This Jackson, Wyoming home is built into the side of a mountain, creating vistas of the Grand Tetons beyond. The lighting seeks to highlight the natural construction materials, helping to blend the house into its dramatic environs.
The lighting solution has an effortless quality that creates a warm and harmonious environment. However, the ease of the design belies the compositional considerations and technical detailing required to produce the total effect. The lighting of the expansive wood ceiling is a unifying motif, linking both interior and exterior spaces. Customized fixtures, carefully detailed into the wood ceiling, are outfitted with specific lenses to illuminate an extensive and varied art collection.
The lighting, seamlessly integrated into the architecture, enhances the palette of natural materials and suffuses the house with a hearth-like glow.
