Idaho Buildings

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Idaho Building Developments, USA. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Idaho. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

Passive House Offices in Boise
An adaptive reuse project in Boise, ID. The project transformed a derelict auto repair shop into the regional headquarters for McCall-based EnergySeal Air Barrier Systems LLC, Idaho’s leading high-performance insulation contractor. A portion of the original building was demolished making space for a new parking area while the remaining building was renovated into a new 2,000 square foot office space. The program consists of a reception area, conference room, office space, storage garage and support spaces.

New Residence in Ketchum
This relatively small second home in Sun Valley is full of surprises — from its humble-to-grand design progression to its myriad custom details. Tucked unassumingly into the hillside at the rear, this 6,500-square-foot home’s two west-facing wings launch out of the landscape towards unobstructed, 270-degree views of Bald Mountain, Griffin Butte, and Adams Gulch.

Sun Valley Center for the Arts

With respect for the environment, Kundig’s projects consistently reveal his reverence for materials, while combining art, craft and the experience of built space. To give form to The Center’s mission, Kundig crafted a design concept based upon transparency and flexibility. The highly inventive structure features an exterior that is largely transparent on street level and a wrap-around wooden sun-screen that incorporates operable shutters to control light. Movable gallery walls can be rearranged so that curators can adapt the space to their vision for each exhibition. Kundig’s design will give views into the lobby and galleries and at night The Center will glow from the inside out. People passing by will see an ever-changing, intriguing internal landscape.

Tom Kundig was chosen as the architect for the new Sun Valley Center for the Arts after an extensive local and national search. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2008 with the building slated to open in 2010.
