Blaze Makoid Architecture has recently completed a modern house in Teton Village, Wyoming, for an active family of five who love the outdoors.
The house has a cedar shingle, gabled roof with eaves that extend to protect the reclaimed barn wood siding from the elements. A ribbon of rustic local fieldstone runs the perimeter of the project’s base and also clads the chimneys and feature walls. A long, covered walk leads to a single story, glass entry hall that frames views with floor-to-ceiling windows.
In the living room, there’s high ceilings and a large living room that’s focused on the fireplace. Sliding glass doors open up to the patio, where an outdoor fireplace can be enjoyed, as well as a hot tub. Back inside, and there’s a large open dining room with a table big enough to seat twelve. Clerestory windows add more natural light into the living room. The main floor of the house also has a small home office and library area at the bottom of the stairs.
The wood stairs lead to the upper floor of the home, while the windows have wood accents providing an interesting shadow on the interior walls. Upstairs, there’s a second living room that features custom-designed window benches and a fireplace. In the master bedroom, the bed has been built into a small alcove with hidden lighting, while floor-to-ceiling windows frame the views. In the master bathroom, hidden lighting creates a soft glow, while the freestanding bathtub has been raised up on a platform and positioned beneath the window. The home also has a large bedroom that’s been designed with custom bunk beds with personal shelves, allowing the room to sleep at least six people, if not more.
