This Mountain Retreat in Jackson, Wyoming Nods to the American West
2022 Best of Year Winner for Medium Country House
Working with local firm Ankeny Architecture and Design, New York–based Messana O’Rorke brought its clean, modernist aesthetic to this 5,000-square-foot mountain retreat that effortlessly blends the past and present of the American West. Comprising four volumes of stained cedar and stone that are connected by glass-enclosed bridges, the home appears to be a series of independent pavilions arrayed in a line. The end walls of the central structure—a single space containing the kitchen, sitting, and dining areas—feature massive pocket doors that open onto paved terraces for free-flowing indoor-outdoor living. The interiors showcase Messana O’Rorke’s signature attention to refined details, which here include crisp, wide-plank French-oak flooring stained warm gray and cove lighting that turns a passageway’s beamed ceiling into a floating, poetic vision.
