DOMAIN has designed a ranch which is shaped per programmatic, environmental, and performance desires based on the client’s identified preferences and a site evaluation. The result is a form that is both foreign and recognizable, comfortable, but unique. Located in a setting specific to Texas, we have conceived the home as a pavilion on a ranch, Smith Ranch is both introverted and extroverted: each space has a relationship either to its interior logic or to the surrounding terrain with certain moments that provide extensive views of the of the ranch. The home is designed as a sequence of connected blocks - an arrangement that eliminates the need for long corridors and hallways. Following the client’s lead, the plan has been organized such that spaces simultaneously feel casual, luxurious and considered.
