Linn Canyon Residence
On the east side of Teton Valley, Idaho, tucked into the foothills, this home takes advantage of sweeping views of the valley and opposing mountain ranges. The elevated wraparound decks tie back into the hillside allowing the residents to step onto the hillside and into their private trail system. Large overhangs protect the outdoor areas and offer relief to the living areas from the summer sun. The low building form does not dominate the landscape, but compliments its stunning and rugged natural surroundings. Weathered barn wood, steel, glass, and board-formed concrete provide a mix of both traditional and modern architecture. The result is an experience of seamless indoor and outdoor living — a harmonious and tranquil balance of geometric lines and the untamed mountain surroundings.
