Contemporary stone cottage adds to mountain modern aesthetic

Jackson Hole, Wyoming by JLF Architects has been highlighted by Big Sky Journal as one of the homes that ‘stand up to the mountains while standing out architecturally’. Taking a fresh, contemporary approach to the house’s original structure and rustic materials, JLF collaborated the design-build process with Big-D Signature.

The London couple that owns the Jackson house wanted to build a family home on six acres in a quiet Jackson Hole development with views of Teton mountain. 

JLF Architects/Big-D Signature combined the rustic elements with contemporary glass and steel, capturing the dramatic views of Teton. Reclaimed wood, such as the wide planks from a barn floor, and 240 tons of fieldstone were used blend the house into the landscape.

Taking the contemporary aspect a step further, the architects embraced the owners' suggestion of a glass staircase and the three-storey stairway became one of the home's central design features. The skylights flood the stairway with natural light.

Recently, the firm was asked to create a 2,000 square foot guest house that connects to the main house by an underground tunnel, giving the appearance of being a separate structure.
