Views of the valley bounded by the Grand Tetons inspired us to create something peaceful and romantic: a timeless interior overlooking a painterly landscape of the American West. The architecture frames the natural grandeur as technicolor panoramas.
The house has a low roof line and rough materials that speak to the local vernacular. We embrace these rugged qualities and refine them as they migrate from exterior to interior.
This modest house only has a few rooms. The main living space is subdivided by millwork made by local craftsman. These pieces, conceived as furniture, are deployed to define distinct areas: entry vestibule, living-dining, and den. They stop short of the ceiling and rest on sculptural legs maintaining the sense of openness and light observed from the windows.
The art critically captures the natural beauty and the cultural interest of the landscape, the people, and our imagination.
