"Nature is the best designer," says Paul Bertelli of JLF Architects. In fact, that is why he and his team let it be the landscape of Wilson, Wyoming, who inspired the construction of this rustic and contemporary house.

The owners wanted the house to look "one century old", and to achieve this effect, the architects used materials from old huts and sheds in the Rocky Mountains. The result? Almost 370 square meters with reclaimed cedar plank floors, rusty metal panels, hand-treated logs and stone walls.

But these types of approaches are not new to JLF, since the firm usually rescues and reuses collapsed structures to give character and charm to its new creations, just as they did with this other house in Wyoming, for which they used the remains of an old dairy cattle stable in Montana.

Returning to Wilson's property, the house is divided into three connected structures where the main house with living room, living areas, a kitchen and bedrooms on the upper floor, as well as a separate cabin for guests and a garage with bedroom included . But the most incredible is undoubtedly the dining room, with glass doors on each side perfect for dining with views of nature, and if time permits, also with fresh air! Do not miss the photos…
