Text description provided by the architects.

The Ranch Operations buildings presented an opportunity to explore the juxtaposition of simple utilitarian structures against the Texas Hill Country landscape.
Designed with a common 16-foot module, the structural layout for the two buildings is identical, leaving manipulation of the skin system as the primary vehicle for meeting the programmatic needs for the project.

These needs include office space and a shop, maintenance vehicle storage as well as general storage.
The steel volumes are differentiated by function as a planar floating roof with detached perimeter walls for vehicle storage, a more opaque enclosure for the storage building, and a perforated volume in the case of the office structure.
