About Tengoku Residence

Mid-Century Modernism meets the Rocky Mountains – Tengoku Residence

Nestled in Jackson, Wyoming, the Tengoku Residence is an architectural marvel that injects a dose of mid-century California modernism into the Rocky Mountain West. At 4,700 square feet (436 m²), the four-bedroom vacation home was inspired by the shared love of Japanese culture and mid-century design of the owner couple.

Captivating Courtyards, Framed Views

The home is arranged around a series of organically shaped roof openings and garden courtyards that draw attention to the sweeping views of the pond and the Tetons beyond. The result is a setting the owners call Tengoku, Japanese for “paradise.” Uninterrupted glass walls maximize the framing of nature taking place throughout the house.

Optimized Ventilation, Unifying Design

The S-shaped plan of the home separates the public and private spaces while an angular façade and triple-paned windows help optimize heat retention in the winter. Clerestory windows and exterior rigid insulation facilitate airflow in warmer months. The continuous roof plane ties the building together into a unified form, and expressive overhangs and thin roof lines pick up on the mid-century aesthetic.

A Colorful, Artful Interior

Inside, light oak floors and white cabinetry keep the focus on the outdoors, while pops of color come from art, furnishings, and finishes. A translucent purple amethyst slab is integrated into a south-facing window at the entry, and large format slabs of Caracas blue limestone clad the double-sided fireplace. Vintage furnishings and pieces from the owner’s main residence in California also add character to the interior.
