Everything Is Connected at the Ranch
The Eames Ranch is a place of perpetual iteration and experimentation—where the Eameses’ lessons are put into practice with every passing season, and a lifetime of learning is used to design a better world for tomorrow.
A Living Legacy Rooted in Renewal
Lucia Eames, Charles’ daughter, purchased the original Eames Ranch property in 1992—and the William Turnbull-designed structures she built here served as a home base for the Eames family and the collection they inherited from Ray and Charles. Through the years, Lucia’s daughter, Llisa Demetrios, has lived here with her own family and continues Lucia’s dream for the land.
Agriculture as an Act of Design
Ray and Charles believed that “eventually everything connects.” This holistic notion drives our way of working at the Ranch, where we are learning from traditional practices to focus on regenerative agriculture and habitat restoration, while harnessing new technologies to transition the property to net zero carbon and water use.
A Space to Build a Better Tomorrow—Together
Outfitted with a metal shop and wood shop, the Eames Ranch models a hands-on approach to problem-solving, where design becomes a tool and the tools for designing are always within reach.
