Urban Ranch

About this project

General overview:

Urban Ranch was inspired by the homeowner’s cattle ranch in western Wyoming. He loves spending countless hours at the ranch with his children who enjoy riding horses and living the ranch life, but recognized that having a place to call home closer to Jackson would make things easier as the children aged. He wanted to bring some of the ranch with them. Initially, he envisioned a compact version of the ranch house, but at the urge of architects, he decided to go with something more modern. The ranch property includes a 5,700-square-foot, two-story main house with an attached garage, a 985-square-foot, two-story detached guest house and a two-stall horse barn with hayloft, paddocks and riding arena. The main home is divided into two buildings separated by glass breezeway walls featuring oversized sliding glass doors that make the outdoor living spaces easy to access.

What makes it special

The forms of the various buildings are modern at heart with structural elements of industrial steel and exposed metalwork. The crisp lines and industrial feel is interrupted by the use of a warm and organic palette featured in the siding, cabinetry, flooring and ceiling.

Type of building
