Modern-rustic homestead showcases views over the Teton Range

Contemporary Mountaintop Homestead-JLF Associates-01-1 Kindesign

This modern-rustic homestead was designed by architectural studio JLF + Associates for a young family of five, located in Jackson, Wyoming. The sloping property consists of 35 acres atop Gros Ventre West and surrounded by mature growth aspen trees. The design team wanted the home to appear as though it is growing out of the landscape. The residence consists of a series of structures that steps down the hillside.

At the heart of the structure is the entryway, with an inviting wood trussed porch. To the left of the entryway is a guesthouse, garage and equipment shed, all built into the hillside. A green roof of sage and wild grasses covers the guesthouse. To the right of the entryway is a stone structure that encompasses the kitchen and living room. Beyond that structure is the private bedroom wing, a small log cabin with a timeless aesthetic.

Interesting Fact: This contemporary homestead was awarded “Home of the Year 2016” by Mountain Living magazine— “The epitome of high country architecture”.

“A hybrid of urban and Western influences, the house pairs ageless materials—timber, stone and Corten steel—with luminous contemporary elements,” explains the architects. “Perched atop a Teton butte, the homestead feels synonymous with place, yet surprisingly refined.” Board-and-batten-style exterior siding is combined with industrial Cor-Ten rusted steel and steel beams.

The interior decor showcases mid-century furnishings that are more open and exposed with minimal cushions. The designers wished to counterbalance this lightness by pairing these pieces with some heavier furnishings. Material elements includes weathered Montana moss rock and rustic reclaimed wood. The exquisite wood flooring consists of rare American chestnut. Efficient steel and glass windows frames the breathtaking views that surrounds the home.

There is no formal dining area, as this home caters to the homeowner’s contemporary lifestyle. Instead, there are several more intimate dining areas, which includes a small banquette in the kitchen, an adjacent outdoor dining table and the table featured in the image above.
