Olson Kundig completed the 8,050-square-foot (748-square-metre) residence and accompanying small guest house to make the most of the availability of activities in Jackson Hole, a popular tourist destination for sports such as skiing and hiking.

Other projects near Jackson Hole, Wyoming designed for the natural landscape and skiing include the Caldera House, a ski resort wrapped in and stone by CLB Architects, formerly Carney Logan Burke, with public spaces and suites designed by Commune and a house clad with weathering steel.

The studio custom-built several furnishings for the house including wood tables used in the living and media room and bed frames.

"The house is a platform for the extreme experiences possible in a mountain climate – it acts as a preamble to the natural landscape just outside," said Olson Kundig design principal Tom Kundig.

US architecture firm Olson Kundig has installed large wooden shutters across the front of a house in Jackson Hole, Wyoming designed to take advantage of its mountainous landscape.
