Sun Valley Mountain Modern by Signum Architecture

Sun Valley Farmhouse-Signum Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

Sun Valley Farmhouse is a beautifully modern vacation home designed by Signum Architecture, set in the mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho. Set on flatlands with expansive 360 degree views, this seasonal home was designed for transparency and shelter. Two, freestanding barn shaped structures, clad in Alaskan cedar with a rusted metal roof, appear both striking and at home in the landscape. The offset buildings each capture different views.  The interiors were beautifully designed by Shawback Design.

Primary living and entertaining spaces fill the main building while the second houses a garage, shop and 2-bedroom apartment. A covered bridge connecting the two, encourages experiencing outside sounds, fragrances, and natural beauty.

Inside the main building, a great room with soaring ceilings dominates the space, aided by custom dark trusses that seem to disappear into the void. Floor to ceiling windows along the front wall of the room face large, custom doors along the back side. When open, the doors disappear completely into the walls turning the cozy living room into a magically lit indoor-outdoor space.

The fireplace and wood bin, crafted of concrete and steel, screen a neighboring house from view and focus attention toward the mountains. The resulting ambiance is one of privacy and remoteness in spite of proximity to the established community.
