black butte ranch community complex
The Black Butte Ranch Community Complex evolved into the current design after months of participation from owner committees, individual homeowners, and the Black Butte Ranch Association Board. The final design incorporates the Ranch Administration offices, a Post Office, and Homeowner conference space into one building. An adjacent structure houses Police Services. The design of the new buildings takes cues from other public structures on The Ranch, with shed roofs and light–stained vertical cedar siding. They also achieve an appropriate level of sustainability through the use of generous natural light, low VOC materials, placement of combined building support spaces, and high–efficiency ground source heat pumps.
