Park County, Montana
Green House of the Year, Organic Style
This small open-plan house was specifically designed to respond to its client's whimsical lifestyle. An "endless" pool in the primary living space provides opportunity for daily exercise while also lending a "tropical" sensibility to the rocky mountain context. Large, movable bookcases allow the living area to be open for large social gatherings or closed to separate artist studio from public parts of the house.
Passive orientation provided with southern facing windows perform double-duty by opening the house to spectacular views of the near Absaroka Mountains.
