Inspiration for the Jackson Hole Indian Springs house was sourced from 18th-century stone barns, deftly combining rustic romance with contemporary elements.
The stacked stone guest cottage appears separate from the main house but is actually connected via an underground hallway, saving guests from tromping through deep winter snow.
The reclaimed timber entrance, door design and character-rich salvage-wood ceiling in the tranquil guest bedroom continue the house’s historical material palette, while plaster walls and oversize windows bring modern comfort, keeping the space light, bright and focused on remarkable mountain views.
When designing the Gallatin Valley house near Bozeman JLF Architects used the picturesque valley’s iconic barn form to house the garage, tucking an apartment into the upper “hayloft” space.
To enhance the regional appeal of the structure, antique faded red boards were thoughtfully placed, giving the appearance of a building that has aged naturally over the past century. Inside the apartment, a contemporary kitchen and a bedroom featuring reclaimed wood walls and ceiling beams offer guests a comfortable private setting.
