This home, for a family of six, is located on the east-face of a mountain, just south of Grand Teton National Park. A switchback drive provides access to a remote site, perched high above a valley, with stunning views of Jackson Hole, the Snake River, and Bridger-Teton National Forest. The selected location for the project has dramatic topography, and the design responds to the 20-30% slopes, the alpine vegetation, and the abundant sunlight.
The program includes a cantilevered living area with views to the west, north, and east; a shared fireplace between the dining area and the living area; and a kitchen which opens to the dining room and an outside shaded terrace.
The project has a net-zero energy profile: It is off the grid and completely self-sufficient, with zero carbon emissions.
