Elizita Ranch

Hebronville, TX

Inspired by the hauntingly powerful character of the South Texas Plains, Elizita Ranch is comprised of structures and shade canopies designed to invite inhabitation of this rugged environment.
The Vision

Elemental geometric structures of smooth burnished stucco are combined with rustic cedar trellis canopies to create a shaded compound with protected views out to the landscape.
