Modern-rustic ranch house boasts glorious views of the Grand Tetons

CLB Architects is responsible for this modern rustic ranch house whose design was inspired by the beauty of the natural environment of Jackson, Wyoming. Nestled between the Snake River and valley proper, this fascinating home boasts panoramic views of the Tetons to the west and north and Gros Ventre mountains to the east.

This ramblinG ranch house speaks directly to the pond it borders, as well as the big timber and historic corrals that dot its sprawling 35-acres. A dramatic approach provides glimpses of this dwelling through dense trees before bringing guests over a bridge and onto the property. A connection between the home and the surrounding environment is provided by the man-made body of water that flows next to the home.

The structure itself was crafted around an unconventional residential program. Instead of breaking this dwelling into a series of smaller components housed in distinct pavilions, everything is linked under a single roof that cradles an interior courtyard. The shape is reminiscent of a horseshoe, entirely consistent in its roll from south to west.

Inspired by a series of existing corrals along the northern edge, the house represents not only the history of the property, but the region as a whole. Here, the simple shed form has been mimicked and abstracted, providing deeply carved overhangs that create shelter and a signal for entry.

What We Love: With great attention to setting and history, the architects have produced a contextually inspired architectural masterpiece that eschews coastal trends in favor of the modern American west. We are especially loving this dwellings amazing connection to nature and the unique ceiling design in the living room, casting varying patterns of light throughout the daylight hours. This home celebrates the beautiful property that is nestled on, while offering a feeling of tranquility for its inhabitants.

The private zones of this home consist of offices, a gym, and the home’s only bedroom. The living room showcases what is known as the ‘pull tab’— a hole punctuated into the ceiling to create patterns of light that trace the room during the course of the day. This design decision doubles as a brilliant formal move, where views from the south elevation create undulating ridges and valleys in the structure’s profile.

Locally quarried limestone transitions from the exterior to an indoor fireplace, while the remaining materials palette (white oak, cedar siding, and glass) presents an elegant and restrained composition.
