River Valley Ranch

Location

Carbondale, CO

Situated in a rural setting within a golf course community, this project investigates, re-interprets, and modernizes the local ranch vernacular. The architecture introduces a playful dichotomy between modern and traditional building forms and materials. The exterior palette reflects local, historical materials and methods, however articulates them in progressive ways. Subtle rotations of 5 degrees in plan section and elevation activate and energize the architecture towards Mt. Sopris and the surrounding natural views.
