Inspired by Place showcases eleven homes designed by the architects of CLB from their studios in Wyoming and Montana. A portion of the homes also highlight the group’s interior design work, which strikes a balance between sophisticated and comfortable and is conceived as a natural extension of the architecture.
Evident in all CLB’s work is a bold contemporary spirit seeking original expression while referencing regional form and materials in creative ways. Whether a streamlined modern compound on the banks of the Snake River, a modest glass pavilion oriented for wildlife viewing or a home celebrating the region’s heritage in linked vernacular forms, each project is unique to client, setting, view, and the variables in nature. Over the course of three decades, CLB has established an architectural language for the Mountain West — one that is original, appropriate, and uniquely inspired by place. The firm's work is now found across the United States, with projects in Massachusetts, New York City, and California, among other places.
