Rancho Cielo, Agoura         El Rancho Cielo is a 4000 square foot modern hacienda on a 2.5 acre plateau. Its design is shaped by dramatic rock formations, layered mountain ranges and spectacular sunsets.

Like a desert village, the house spreads over the entire plateau with its stark design suited to the rocky site. It is a sequence of spaces starting along a 700 foot long driveway. Walls growing out of the site lead you, while colors suggest mauve earth tones, grey-green landscape and red sunsets.

Rancho Cielo reveals itself in stages with the guest house greeting you at the top of the driveway. The main areas of the house in separate pavilions are linked by glass corridors. It is a quiet, serene design that unites with the abruptness of the landscape.
