Incredible mountain modern dwelling offers slope-side living in Montana


This mountain modern dwelling was designed by Centre Sky Architecture, located in the ski-in ski-out neighborhood of Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana. The homeowner made several requests to the architect for the design of their home, this included: an increase the area for an active family, allow the design to fit within the current neighborhood, capture as much western sun as possible, and “surprise us”.

As the architectural team progressed through the design of this dwelling, the term “business in front and party in the back” was coined. This term came about from the simplistic details that were used on the front facade, while more creative design features were integrated towards the rear of the abode. As one approaches the front of this residence, you are greeted by a typical roof line and simple forms.


Above: The living room is centered around the natural stone fire-place, creating a warm gathering area. The space is a mix of rustic wood with natural stone.


As one enters the home, the roofline was lifted to create vaulted glass walls, connecting to the magnificent views and outdoor living. The lifted roof helps to create a mountain modern effect on the interior living spaces, while the exterior aesthetic portrays a very innovative look.


What We Love: This mountain modern dwelling provides a warm and cozy atmosphere that is perfect for slope-side living. We can imagine spending a day on the slopes and coming home to this inviting abode to warm up and relax. Large windows showcase spectacular views of the beauty that surrounds this residence… Readers, what are your thoughts? Could you imagine spending your vacations in this welcoming retreat?

Is there anyway I could see the floor plan? Not a working floor plan for building, just the layout. These photos are really nice, but I can’t see how the house is laid out. Thanks.

I love the stone and want to use it in my new home. What is the name of the stone?
Also, what are the ceilings made of? If a stain was used, what was the make and color?
