Perched high above the town of Jackson with wide views of the snowcapped peaks and vast valley of the Grand Teton National Park.

Our clients, themselves exceptionally talented designers, embarked on this project after falling in love with the place and set out on a journey to create a beautiful home in this extraordinary landscape.

The design unites elements of both European chalet and classic American cabin. The house feels rooted to the location, with a simple palette of stone, timber, plaster and glass. This is a strikingly simple and honest building, spatially serene, with a design and energy that connect indoor and outdoor spaces. The building has a sense of solidity balanced with transparency, and contemporary with the vernacular. Every element carefully considered with close attention to detail and craft.

The orientation, design and natural materials – reclaimed and new – ensure the building links to the land. Boulders have been positioned to enable comfortable changes in level on the steep slope with indigenous planting of grasses and Aspen trees.

The silvered cedar shingle roof blends with the majestic landscape beyond. As the years pass the external stonework will cover with lichen, the sagebrush will gradually creep up to the boundaries of the house as the building marrys with the landscape.
