Mountain Modern Watercress Residence Carney Logan Burke Architects

“Stark contemporary works well in California where it’s green all year round, but in Jackson Hole, where it is winter half the year, you have to be careful, “says interior designer Kate Binger of Designed Interiors, LLC. “No amount of radiant heating can warm up cold design; no one wants to feel as if they are freezing in their own home.”

Award-winning Jacksonbased architectural firm Carney Logan Burke worked with Binger, Two Ocean Builders and MountainScapes, Inc., on a contemporary five-acre property at the southern end of 3 Creek Ranch that, yes, has heated floors throughout, but is warm even without them.

The clients are “creative and passionate people with a deep appreciation of where they live," Hook says. Everything from the roofline to the material choices has a cheery lightness meant to reflect the personalities of the owners.

“This style has a close tie to our Western heritage—it uses today’s technologies and material to reinterpret it,” Burke says. And here, Western heritage is given full due before you even enter the home.

“The landscape architect’s goal was to get the landscaping and house to match what was there before construction began,” says Sean Macauley, owner of MountainSCapes, Inc. “And what was there before construction was sage, rabbitbrush and a bunch oh native grass. You can’t get more Western than that.” The exterior does not have a broad array of materials—primarily wood, glass and architectural concrete with some metal accents.

Windswept Weathered Wood was used for the exterior siding; it is crafted by utilizing standing dead or dying beetlekill tress from the Colorado Rocky Mountain regions. These same trees are the exact cause of all wildfires in this region.

Until now, there these trees have simply fallen victim to forest fire and horrendous detriment. Claiming these unwanted trees is an environmental wonder and a champion of pure sustainability.

The home was designed with two main living spaces: a combined kitchen, living and dining area on the ground level and an upstairs master suite.

Munger Mountain and the southernmost edge of the Tetons dominate. Upstairs, the western wall of windows frame Glory Bowl and the range as it runs north.
