CONTEXT-BASED DESIGNS

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.

Minimal Living

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.
