The New Western Home
Homes that exemplify sensitive renovation and preservation of the region's past.
The New Western Home proves that environmentally responsible and regionally appropriate choices can encompass cutting-edge designs and materials and that high end doesn’t have to mean overbuilt.
Among the homes featured are a new "built to look old” cabin compound tucked into the landscape at the bend in a river, and sustainable high country hideaways built completely off the grid. Historic rural and urban buildings, such as a former cigar factory tastefully turned into condos and an artifact-filled great room on a Wyoming ranch, exemplify sensitive renovation and preservation of the region’s past. And for the modernist minded, several homes show that contemporary, minimal interiors work to facilitate a full engagement with dramatic western landscapes.
