Cross Timbers Ranch

Lipan, TX

This ranch house and corporate retreat located in northern Texas features four independent structures designed to navigate a tree lined ridge separating pasture land and an adjacent valley. Each structure serves its own specific purpose: a primary residence, guest house, game room/pavilion and wine cellar/overlook. Breaking the design into multiple structures allowed the project to frame outdoor rooms, collect breezes and integrate itself with the surrounding landscape. Most uniquely, it enabled the owner to control energy usage by limiting the use of lighting and mechanical systems for programmed areas during the majority of the year.

This ranch project really struck us as to this wonderful relationship that is set up with the  site and creating a series of outdoor rooms with different experiences which carried into the interior. This extension between interior/exterior spaces with porches and spaces that are shaded, ways of ventilating and moving air, and this kind of episodic series of interior modern, minimal and beautiful experience. Well crafted.
