The project is located on a remote ranch in Colorado. The Guest house is sited on a ridge overlooking the ranch and river.
This office previously master planned all structures on the site and were involved in restoration of the local river.  We were commissioned to design the "Mother's Guest House" for the owners mother who was a distinguished artist.
The project budget for the 1,840 square foot guest house was $350,000.
The design evolved into a contemporary slab wall Anasazi style with sliding pocket windows, adobe plaster walls, "walk in" fireplace, exposed steel and heavy timber framing. The owner is a railroad enthusiast so we incorporated abandoned bridge timber for beams and posts, and reclaimed steel railroad track for exposed rafters to honor his obsessions.
During construction the owners mother passed away and never occupied the house. The owner has since preserved the house and gallery in memory of his mother and her art.
