Set on a plot of open prairie land near Jackson, Wyoming, the Safir House makes the most of its location by orienting the home's myriad windows to maximize views of the Grand Tetons. The view can be seen through the main entrance all the way through to the open kitchen, dining, and living space. As the family soon outgrew the main house, a guest home was recently added, with a sunken driveway preserving the views. The exterior of both buildings is finished in reclaimed wood and hand-fabricated steel cladding meant to corrode over time, and the two work together to complete the shape of the courtyard.
