Butte Residence

The 38-acre site for this family compound including a main house and art barn is located on an extraordinary site perched above Jackson, Wyoming. The site overlooks the confluence of the Snake and Gros Ventre Rivers and commands panoramic views of the mountains beyond.

The design was driven by the desire to capitalize on the potential of this spectacular site while weaving the architecture of the compound into the topography, maintaining a modest profile on the skyline. In addition, the owner, a collector of contemporary art and sculpture, desired architecture unconstrained by conventional notions of “rustic” or “western.”

Butte Residence

The buildings needed to develop a character and materiality that respects western tradition but clearly speaks to a desire for clean, contemporary, light-filled spaces.

Butte Residence

By breaking up the program into a series of volumes that range across the site, individual spaces open to varied views and access points; from intimate, secluded experiences within the trees, to dramatic sweeping vistas of the Teton Mountain Range and north to Yellowstone.

Butte Residence

Gently curving roof forms separately capture public and private functions within the residential program. Springing from and returning to the topography of the site, the roof profile mimics the soft shape of the butte and provides a series of broad protective canopies, which become a symbol for shelter in the harsh western landscape.
