Merge a Norwegian aesthetic with a Rocky Mountain setting.  That was the task with this property in the Big EZ Preserve in Big Sky, Montana.  A series of structures were laid out to hug the treeline along the edge of a meadow.  Simplicity in design.  Emphasis on cozy, human-scaled spaces.  A three bedroom main house, guest barn featuring bunk-style sleeping and an artist studio, comfortably blending into the natural folds of the geography of the property.  The simple design allows the native Montana moss rock, reclaimed wood and the intricate details throughout to take prominence.
