Medina River Ranch

Medina, Texas
7,000 Sq. Ft.
Jim Keeter

For a site situated in the Medina River Valley in south central Texas, the clients requested a major expansion of an existing structure to fit their young family’s activities while also retaining a focus on the environment and sustainable practices. Throughout the house, ultimate sustainability was achieved through harvesting materials from the site and sympathetically enhancing and reusing existing materials.

The rambling nature of the
wings creates an informality
that belies the sophistication
of the architectural solution

The various connected buildings fit harmoniously within the untouched natural beauty of the site.

The house sits on a slight rise and
spreads out over the river valley in
interconnected masses

Light fixtures, mechanical grilles and hardware were custom designed following the character
of the existing home.
