EHA Family Trust Residence in Wilson, Wyoming
The EHA Family Trust Residence was completed in 2011 by the Wyoming based studio Ward+Blake Architects. This elegant rustic retreat is situated on a low lying lot in the wetlands, surrounded by Aspen trees and natural water features.
EHA Family Trust Residence in Wilson, Wyoming:
“This residence is sited in a natural clearing in a huge grove of aspen trees on a low lying lot situated between the Teton Range and the Snake River in north-western Wyoming. As the site is dominated by jurisdictional wetlands; natural water courses and man-made water features figure prominently in the site design.
The house is based in a north-south/east-west orientation to capture views and to provide favourable southern exposure. Building structure of regularly spaced bays defined by custom columns and trusses follows this orientation and relates the structure to the site’s orientation. Material palette attempts to reconcile the tension created between modern architectural form with traditional reclaimed exterior siding, and weathered cor-ten corrugated roofing. The interior materials offer a refined palate of laminated bamboo, polished concrete and Russian Birch millwork to a natural setting.”
