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.
