Proposed Projects

Architect of Record: KRIKOR Architecture

Designer + Project Architect: Gregory Mason



Location: Teton Village Wyoming



While the world renowned Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Arial Tram passes overhead, snow can fall up to several feet deep around this property each year.  The goal of this project was to design a new detached Art Studio and Garage with a covered connector back to the main residence.  The building site is surrounded by heavy forest and there was a substantial grade drop between the building pad for the new structure and main house. 



The cost sensitive design solution incorporated low maintenance one-hour fire rated exterior walls and roof for protection from forest fires.  The semi-enclosed timber canopy connector is sheathed on one side with wood slats to block blowing and drifting snow from the west.  A gentle concrete tread and riser proportion was incorporated to help lift you up the grade change with little effort.  

Challenge each other to uncover solutions that exceed expectations. Invention can arise from a unique inner vision.


Building materials define the character of spaces.  Stone, wood, metal and glass can be used in an honest way that does not try to replicate or imitate.
