Carney strives to create architecture that's appropriate to his Wyoming locale and to his firm's modern aesthetic. One way to ease the stylistic tension is to apply a contemporary twist to tried-and-true elements such as trusses, as he did with the ones in his home studio. Carney chose Belfer's halogen wedge to show off these raffish rafters. Speced in black, the fixture is delightfully discreet. “It's a little triangle that lights the ceiling beautifully,” he says.
