Designing Homes in Brasada

At Fowler Home + Design, we are currently designing homes for Brasada Ranch located in Central Oregon. This 1,800 acre ranch lies in the high desert, overlooking pastures with prime views of the Cascade Range. Voted one of the best resorts in the Pacific Northwest, Brasada Ranch features a community barn, a farmhouse style bed and breakfast, a post office, general store, recreation center & golf course.  Taking inspiration from CCY Architects who designed the main buildings on the ranch, our homes will be a mix of desert, mountain, and modern styles. The desert is simple, a place of harmony, linear lines and abundant views. The architecture plays off the landscape with large windows inviting the outdoors in. Natural elements are used heavily throughout the design like wood and stone. The colors are those of clay, sand stone, and wood; also inspired by the elements that surround. Simple soaring spaces allow for peaceful relaxation mimicking the desert and mountain landscapes. A combination of materials and textures add dimension and warmth, bringing in the cozy mountain-cabin feel. Lastly, stunning angles, glass and exposed concrete add dramatic contemporary styling. The main buildings of the resort at Brasada were all designed to meet LEED Gold certification, and the ranch was awarded “Sustainable Community of the Year” in 2007. Therefore, thoughtful and sustainable design will also be key.  Our homes will seek to be charming, rustic, contemporary, timeless, minimal, and organic.
