Shoshone Residence, located in Jackson Hole Wyoming, is site-responsive with
simple forms that blend with the landscapes of the West, with spectacular views
of the Tetons and the surrounding high mountains. The 5280 –square-foot home
boasts generous, yet intimate spaces that take full advantage of the natural
landscapes and the adjacent conservation lands.
The home’s overall plan organizes public and private spaces into two separate
structures connected by a bridge-like glass enclosed hallway. An L-shaped
single story building contains the garage, entry, powder room, mudroom, den and
open concept kitchen, living, dining. A two-story structure has a master suite,
three en-suite bedrooms, a sauna, and additional flex space that doubles as an
office, yoga studio or game room. The design approach of the house is aimed at
maximizing family interaction and encouraging outdoor living. The U–shaped
configuration frames a courtyard that acts as the central outdoor gathering
Large custom windows slide open from the main living space to a bridge of
weather-resistant ipe wood that leads to the outdoor eating area. A
complementary palette of woods include white oak floors, teak for the master
bath, cedar exterior, hemlock on the underside of eaves, ipe for bridges and
decks. Blocks of limestone from Montana frame the fireplace and steel-detailing
from renowned Company K include thin shelves above the fireplace and entrance,
stainless deck railing, and bonderized plates surround the kitchen’s built-in
pizza oven. Thoughtful outdoor living spaces surround the home and take into
consideration the time of year, the weather, and the sunshine for year-round
enjoyment. A central courtyard provides sheltered space for outdoor dining.
Hershberger Designs created a vibrant, colorful carpet of native plants
extending around the house. Groves of aspen trees form a leafy green canopy
over the dining area.
Off the West deck lies a cozy fire pit, large custom Diamond Spa, and a fully
lined and aerated reflection pond.
