Located on a sagebrush plain north of Jackson, Wyoming, Logan Pavilion is a timeless and minimalist home designed to integrate with the landscape and meet the evolving needs of an architect’s family.
Originally constructed by Eric Logan, Design Principal at CLB Architects, on a tight budget and four-month construction schedule the home draws from the vernacular of the hay shed. The gabled roof is held up on tall columns, a symbol of shelter on the open plains and exterior materials such as rusted sheet steel were selected for their ability to weather gracefully and blend in with the landscape. Oiled Masonite wall panelling and oiled concrete floors were selected as economical interior finishing solutions that emphasize a rustic yet contemporary aesthetic.
The house is built to maximize natural light, cross ventilation and take in views of the Teton Mountains. Deep overhangs provide shelter from sun and snow, while over time, the family have added plants and trees to provide shade and additional habitat.
Since the original construction of the home in 1993, the family has added a guest house as well as a garage. The garage form is built from oxidized steel that rusts and weathers in the surrounding climate.
In 2020, the house was completed remodelled again. This most recent iteration includes a kitchen renovation, roof upgrade from a shingle roof to metal roof, new decking, stained siding, and a new metal roof.
