Impressive contemporary mountain retreat in Montana built for entertaining

contemporary-mountain-residence-exterior

This impressive contemporary mountain retreat was designed as a family getaway by architecture studio Cushing Terrell, located near the town of Lakeside, Montana. A couple from Texas selected this site for its privacy and solitude, as it is in a remote area high above Flathead Lake. The architects designed expansive windows in the home to take advantage of the magnificent views of the lake far below.

Not only is this home a retreat for the family, but also a place to entertain friends. The architects devised various plan arrangements, but the style that suited them best was a simple “pod” layout. This enables each pod to essentially define itself while also offering privacy to this home’s inhabitants and bringing in substantial amounts of natural light into every single nook and cranny in the place.

The pod arrangements allowed outward views of the surrounding landscape to be uniquely framed by other elements of the home. This also helped to create very intriguingly internalized “captures” of nature in the crafted garden spaces between the pods themselves.

An artist was commissioned to craft outdoor sculptures seen in a few manicured outdoor areas. Materially, the dwelling is mostly composed of aluminum storefront glass to capture views and light. There is also an abundance of natural stone and reinforced wood veneer rain screen panels to ground the structure to its rugged and rocky site. Other than occasional carpets and tiles, the floors are generally bamboo.

The kitchen cabinetry was custom-designed and installed by a local artisan. While certainly not understated in form, the project was designed to appear elusive and viewed only fleetingly at best from far below, then essentially vanish until the proper road is discovered, leading guests to the entry side of the home where by contrast, guests are greeted with a long, outstretched entry canopy designed to beckon them in warm and welcoming hospitality.
