Extraordinary home immersed in the mountains
The Peaks View residence, designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects, is located near Wilson, Wyoming, in a grassy meadow, adjacent to the Teton mountain range. The design solution for the project had to satisfy two conflicting goals: the finished project must fit seamlessly into a neighborhood with distinctly conservative design guidelines while satisfying the owners desire to create a unique home with roots in the modern idiom. Within these constraints, the architect created an assemblage of building volumes to break down the scale of this 6,500 square foot home. This trio of buildings wrap around a south-facing courtyard, a warm refuge for outdoor living during the short summer season in Wyoming.
