The Sea Ranch is one of the few residential communities in the world that has redefined the relationship between man and nature. The concept of “living lightly on the land” has been translated to innovative, site specific architecture. Bull Stockwell Allen’s five-star eco resort project for Passport Resorts honors The Sea Ranch design and planning traditions while drawing on state-of-the-art sustainable design practices. Special features include vegetated roofs, thermal solar heating, recycled timber, open space preservation and a flora-filter water system. Major program elements include 60 lodge rooms situated in cottage clusters, restaurant, spa, meeting facilities and recreation. The project is designed to achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification.
