Wildfire resistant materials cover the majority of the exterior while still keeping a rustic design.
How to handle the forces applied by the natural elements must be designed into the process from the beginning.
A rich palette of sustainable materials can add warmth to the living environment.
Multi-level space can add drama to the interior and visually tie the structure together.
Stair was designed to allow natural light and airflow to move through the space.
The Stair Tower acts as a shaft for natural light and ventilation. Sustainable engineered wood products form the stair construction and curved roof beam supports.

Proposed Projects

Architect of Record: Strout

Designer + Project Architect: Gregory Mason


Location: Teton Village, Wyoming

                 Jackson Hole Mountain Resort


Efficient building on a rugged site can require experimentation with alternative building systems. Granite above and below grade made this mountain site rugged and challenging to navigate.  This residence was designed with a lock out apartment for the owner so the remainder of the structure could be used for weekly ski rentals to tourists.


Roof top photovoltaic with utility grid tie-in, hot water recovery system and insulation values that exceed standards are the core of this sustainable building.  Granite boulders from the site were used to construct retaining walls and were sliced to become counter tops.The majority of the exterior is covered with wildfire resistant materials while still keeping a rustic design.

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.
