Jackson, Wyoming - 2,560 sq. ft
A simpler design was chosen for this house over 2,000 square feet. The challenge was its location, at the corner of two streets, and the intention was to preserve as much intimacy as possible. This was mainly accomplished by creating a fence-protected patio on the north side: the owners can enjoy time outside in privacy while keeping an open view to the west mountain range. Siding and stone veneer on the facades give much texture to the exterior.
The design includes spacious living room with large windows, flooding the space with light, much needed in the long valley winter. The floor plan is opened, with living, dining room and kitchen areas in succession. The interior style is fairly contemporary throughout the home, yet the addition of beams to the tall ceiling was the perfect way to add a slight rustic touch. They are the same contrasting note as the dark-stained window trims.
