Located on a 191-acre site in Taos County, NM, Blackstone Ranch promotes ecological awareness and preserves local farming heritage through sustainable agricultural practice. LDG inherited the project as a group of ranch elements constructed to meet the owner's needs as Blackstone Ranch grew. LDG redesigned or completed many key structures throughout the ranch and composed a master plan encompassing a main house, agricultural barns and facilities, and a land scaping scheme to synthesize the various site elements and structures. By the summer of 2009, the Ranch aims to be finished and fully-functioning; an apt setting for the hands-on teaching and learning of sustainable ecological practices.
