Ken-Caryl Ranch is a well-known, master planned development nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Littleton, Colorado. Having received wide praise for their efforts to create a beautiful residential community that embraces the natural local landscape, the development enjoyed great popularity in the 80s and 90s that continues today.

ArtHouse was inspired by the picturesque landscape and the area’s history as an agricultural settlement and used this to inform the design of prominent gateways. Incorporating authentic, rough-hewn wooden beams, stacked stone and visual cues from the agriculture industry, ArtHouse connected this community both to its Colorado roots and its history of westward expansion. The monument and wayfinding signage was designed to be appropriate at varying scales, visible to high-speed vehicular traffic, lower-speed neighborhood areas and even pedestrians. Located at some of the development’s most scenic entrances, these signs create a welcoming impression and further define the Ken-Caryl Ranch brand.
