ShineMaker Residence Is A Serene Retreat Built For A California Couple

Spanning thirty-five acres at the base of the Tetons, ShineMaker boasts a main house, guest house, and writer’s studio.

Nestled within the serene embrace of an aspen grove near Wilson, Wyoming, the ShineMaker Residence stands as a testament to architectural ingenuity and natural harmony. Crafted by the visionary minds at CLB Architects and HSH Interiors, this newly completed retreat compound celebrates the majestic beauty of its surroundings.

Spanning thirty-five acres at the foot of the Tetons, ShineMaker serves as a sanctuary for a California-based couple. They can immerse themselves in nature and nurture their creative spirits in this haven. Comprising a main house, guest house, and writer’s studio, the compound unfolds as a trio of simple yet elegant boxes, each meticulously designed to complement its environment.

The main house, with its 6,000 square feet of living space, emerges as a ‘geologic remnant’ amidst the landscape, while the guest house and writer’s studio nestle intimately within the wooded terrain. Plans for a fourth structure, imbued with a ‘spiritually focused’ design, promise to enhance the retreat’s holistic ambiance.

From the charred shou sugi ban exterior to the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, every element of ShineMaker’s architecture blurs the boundaries between indoor comfort and outdoor splendor. Inside, a rich palette of materials—including wood, steel, bronze, and Italian limestone—creates a harmonious fusion of luxury and natural beauty.

Inspired by the clients’ bohemian lifestyle and love for music and literature, the interior design exudes warmth and sophistication. The guest house, adorned with carved-away entries and rectilinear forms, beckons guests to unwind in style, while the writer’s studio stands as a solitary sentinel amidst the whispering aspen trees—a haven for contemplation and creativity.
