Silk | Cavassa | Marchetti: Set amongst thick stands of lodgepole pines, this mountain home enjoys panoramic views of Lone Peak in Montana’s Big Sky region. Sited on a sloping hillside, the home is approached via a bridge that conceals the mind-popping views that await upon entering the home. Inside, views explode through floor-to-ceiling glass that extend the entire length of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Fifteen-foot-tall ceilings add to the power of this dramatic space. One can also enjoy views of Spanish Peaks through the clerestory windows on the north side of the great room.

At the west end of the home the primary bedroom sits at the prow of the ship with focused views of both Lone and Fan Peaks. Secondary bedrooms, bunk room, and entertainment space are located below, which also have floor to ceiling windows.

Weathered cedar, locally quarried stone, and patinaed stainless steel panels are the primary materials for this home to ensure a timeless low maintenance expression appropriate to this uniquely alpine setting.
