Tengoku Residence is a project designed by CLB Architects. Injecting a dose of mid-century California modernism to the Rocky Mountain West, Tengoku Residence embraces the natural terrain of Jackson Hole in an unexpectedly modern way. Diverging from the mountain modern style typical of the region, the design of the 4,739-square-foot vacation home was inspired by the owner couple’s shared love of Japanese Zen gardens and mid-century modern design, as well as their backgrounds living in California and Hawaii. The resulting four-bedroom home is oriented around a series of three internal courtyards offering intimate views of single aspen trees, complementing the home’s sweeping, northwest views of the Tetons and a nearby pond, creating a setting the owner’s call Tengoku, the Japanese word for heaven.

The Lone Pine designed CLB Architects compound is set at the base of the Teton Range in a resort development at the edge of an open valley. Sited to take advantage of open spaces and view sheds, the house is oriented to screen neighboring structures while capitalizing on near views of the adjacent ski resort and surrounding mountain ranges.
