Incredible Wyoming mountain dwelling wraps minimalism in warmth

modern-home-exterior

Carney Logan Burke Architects has designed this stunning home with warm minimalism, nestled on a quiet 18-acre meadow showcasing panoramic views of ranchlands, foothills and Glory Peak just outside Jackson, Wyoming. The homeowner’s were interested in working with the architects on creating a design that incorporates regionally appropriate modernism.

The residence encompasses 3,500 square feet of living space, combining simplicity with interest. The design references its agrarian surroundings and is based on the concept of a dogtrot barn, two separate but connected forms. The long (160’ x 37’) rectangular dwelling is connected to a separate garage structure by a three-foot thick roof.

The roof of the main structure is asymmetrically gabled. This modern take on the barn lends energy and opens up the interiors toward the primary views. Although the house is one gabled form, protected outdoor spaces are carved out of the main volume and extended on either end, where perforated siding adds texture and provides covered porches with privacy and protection from the elements.

Throughout, materiality is minimal. The exterior is clad in oxidized steel, the interiors expressed in steel, glass, and concrete. The only wood used is larch; warm, light and rustic in character, in places it wraps up the walls to the ceiling and continues outside.

Drama is a continuous factor in this home — in the sense of space created by the width and span of the connector roof; in the entry, with its oversized pivoting door flanked by glass; in the way the interiors open up to the views; and in bold and whimsical interior details — creating the perfect venue for a dynamic couple’s retirement years.

On the interior, the focus was on taking minimalism and creating a warm, inviting and livable feel. Inspired by the owner’s love of nature, artifacts, color, and collections, furnishings include modernist lighting — such as the tumbleweed chandelier in the living room. You will also find whimsical objects throughout, including taxidermy specimens from the owners’ collection, and injections of color in a guest room and the powder room, where an energizing abstract design derived from brain scans on an orange background injects interest and vitality into the small space.
