Private Ranch

Montana

Designed in response to an adjacent residence and vernacular barns from the region, this eight-stall barn in central Montana features heavy timber framing and western cedar siding. The program includes wash and grooming stalls, a lounge/office, large tack rooms, and a loft with a balcony overlooking an outdoor arena. Deep overhangs create covered areas for washing and grooming horses outdoors. A wood floor in the main aisle and a continuous translucent ridge skylight allow generous amounts of natural light indoors.
