to the floor level, so people can look inside even when the building is closed. All vertical walls in the stable and office are clad with beech plywood.
