In Grand Teton National Park, the natural environment looms large. At Jackson Hole Airport, the only U.S. airport located in a national park, CLB Architects and Gensler teamed up for a redesign that would bring the space into the future while honoring its breathtaking surrounds.

After completing several earlier updates to the airport, CLB returned for this latest expansion and renovation, prioritizing a design that respects the natural context.

“Warm, tactile timber elements pay homage to the vernacular architecture of the American West, applying it to a distinctly future-oriented purpose,” says Kevin Burke, CLB’s partner in charge of the project. “Clear sight corridors, as well as abundant glazing framing the runways and Teton Range, orient travelers to their place within the landscape.”
