black butte ranch welcome center

The Black Butte Ranch Welcome Center will put a new face on the entrance to The Ranch. Eliminating an eye–sore of a gatehouse and placing a more inviting structure to the side opens the entry to the sweeping meadow vista. The new Welcome Center emulates the form of Black Butte from approach and frames Mt. Washington in the lobby. The building has been designed to usher Black Butte Ranch into a more contemporary style while paying homage to the original “Sea Ranch” aesthetic. It will function as the front desk for The Ranch and will lessen the burden on the historic Lodge.
