Phantom Canyon Ranch, CO
This Phantom Canyon Ranch Cabin is surrounded by the stunning Phantom Canyon Ranch Nature Conservancy, from which it has unobstructed 360 degree views. The site and its visual vistas became a core part of the design; and the home is nestled into the land to minimize its impact. The cabin was designed to reflect a rustic western vernacular, with exposed heavy timber and stone. It employs passive and active solar heating, domestic water and electricity, coupled with a supplemental wind generator which channels power back to the grid. Simplicity and warmth abound both inside and out with bent wood timber and natural local stone. Structural insulated panels create a highly energy efficient wall system; and finished stucco, native rock and reclaimed concrete roof tiles marry the exterior through to the surrounding environ. The entire project utilizes reclaimed, recycled and native materials for a truly sustainable cabin in the wild.
