Carraig Ridge is proof that careful planning and meticulous execution produce a beautiful and lasting result. Retreats are designed based on principles of simplicity, functionality, superior craftsmanship and rich materiality, and each decision is rooted in thorough consideration of sustainability, adaptability, and environmental strategies.
The vision for each Retreat at Carraig Ridge is to incorporate history and nature into an innovative, contemporary and original design. Above all, we hope to create spaces that are unique, luxurious, appropriate and beautiful. Pursuing this goal ensures that each Retreat enhances the value of its neighbours and the community as a whole.
The Master Plan for Carraig Ridge fosters tranquil rural lifestyle. The design for each individual Retreat should follow the same idea, and be rooted in simplicity and connection to the surrounding landscape. Each house will be designed to make the minimum impact on the environment both during construction and once it functions as a home. Carraig Ridge is a place to build what you need, not what you can.
Carraig Ridge was conceived to support the environment, rather than dominate it. The Retreats at Carraig Ridge must adhere to the same essential principle. Refined and graceful dwellings, each inspired by the specific terrain of its lot, allow a balance of habitation and preservation. Within the broad context of contemporary style, designs should focus on creating a harmonious relationship between Retreat and landscape.
