Situated on a gorgeous site in Jackson, Wyoming, this stunning architectural masterpiece virtually drinks in the mountain views from every angle. With four guest suites, “islands of activity,” and a color palette inspired by a trip to the Dolomites mountain range in Italy, the home serves as a welcoming gathering spot for the owners’ children and their growing family—and does so with a blend of midcentury modern and new modernist Italian style.
Take a tour below.
Each room of the house has double window treatments. Even upon arriving at the front entrance, visitors can enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape straight through the home.
A grand contemporary fireplace meets the tall ceiling of the great room, creating the illusion of distinct, separate spaces within the open and airy layout. The furnishings were inspired by the home’s minimalist architecture and both incorporated and diverged from the straight, bold lines and elemental materials (steel, reclaimed wood, and concrete). The color palette—exemplified by the orange Egg Chairs by Fritz Hansen against a gray and slate backdrop—was influenced by the owners’ recent trip to the Dolomites, an Italian mountain range, with rusts and warm neutrals paired with grays.
One side of the fireplace sits the main kitchen-living-dining area. A loft outfitted with rollaway trundles overlooks the space, the perfect “hideaway” for children, enclosed with framed glass windows that open when the owners want to the connect the two spaces. When the loft is not in use, they can also shut the windows and the trap door and close the custom trapezoid-shaped blackout curtains, made locally at Stitch Upholstery.
An Allison Berger light fixture—dubbed a “moon pendant”—hangs above the PK54 dining table and DCW dining chairs, appearing “full” when viewed straight on and then “waning” to a thinner profile as you view it from different vantage points. Allison Berger glass pendants hang above the kitchen island.
Furniture is grouped into “islands of activity,” like this reading nook on the other side of the great room, creating the effect of multiple functional spaces that overlap—in a smaller footprint than a traditional layout would have allowed.
The walls were kept white to retain a gallery aesthetic and highlight the owners’ collection of color paintings and glass sculptures.
Each of the home’s four suites has an en suite bathroom, a queen murphy bed, and a built-in window seat with views of the Grand Teton. Each suite also has its own color way of the same fabric so that each space is identifiable within a consistent design.
The owners can even enjoy views of the Grand Teton while in the tub—creating the effect of bathing in nature.
Blackout and light-filtering roller shades or open-weave linen curtains adorn each bedroom. The curtains add warmth and dampen sound at night, avoiding the “fishbowl effect” of being in a glass home.
The floor-to-ceiling windows create an unparalleled indoor-outdoor connection.
