Jackson Hole, WY
We were asked to design a modern pavilion house for an avid young skier. The secluded site is located near the base of Grand Teton Mountains and looks out over Rock Springs Canyon. The pavilion is structured by heavy hewn timber beams that form a coffered interior ceiling canopy. The timber ceiling is supported by four large concrete pillars that help define the interior spaces, and a large wood burning fireplace anchors the living area.
A delicate, Swiss engineered, window and door system is juxtaposed against the masculine proportioned structure. The sophisticated specifications of the triple pane glass allow for a comfortable interior even in the coldest winter storm.
This is our take on a modern rustic cottage.
