Sun Valley House By Studio Rick Joy

The vast, rolling hills of Idaho are often portrayed without a snow-capped mountain in sight, but in truth, the state houses much more than grain-gifted fields and spud-strewn farmland. The Sun Valley House, built by Studio Rick Joy, an architecture firm hailing from Tucson, Arizona, offers a rare look into one of middle America’s most isolated locations.

Built at the foot of Idaho’s Ruud Mountain, this dual-wing dwelling characterizes life among the state’s pine-crested province. Angular roofing, contemporary design principles, rustic wood siding, and expansive, panoramic windows adorn the exterior of the zinc- and stone-clad structure. In an effort to provide near-seamless integration with Idaho’s rugged landscape, the Sun Valley House utilizes various sloped volumes — peaked additions that draw inspiration from the snow-capped mountains looming overhead. Inside, a modern living area gives way to the home’s various amenities, such as a sauna, a large stone fireplace, and an elaborate deck where you can cast time aside in the company of good friends.
