Pagosa Springs, CO
The project is located on an undeveloped, 780-acre ranch property south of Pagosa Springs, Colorado where the San Juan and Blanco Rivers converge. The architect’s goal was to design a contextual projectplaying off the forms of local ranch and barn structures and regional Indian ruin structures, using reclaimed materials where posible. The main ranch house was designed using reclaimed local woods. The heavy timber used is black stained re-sawn railway bridge timber that had been abandoned. The wall stone is moss rock found on the property, the walls are earth mud with asphalt emulsion, and the roof is made with old corrugated reclaimed steel. The house is situated on a knoll above the ranch center with long vistas of the ranch and beyond.
