Sited on an 18-acre meadow surrounded by mountains and pastures, the Dogtrot House is a contemporary homestead in rural Wyoming. Its simple, gabled forms resemble the region's barn structures. Oxidized steel clads the sprawling rectangular dwelling, complementing the rural scenery with a rusty facade. Its namesake feature is an 80-foot-long breezeway connecting the two volumes. Acting as an entryway, the outdoor space leads to a minimalist refuge created by a restrained material palette of concrete, steel, and larch. Expansive glazed panels display the rugged terrain to the interior while a series of integrated terraces afford protected outdoor spaces to take in views of Mount Glory in the distance.
