This residence, located slope side at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, was designed to accommodate a very large and gregarious family during their summer and winter retreats. Living spaces are elevated above the forest canopy on the second story in order to maximize sunlight and views. Exterior materials are rustic and durable, yet are also minimalist with pronounced textural contrast. The simple interior material palette of drywall, white oak, and gray stone creates a sense of cohesiveness throughout the house, and glass is used to create a sense of connection between key public spaces.
A design feature of the residence is a substantial glass floor above the entryway, which provides a visual continuity between the floors. The residence was designed to accommodate a family of chefs and restaurateurs. Features to support this are an expansive kitchen and large areas for entertaining.
