This private residence adjacent to the Big Wood river outside Sun Valley, Idaho incorporates rational agricultural and modern building forms for its design. A two-story gable barn form for the living areas is engaged with a flat roof structure for the entry, garage, and terrace areas. The design intent is for a modern barn on the exterior and a modern mountain cabin on the interior.

The home is sited for harmony with the wild riparian forest along the river. The dark grey and black colorations of the home’s exterior compliment the Aspen forest. Native plantings blend with the river environment, supporting wildlife and a healthy forest…the home defers to nature.
