Boulder Retreat is an innovatively architected mountain home in Wyoming that takes the concept of blending in with its surroundings to the next level, seeing as how it is essentially built around a massive boulder.

Designed by Carney Logan Burke, this mountain home in Wyoming features two primary volumes that are designed around the boulder and are connected by a bridge volume. The home, which is located near a ski resort, features large windows that let in ample natural light, as well as weatherproof barnwood boards on the outside.

This mountain home in Wyoming goes to show how intelligent design and engineering can make it possible for buildings and dwellings to be constructed even in rugged natural surroundings, while respecting the aesthetic of the environment.
