Perched high above the town of Jackson, Wyoming, USA, this stone house was constructed by McLean Quinlan for a family of talented designers. McLean Quinlan called it a perfect mix of European chalet and classic American cabin.
The house feels rooted to the location, with a simple palette of stone, timber, plaster and glass. This is a strikingly simple and honest building, spatially serene, with a design and energy that connect indoor and outdoor spaces. The building has a sense of solidity balanced with transparency, and contemporary with the vernacular. Every element carefully considered with close attention to detail and craft.
The orientation, design and natural materials – reclaimed and new – ensure the building links to the land. Boulders have been positioned to enable comfortable changes in level on the steep slope with indigenous planting of grasses and Aspen trees.
