This Home and Guest House Form a Visual Enclosure

Dynia Architects designed the 'John Dodge Residence,' a home and guest house located at the foot of the Teton Mountains in Jackson, Wyoming.

The architects were looking to design a home on an "intimate scale." They placed the main house by the northwest mountains and the guest house by the southeast corner, in a specific configuration that informed the outdoor spaces. The placement of the buildings form an enclosure that is framed by the mountains. The exterior placement also has an effect on the home's interior, blurring the demarcation between indoors and outdoors.

Visitors enter the home through an entry court, which is defined by a concrete wall that acts as the home's "major circulation spine."
