Chamounix Equestrian Center
ARCHER & BUCHANAN ARCHITECTURE IS PROUD to contribute to the Work to Ride Horsemanship, Equine Sports and Education Program at the Chamounix Equestrian Center in Philadelphia. Work to Ride, founded in 1994, is a community-based program that aids under-resourced urban youth by providing a natural setting in which participants can develop discipline, responsibility and life skills—as well as confidence and self-esteem—through constructive activities centered on horsemanship, equine sports and education. To assist Work to Ride in achieving their goals for expanded programming, Archer & Buchanan developed designs for the renovation of their 13,500 SF existing stable along with a new 45,000 SF indoor equestrian arena. The firm has remained committed in our support of the project—providing all services needed to get the project approved by the City and working to build awareness of the project, including creating imagery used in the fundraising efforts that are bringing the Work to Ride vision to fruition. The project breaks ground in Spring 2023.
