The Sheep Stable designed by 70F Architecture is located in Almere, Netherlands. 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 large amount of hay. The 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 stable is designed to make it possible for the public to visit the building and experience the keeping of sheep up close. At one end of the building, on the second floor, a room for the shepherd and a small office is realised. There are sleeping facilities for the shepherd, who has to stay over night in case any sheep are lambing. Work in and around the stable will be done by, amongst others, people who live with a mental social or psychiatric disability, supervised by the shepherd.
