The Branded T Ranch

« of 15 »

Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, this 200 acre site is the location of a bed/breakfast and an exotic animal breading ranch. The site was altered to accommodate a 4 acre lake and provide safe and secure areas of breading for animals like African Kudu, Arabian Oryx, Bongo and many others. This is the second building in a master plan which consists of: the lake, breading area, foreman’s residence, party barn and this bunkhouse for rental. The challenge is to include all of these features while not making the site seem congested. 

Planned sites for the location of each building, among the trees and in different areas of the ranch, allow for the sense of space and solitude. The desire is to create architectural buildings that integrate with nature and reflect a contemporary twist to the influential and prevalent German Hill Country architecture of Texas. The aesthetic composition of each building consists of gables, natural/local stone, metal roof, metal siding, board and batten siding, broken pitches and covered patio’s which are all items typically reflective of German Hill Country architecture.

The Private Party Barn

« of 6 »

During the 1700’s, the Mohawk Valley was witness to many of the major battles of the French and Indian war and Revolutionary War. A timber barn built in c.1870 stood, located in a town in the Mohawk Valley of New York, as a reflection of the great cultural changes that took place during the 1800’s. This barn was designed and built as a hay and dairy barn to provide milk products to the town and neighboring communities.

This specific barn is one of the largest barns ever built in New York and measures 40’ wide by 100’ feet long. Timber framing was the process by which this barn was constructed and, basically, reconstructed. The process of timber framing requires hand-cut mortise and tendon joints to hold the framework of the barn together and without any type of metal fasteners. Quite a feat considering the barn has massive timbers spanning the full width, up to 40’ long. The rare species of wood, Hemlock, was used to construct this barn and is unique due to the fact that it was decimated by loggers during the 1800’s. This barn was carefully dismantled, moved to this project site, reconstructed the original way and given a second life in Texas.
