For more than twenty years, Carney Logan Burke Architects collaborated with a Phoenix-bred family to compose this 180-acre Jackson hole property in Wyoming. The entire undertaking involved five separate projects within the area’s natural riverine environment.
With consideration and respect toward the surrounding wildlife, this contemporary home design finds inspiration from the landscape while fusing traditional with modern elements.
This Queen’s Lane Pavilion was brought to completion in 2018. The building process began with the first building, a parkitecture-influenced log, stone and timber dwelling. Consequently, an office and a wine wilo were added to the premises, after which a bridge was built. Last but not least, the long project was rounded off with the construction of this modernist flat-roofer glass pavilion.
Surrounded by fresh mountain air, the pavilion serves a family retreat to its owners. Thanks to window walls on both the north and the south sides of the building, the open plan living and dining areas are filled with natural light throughout the day. For the same reason, views over two spring creeks, trees and distant mountains are omnipresent from inside this glass-box style pavilion.
The L-shaped building accommodates a garage at one end, bedrooms in the longer section and the core of the home – the all inviting open plan living, dining and kitchen space.
The kitchen, featuring marble counters, wood cabinets and medium hardwood floors, pillars one end of the open plan space. A cosy fireplace cuts off the other end of the expansive space. The medium hardwood floors as well as ceilings made of white oak tie all the spaces together.
What’s really unique about this home is its decorative pierced steel curtain. The intricate patterns on the metalwork diffuse playful shadows inside the home; the pattern itself resembles organic shapes found in nature. From the outside, the metalwork gives the home an interesting and artistic character.
