Estudio Ramos' Polo Stable Design Lets Horses Graze on the Roof

Horses can benefit from thoughtful architecture just as much as people can, and Estudio Ramos' newly built polo stables prove that to be the case. The stables, which sit outside of Buenos Aires and were built for a professional polo player's horses, feature a grass-topped roof that the horses can easily climb to, giving them extra space for grazing without having to stray far from their pens.

With its pasture-like roof, the Estudio Ramos' design is meant to serve the animals it houses while limiting its visual impact on the surrounding environment. The studio is in La Pampa, the Argentinian plains that stretch through the center of the country, so a low profile is essential to avoid disrupting the area.
