One of the most advantageous things about building with steel is you can fabricate it to suit any space perfectly. That’s the reason this architect chose steel in order to create this home that wouldn’t disturb the landscape but actually be harmony with it. It’s a difficult task to accomplish, unless you’re using steel, of course. To begin your project using CanAm Steel, call us today!

US studio Abramson Teiger has created a rural Wyoming home that consists of low-lying volumes made of glass, concrete and weathering steel.
The Wyoming Residence is located near Jackson, a quaint town in the west of the state that is ringed by mountains.
Encompassing 7,000 square feet (650 square metres), the single-storey house is set within a gently sloping meadow. It consists of two low-lying, rectilinear volumes and a detached garage that is sunken into the landscape.
Creating a building that worked in harmony with the natural setting was a paramount concern for the design team.
“Echoing the grandeur of the Teton Mountain Range whilst seamlessly inhabiting the adjacent grassland, the Wyoming Residence exhibits a conscientious marriage of form and material,” said Abramson Teiger Architects, a Los Angeles-based studio.
“The home manages to feel stately and striking at the entrance, but is hidden from view looking down the meadow and up from the valley floor.”
“Almost every material implemented in this home was done so to create a maintenance-free space that withstands the weather and betters with age,” the architects said.
