Modern Ranch In California Promotes Sustainable Farming


architecture modern residence  Modern Ranch In California Promotes Sustainable Farming Hupomone Ranch is an original homestead located in the Chileno Valley, just 3 miles west of downtown Petaluma in California, USA. The ranch had been empty for over 30 years and the owners, a young family with 3 children, wanted to build a barn house that would reflect their commitment to sustainable farming. According to the architects at Turnbull Griffin Haesloop, the simple grounded form of the barn was built to complement the surrounding landscape and capture the long views of the coastal range beyond.



Set into the more opaque north side, the entry provides shelter tucked under the loft above and frames a view through the house to the meadow beyond. The light-filled living area opens up to the long southern view, with the bedroom and kitchen flanking either side. The kitchen’;s slide-away windows open directly to the garden.

Passive heating and cooling with thermal mass and insulation, geothermal, radiant cooling and heating along with solar and photovoltaic panels contribute to the house’s energy efficiency. [Photography courtesy of Turnbull Griffin Haesloop]
