The Creamery, a stunning family house by JLF Architects and Big-D Signature on the outskirts of Jackson, Wyoming, confirms that timeless architecture never goes out of style. The stone structure was salvaged from a farm in Montana and reconstructed in Jackson Hole with painstaking care to restore the authentic craftsmanship and rugged austerity of the original 1800s-era dairy barn while making it modern and livable.
JLF Architects began in a log farmhouse on the banks of the Yellowstone River nearly four decades ago. An authentic setting for authentic work. The buildings Paul Bertelli and Jonathan L. Foote built blended into the Montana landscape as if grown from the sites themselves, framed by salvaged century-old barn timbers and floorboards. Though the scope and scale of the firm has grown, the core values remain the same: honesty of materials, respect for regional context, deference to scale, commitment to comfort, and allegiance to simplicity. Reclaimed wood and stacked stone remain hallmarks of JLF designs, although now, contemporary intrusions of steel and glass add contrast. Still, a sophisticated sparsity pervades, a serenity felt, not forced.
