About This Project
Located in Downtown Jackson, WY this new 5000 sqft family home is designed as three intersecting volumes, that create an array of inside and outside spaces. A 20’ Lift & Slide unit opens up the kitchen / dining area to the courtyard, while a 12’ high glass door assembly opens up the master bedroom’s views to Snowking Mountain. An axis of light creates transparency through the entire depth of the house, illuminating both kitchen and staircase.
Designed as a Passive House, the R-8 windows and doors combined with attention to airtight construction and 18” of wall insulation make for a house that needs minimal heat even in Jackson winters. Besides the low energy consumption, vastly increased comfort results from the highly insulated construction – no drafts or cold spots, even next to the glass walls.
