Architecture Design of Five Shadows House

Description About The Project

Five Shadows House is a holiday home in Wyoming’s Teton mountain range which designed by CLB Architects. It named after the five distinct volumes which make up the 12,800 square foot (1,100 square metres) estate. This house, also, reminiscent of a homesteader’s settlement, composed of five connected, symmetrical, agrarian inspired forms.

In addition to this, slightly elevated above neighbors, the compound imparts a feeling of privacy, screens nearby buildings through structural orientation and strategic window placement. Also, takes in broad views across the valley to the Gros Ventre Range.

The three central forms are linked by glassy connectors. They also lie parallel to and offset from, each other. The remaining two forms, in turn, help define a series of distinct and different outdoor experiences including the auto court at the entry. A West facing courtyard that embraces an aspen grove, and a South facing pool terrace flanked by a detached pool house. On the other hand, the largest form hosts the public spaces, while the peripheral volumes capitalize on privacy for bedrooms and a den.

Indeed, the layout of the multiple buildings lends elegance to the flow. Whilst, the relationship between spaces fosters a sense of intimacy. Hence, the formal proportions, material consistency, and painstaking craftsmanship in Five Shadows were all deliberately considered to enhance privacy, serenity, and a profound connection to the outdoors.

Five Shadows comprised of multiple volumes. The different volumes of the home were organized around a large terraced area.
Also, the exteriors are clad simply in stone, with subtle steel detailing.

Besides, rooms of this Five Shadows House are connected by wood-clad and glazed corridors.
The interiors of this Five Shadows House have a neutral palette and use woods and stone.
Indeed, similarly minimal palette of rift-sawn white oak and white plaster defines the gracious interior spaces.

Text by the Architects: Five Shadows, located on a prime site at the base of the Teton Mountain Range, belies the density of the surrounding area. Besides, sited at the western boundary of development, the project lives on the fringes of a meadow near an aspen and conifer forest that cascades down from the summit of Rendezvous Peak. Slightly elevated above neighbors, the compound imparts a feeling of privacy, screens nearby buildings through structural orientation and strategic window placement, and takes in broad views across the valley to the Gros Ventre Range.
