Breathtaking mountain contemporary home in Idaho nestles in the woods

This mountain contemporary home was designed by Olson Kundig Architects, nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in Ketchum, Idaho between Bald Mountain and Dollar Mountain. Encompassing 6,500-square-feet of living space, this dwelling was designed around the owner’s vast collection of contemporary art alongside commanding mountain views.

Windows carefully frame views of exterior artworks against the forested landscape beyond. This steel-and-wood-clad home consists of two main forms, which bifurcate one another. The main form consists of the entry foyer and the open plan kitchen, dining, and living areas, with two bedrooms below and two offices above.

“In Ketchum, winters are cold and snowy while summers are hot and dry. Like any mountain adventure where you might encounter different climate conditions, the driver for this design was to create a house that could ‘dress’ for the changing weather, opening and closing depending on the climate situation.” — TOM KUNDIG, FAIA, RIBA

Upon entering this mountain contemporary dwelling, an expansive art wall in the double-volume foyer showcases a favorite abstract painting by Lawrence Fodor titled Rain Forest, establishing the home’s dual emphasis on art and nature.

An interior palette of exposed steel, concrete, and wood supports the prominence of the client’s curated art collection. The home’s secondary form completes the “T”-shaped plan, its steel-and-glass entry vestibule and glass-box master suite acting as the yin to the main house’s yang.
