The owners for this 5,600-square-foot residence desired a “ fishing cabin ” in the West. They purchased property with an existing house on a beautiful 10-acre site in Jackson, Wyoming. The land offered privacy, views to the Teton Mountain Range, close proximity to a fishing creek and access to the wildlife habitat that the creek supports.

The owners considered tearing down the building but the existing structure resided within a stream setback. A new project would have required pulling the house away from the water’s edge which conflicted with the owners’ overall goals.

The existing house was “Western Cliché” with shellacked logs, shiny river rock and a hodgepodge of various buildings placed without regard to the site. We began the design effort by reorganizing the forms to create a more unified composition of buildings. Individual cabin forms are knitted together by a long, low, Western-inspired porch. Large window openings were cut into the buildings to connect interior spaces with the outdoors. While the owners still wanted to maintain the log buildings, they also wanted the house to be a contemporary interpretation of a western cabin. In order to achieve this, the exterior has a black palette, with black stained logs, black steel details and black painted wood. In contrast to the exterior, the interiors are expressed primarily in a white palette with white washed logs and white plaster throughout. Black steel elements and Belgium slate flooring add character and bring exterior details inside.

Sunnybrook Residence by Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro Architects

The Sunnybrook residence was designed for owners who requested a clean, uncluttered plan with warmth and texture as rich as their Texas history. Because of the deep site setback, the structure appears to be suspended in and above the gently sloping lawn, which glides under and through the house.

Modern Wooden House with Clean Lines and a Transparent Design

In close cooperation with the couple, architect Mette Lange designed this dream home. The result is a functional and modern wooden house with clean lines and a transparent design that offers a clear view of the surrounding reed forest, beach meadow and coast.
