A short video by JLF Architects with offices in Bozeman, Montana, Jackson, Wyoming, and Park City, Utah, reflects the top mountain architecture firm’s unique, hands-on process in collaboration with Big-D Signature builders to create legacy homes. Shot in stunning Jackson Hole, the video highlights an award-winning house atop a Teton butte created by the design-build team.

A new short video from JLF Architects reflects the process of the award-winning Rocky Mountain West architecture firm to create custom-designed legacy homes often in dramatic mountain settings.

"Here we create buildings that redefine home, designs greater than the sum of their parts."

Celebrating the power of place and craftsmanship in design, JLF Architects, with offices in Bozeman, Montana, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Park City, Utah, recently released a short video that showcases their collaborative creative work with construction partner Big-D Signature, set in Wyoming’s remarkable Jackson Hole landscape. “Our process is human,” explains the video’s voice-over, “hand-crafting, hand holding, hand-forging every moment in the careful synergy of partnership.”

Filmed near Jackson, Wyoming, the video reflects the timeless quality of JLF Architects’ projects with Big-D Signature, working at an artisanal level of craftsmanship with reclaimed timber and stone to create comfortable contemporary houses in close dialogue with the region’s history and landscape. The new short film specifically highlights a Jackson Hole residence that earned the team the Home of the Year Award from Mountain Living magazine in 2016. “Here we create buildings that redefine home, designs greater than the sum of their parts,” the video continues, concluding with, “a building that has always been and always will be.”

Nestled on a hilltop against the dramatic Teton mountain range, the award-winning house appears to grow from the landscape atop the Gros Vent West. Known for creating legacy homes for clients, JLF Architects designed the residence both to fit the current needs of an active contemporary family of five and as a time-honored place for generations to come. The video provides a 365-degree view of the architecture’s deep connection to its ruggedly beautiful site, while offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the multidimensional thought process and detailed hand-crafted efforts that go into creating a JLF Architects-designed home.

“This video is an attempt to capture the holistic process of creating a home, which is all-encompassing and involves the client, the land, the design team and the build team,” says JLF Architects principal Logan Leachman, who also appears in the video.

In 2001 JLF Architects and Big-D Signature united in a partnership to create buildings that redefine home. Their award-winning perspective is powered by inspired design and an exacting eye for placement, an ethos that stems from a unity of nature, beauty, balance and imagination. Unlike a traditional top-down model of architect as dictator, the JLF and Big-D design-build relationship ensures a seamless manifestation of the client’s vision through transparent reporting, honest promises and quality-control. Based on a shared team vision, the collaborative, communicative process ultimately enhances creativity.
