This Sinuous Home in Wyoming References Its Landscape

2022 Best of Year Winner for On the Boards – Single Family Residential

With a dramatically sinuous form that echoes the backdrop silhouette of the Teton Range, the 8,000- square-foot house in Big Sky country, due for completion in August 2024, is conceived as a tent, albeit an ultramodern one given its blackened-zinc cladding. Designed by David Jameson Architect, the structure, which comprises water-jet cut aluminum ribs joined into unitized wall panels with a vented cold cavity to help with snow control, will be prefabricated in Kansas City and shipped to the remote alpine site—a strategy that allows the shell to be erected and closed in during the summer building season. Energy efficiency will be achieved through spray-foam insulation, radiant HVAC systems, and LED lighting, while the construction typology and choice of durable materials set the sculptural edifice up for legacy usage.
