The philosophy of CLB Architects, Inspired by Place, permeates all the firm’s design work, from public projects to bespoke homes. Their portfolio projects — timeless, thoughtful, distinct and beautiful — are examples of how to tread softly on the land in some of the world’s most iconic landscapes. They introduce a new approach to form and materiality in a region where the design world is often limited by a nostalgic view of the past.
Inspired By Place showcases ten homes by CLB Architects, many of which feature interiors by CLB’s design team; these are always sophisticated yet comfortable and conceived as an extension of the architecture. From a streamlined modern masterpiece on the banks of the Snake River to architecture as connected barnlike structures to a private glass pavilion retreat perfectly oriented for wildlife viewing, CLB’s work references local forms and vernaculars while speaking in a new architectural language for the Rocky Mountain West.
