CALIFORNIA EQUESTRIAN RESORT
Project: California Equestrian Resort
Location: Lake County, California, USA
Partners: Juan Ignacio Ramos & Ignacio Ramos
As part of the Guenoc & Napa Valley Project, the Polo and Equestrian Development is located in Lake County, California. The California Equestrian Resort includes a polo and equestri- an club, a lodge and a residential development.
We were captivated by the beauty of the site, with its moun- tains, meadows and lakes. The first goal was to absorb and understand the essence of the place in order to relate the project to the context and reduce the impact of the construction on the environment.
The proposed architecture has a pure and simple language. The intention was to make the buildings blend with the land- scape with the use of earth berms and planted roofs, as well as local stone, exposed concrete and local hardwood.
As a precious element in this area, water is present in the design of all the buildings.
