Indian Paintbrush Residence in Jackson, Wyoming by Carney Logan Burke Architects

Situated in an aspen grove near Jackson, Wyoming, this residence was designed to make the most of both the small buildable area of the site and the modest budget allotted for construction. For ten years prior to building, the clients had lived on the site in a dark 1970s log cabin. The project parameters included a closer connection between the new form and its beautiful site, a less overtly traditional western vernacular expression than that of the old residence, as well as an adherence to a very tight budget of $160 / square foot – a major challenge in the inflated economy of a resort community.

The site’s limited buildable area and the clients’ desire for minimal impact on the landscape required a small footprint for the building. This constraint, together with specifications of the owners’ program, pushed the living areas of the house onto an upper floor and into the canopy of the trees, creating an upside-down version of a traditional house diagram.

The architectural solution takes the form of a simple two-story box set into the hillside. The lower level holds back the hill and contains entry, guest bedroom, gear storage, and utility areas. The upper level accommodates the kitchen, an open living area, and the master bedroom. Echoing the building’s profile, a cube form projects from the south wall of the living area, creating an intimate space within a space for the woodstove and library.

The exterior materials were chosen to weather gracefully and blend with the colors of the landscape. Oxidized steel siding finished with a linseed oil sealer covers the box frame. The addition of cedar-clad projections and a steel visor enrich the simple form by adding depth, shadow, and texture to the elevation.
