This project was specially designed by Dynia Architects to host a Brazilian restaurateur’s large family during their summer and winter retreats. Located at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the slope measures 8,500 square feet and impresses through its living arrangements.
The rigorous community design guidelines influenced the low-key exterior. In the exterior, the Oakley stone is juxtaposed with horizontal planks of naturally patinated Montana wind fencing.
The interior used materials are restrained to a white oak, grey stone, and white drywall. A great amount of natural light enters the house through large windows and an extensive interior glazing package. The large glass windows also visually connect the two levels of the home.
The main living room captures the beautiful surroundings, the mountain view to the south and southwest.
The custom Bulthaup kitchen is a blend of oak and stainless steel cabinetry, fixtures, and countertops. Here, the windows are placed under the custom designed open upper cabinet in lieu of a backsplash and a large picture window facing the ski slope is framed with oak panels.
The dining room is separated from the living area with Oakley stone that wraps the dual sided fireplace.
The two seating zones in the living area were fulfilled with furnishings in walnut and shades of grey.
Oak plank paneled feature walls, a modern play on the log cabin, punctuate the smooth white drywall. The home integrates six bedrooms and several custom designed bunk spaces on the lower level. This is a perfect environment to accommodate a growing extended family.
The home was designed and built on a strict 18-month schedule, just in time for the family to enjoy the ski season.
