Located on a flat, open, grass-covered site amid wraparound views of the Teton and Gros Ventre ranges, the deliberately unobtrusive Tennican residence facilitates a clear dialogue between enclosed and natural space. The design, which consists of a series of glazed passageways connecting rectilinear pavilions, aligns its axis with specific land features and view corridors. Low-slung gable roofs and a sunken sod-roofed garage respond to the site’s horizontality, consciously deemphasizing the building’s place in the landscape. Material choices aid in keeping the interface between natural and built environment as pure as possible: Large spans of glass create transparency that alternates with earthbound masses of wood, steel and stone. Simple features such as limestone floors traveling from interior living spaces to exterior patios, and low-pitched roofs that quietly cap the interior space, further blur the line between indoors and out.
