Mountain refuge soaks in inspired views of the Jackson Hole landscape

Olson Kundig Architects is responsible for the design of this amazing mountain refuge that is located in the awe-inspiring Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The architects were tasked with creating a home that embraces the dramatically varied climate of the region, which experiences all four seasons and extreme temperature changes.

The homeowners sought a strong connection to the mountain landscape and the adventurous spirit of Jackson but also the ability to shutter the home when they’re away or during challenging weather conditions like extreme snowstorms. The outcome is an extraordinary home with adjustable transparency, allowing it to open and close in response to Jackson Hole Mountain’s changing disposition.

What We Love: This Jackson Hole mountain refuge features distinctive architectural details throughout its design. Melding into the mountainside, breathtaking views surround this incredible home, making it an idyllic retreat for vacation getaways. We are loving the unique pulley system to close up the home during extreme weather conditions. A warm and inviting material palette and beautiful living spaces combine to produce an overall attractive design aesthetic.

Tell Us: What do you think of the architectural details of this home? Is there anything you would do differently in the design? Let us know in the Comments!

Note: Have a look at a couple of our favorite home tours that we have featured here on One Kindesign from the portfolio of the architects of this home, Olson Kundig Architects: Minimalist live/work space on the Catalonian coast of Spain and Waterfront retreat built for entertaining on the San Juan Islands.

Large window walls on the main level allow for expansive mountain and valley views; a ski-in/ski-out element connects the home directly to several Jackson Hole ski mountains.

The primary living spaces are on the main level, with a combined living, dining, and kitchen area opening to an interior courtyard adjacent to the ski-in/ski-out area and ski storage room.

When a more introverted and protective attitude is needed, an exterior wood shutter system allows the owners to close up the home via a hand-cranked pulley system.

A single guest room is on the main level, with the master suite and three additional bedrooms upstairs. The lower level contains a media room, wine storage, and bike shop. The home features several custom furniture elements including tables and bed frames in the living room, media room, and bedrooms.

Warm wood interiors of rift-cut oak, fir, and walnut create nuanced interior moments – the yin to the yang of the dramatic landscape outside.

A detached guest hut to the west, which contains a bathroom, kitchenette, and combined living/bedroom space, allows couples to stay at the property without needing to open up the main home.

I’m trying to figure out how those wooden window covers (a severe lever arm with no apparent metal reinforcement) can take a massive snow load!
