Land+Shelter designed this state of the art equine assisted therapy facility on an 450 acre heritage ranch outside of Carbondale, Colorado. Our project scope included master planning the site with Connect One Design and supporting a land use application through the growth management system of Pitkin County.
Our energy goals are net-positive for this super low energy-demand facility. With the ample roof space of the riding arena, we believe this project has potential to be an energy generator for the ranch as a whole.
The architectural scope includes an indoor riding arena, a 24 stall barn with a caretaker apartment, a covered round pan, and a series of support structures for hay, equipment, trailers, and additional ranch-related needs. Our goal is to create a facility that blends seamlessly with the site while providing a functional and beautiful facility for guests.
