Mill Springs Ranch is a modern ranch house designed by Lake Flato Architects, located in Vanderpool, Texas. The interior design was conceived by Poët Interiors.  Nestled at the confluence of two creeks on a Texas Hill Country Ranch, Mill Springs Homestead provides a water’s edge retreat.

Four structures organize around the site of a 20th century dam, forming a courtyard shaded by mature pecan trees and an intimate connection to cool creeks.

Anchored to the dam, the main living and gathering area provides dynamic views of the creeks and valley landforms shaped by time. Rooted in its place, interiors respond to the natural environment and merge with the landscape using a palette of regional materials that are tactile and modern.

Focused on the main creek and pecan grove, bedrooms leverage two treasures in Texas climate: water and shade. A series of artifacts crafted of locally quarried limestone, steel and glass, Mill Springs reflects the spirit of the original dam.

Lone Pine Compound House by Carney Logan Burke Architects

The Lone Pine compound house is set at the base of the Teton Range in a resort development at the edge of an open valley. Sited to take advantage of open spaces and view sheds, the house is oriented to screen neighboring structures while capitalizing on near views of the adjacent ski resort and surrounding mountain ranges.

Bridge View Residence / Kendle Design Collaborative

Bridge View Residence faced more than the typical obstacles of a desert build including unusually restrictive zoning and setback conditions along with a difficult build site. Abutting a desert wash and steep drop-off in the land, the plot didn’t offer many options for creating a beautiful sprawling home.

Cap St-Martin House / Bourgeois Lechasseur Architects

The Cap St-Martin House is located at the end of a long winding road in Potton. Most of the neighbouring properties are made up of second homes isolated from each other by a mixed forest, facing Lake Memphremagog.
