2800 Square Foot Home (In Progress 2015) Lafayette, LA


The River Ranch House was designed for a chemist and his wife in southwest Louisiana. The project incorporates energy-efficient Structural Insulated Panels, an open plan and loft, an interior garden, and a large courtyard space. The couple desired a minimal design on a relatively small lot. The overall project covers 2400 square feet on the ground floor with an additional 400 square foot loft. Materially, the house will remain quite elemental utilizing primarily concrete and wood. 


The project is scheduled to begin construction early in the summer of 2015.
