This ranch is situated in the mesas of Western Colorado. The building site, an old homestead first settled in 1882, had an existing wood cabin and an assembly of accessory farm buildings, all of which were preserved and incorporated into the design of a new home– comprising an assembly of historic and new structures sympathetic to local western vernacular. The primary structure was an open timber post and beam frame system typical of the hay barns of the region. The oversized roof, projecting well beyond the perimeter envelope, served as the principal environment moderating system. 

The Project was awarded the Chicago Athenaeum American Architectural Award in 2009 and the AIA New York State Design Award in 2008.
