Stables in the Carrières courtyard



Achitecture

The former stables, built of brick and concrete, are distinguished by their remarkable roofs and numerous architectural details - somewhat surprising, given the building's original purpose. These include the corner towers, the copper gable and pavilion roofs, the attic, the dormer windows, and the ventilation turrets.

The quality of the construction is evident, particularly when viewed from the rear courtyard. The building's interior has been refurbished for current needs.
