  • Exterior view of the living area.  Contemporary, modern timber frame mountain home shot at twilight.  Corrugated metal siding, shed roofs, and stone materials.  Chosen by the AIA for an Award of Citation in Architecture.

    This project is located between the Lost River Mountain Range and the Lemhi Range in the remote but scenic Pahsimeroi Valley in central Idaho. Largely an open range and agricultural area, this project is influenced by the rough and practical rural farm structures of the area. Designed as a small compound, the home is organized around an enclosed garden courtyard, walled to keep out the ever present wind and migrating deer and antelope. Arrayed around the courtyard are simple shed forms connected with a flat roof circulation element. As a feature counterpoint to the design, the home has a “lookout” inspired one room tower providing spectacular distant 360 degree views of the broad flat valley. ┬áThe home is entirely sheathed in corrugated galvanized metal and covered with a corrugated rusted metal roof.

  • View of the internal courtyard sheltered from wind and the elements by walls.  Contemporary, modern timber frame architecture situated in the mountains.  Corrugated metal siding, shed roofs, and stone materials.

  • In 2010, our clients for this project approached us to expand the compound.  We added a four car garage with shop, we converted the existing two car garage to a guest suite, and we added one new main entry to the walled courtyard.  Work was completed in 2012.
