You will probably mistake this incredible structure for a massive bird's nest, but the Stork Nest Farm is actually a horse-riding arena.
The area used to be a farmstead with a distillery, but it has been abandoned since the 1980s. When the architects from SGL Projekt were assigned to revitalize the land, they found that the area's remaining residents were storks that lived in the distillery's chimney. Thus, storks became a symbol for the new riding arena and the Stork Nest Farm building was born.
The building itself is a giant dome with a skylight at the very top of the roof. The structure is made with glulam timber beams, while the exterior is constructed out of translucent polycarbonate and covered in over 200 tons of oak logs. Inside, there is a circular riding arena as well as a hotel, conference room, restaurant and other facilities.
