Tech House is a contemporary weekend retreat and the result of collaboration between Hoyt Architects and CTA Architects Engineers.
Project description: Perched high on a double sloping site in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this residence affords spectacular views of the Teton Range and incorporates many unique and whimsical features wrapped in a warm yet contemporary package.
The building site, almost an acre of ridge-top land in the Spring Creek Ranch subdivision, slopes downward to both the west and the south. For this reason the architects opted to stack the home’s three levels, orienting the primary rooms toward views that sweep directly across the valley to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and span the entire Teton Range.
Heated concrete ramps connect multiple layers hugging the terrain. An indoor slide — complete with infinite hue-changing LEDs — connects the main level with the recreation room. Solar panels, green roofs, flat screen panels inlaid into the entry floor, triple-stacked bunk beds, mechanized fireplace doors that slide up out of sight, a Pickard steam injection pizza oven, and adjustable chain mail shade curtains on a trolley system are a few of the custom features wrapped in an exterior of zinc panels, corral board, steel, and moss rock.
