Sustainable luxury stables in Mexico

Mexican architects APT (Archictura para todos) developed an equestrian center on the highest point of Cuernavaca, Mexico.

The project was published on the popular architectural website Designboom. They wrote:

Aesthetically echoing simple powerful geometries and terraced construction of the region, the project also takes on another layer of sustainability by using a combination of locally sourced materials and labor, rainwater harvesting, biologically filtering grey water for irrigation, LED lighting and solar cells, along with earth-based paints used in the interior.

Personally I think it looks great from an architectural point of view, but I feel sorry for the grooms who have to work there. It looks highly unpractical with all the steep ramps and different levels.
