Modern Glass Pavilion Framed by Two Creeks And A Colorful Scenery

Wyoming-based studio Carney Logan Burke Architects developed a relationship with a family owning a 180-acre property in Jackson which lasted over 20 years. During this period the architects worked on five projects, the first being a stone and timber lodge followed by an office/ shop, a wine silo with a rooftop viewing platform, a covered bridge and most recently a glass pavilion.

This last project has a modern aesthetic, featuring a flat roof and corten steel facade sections which give it a very nice patina that help the pavilion blend into its natural surroundings. The structure was built on a site once occupied by an old house predating the current owners.

The pavilion is the fifth project developed by the architects on this beautiful propertyView in gallery

The pavilion follows the exact footprint of the original building and has an L-shaped floor plan which contains the garage, 2 bedrooms and large open space living room, dining area and kitchen combo. White oak floors and ceilings create a warm and very welcoming vibe inside these spaces, with deep overhangs offering shade and protection from the elements and full-height windows which frame the serene views. Pierced steel curtains create a subtle contrast without blocking the views and go with the whole nature-oriented theme of this project.
