Jackson Residence

If it’s open country and breathtaking backdrops you’re looking for in America, chances are Wyoming is where you’ll find some of the best examples of it and, with this in mind, having a residential property right in the middle of this mesmerising state is something that we can all aspire to – especially when said residence is as glorious looking and well designed as the Jackson Residence from Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects.

The Jackson Residence is located in, you guessed it, the town of Jackson in Wyoming and overlooks a spectacular river valley in one of the most naturally beautiful areas in the American West. This stunning piece of architectural design from Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects has a stand out feature in the shape of the glazed box containing a study which cantilevers out from the modern property.

Contemporary Considerations

When you’ve got a backdrop as inspiring as the breathtaking countryside that surrounds the Jackson Residence in Wyoming, it’s safe to say the design of a property has to be done right so not as to detract from it and that’s something that has certainly been considered here. The Jackson Residence is an undeniably modern structure but one that has been carefully considered to make sure it dovetails perfectly with its surroundings and the minimalistic interiors go a long way to help achieving this objective as well.

The Jackson Residence from Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects is located on the edge of a butte and delivers unparalleled, sweeping views of the Snake River Valley and the Teton Mountain Range in the distance. Needless to say, the clients who commissioned the Jackson Residence wanted a home that would truly make the most of its incredible setting. Measuring some 9,860-square-foot, this L-shaped residence is pretty vast but the understated approach to the interior design really adds to the welcoming feel it offers and steers you towards its amazing views at every turn.

With facades that are crafted from concrete, wood and vast swathes of glass, alongside deep eaves helping shade glazed walls, the Jackson Residence catches the eye but not so much so that you’re not still completely in awe of the exquisite surroundings in which it is set. The modern home stands out from the surrounding properties, which are typically more rustic in nature but it has many contemporary features that really make for a welcoming space to relax and unwind.

Natural Setting

The Jackson Residence embraces its rural setting and it is accessed via a meandering road which winds its way through a sagebrush meadow and an aspen tree grove. Within, there is a floating stair which leads down to the lower levels of the Jackson Residence, where the architects placed a family room, two bedrooms and an office. Every room in the home is a vision of minimalism and boasts an impressive view.

Surrounding the residence are a number of terraces which serve as spaces for entertaining guests and making the most of the extraordinary backdrops that envelope the property. Planted roofs, along with natural materials used throughout the home, are designed in order to complement the colours and textures of the sensational landscape and this is something that really brings the property to life. An exquisite piece of architecture and interior design.
