650 acres of secluded Canadian landscape are becoming a new centre of innovative contemporary residential design. Carraig Ridge is situated across south and west-facing slopes, ridges, lakes and woodlands, where landscape designers and architects have worked to ensure the houses will have minimal impact on their surroundings. Only 44 unique homes will be built on lots between one and five acres, preserving over 500 acres of this beautiful wilderness.
Carraig Ridge is in the foothills adjacent to Alberta’s Ghost Lake and the Ghost River. On the horizon to the south and west, the land rises up to form the spectacular peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It is conveniently located between the outdoor amenities of Canmore, Kananaskis Country, Banff National Park and the growing city of Calgary. Carraig Ridge itself offers dozens of kilometres of walking and biking trails, lakes and ponds, woodlands and grasslands in a rolling landscape shared with wildlife large and small.
Carraig Ridge combines conservation with innovation. The first collection of modern retreats is being overseen by the Norwegian-based studio Saunders Architecture, founded by the world-renowned Todd Saunders. Design, craft, materials, and technology will ensure the existing landscape is given prominence, providing a permanent retreat for future generations.
