Located on the south shore of Flathead Lake, this cabin sits on a narrow site that slopes steeply down to the water. The cabin is designed as a simple wedge emerging from the ground. The native grass covered roof matches the site’s underlying slope. Interior and exterior living spaces interweave with the grade and look to stunning views up the length of the lake. Floor to ceiling doors encircle three sides of the living room. A massive indoor/outdoor masonry fireplace anchors the building to the landscape.

How to Be an Architect

Architects must be licensed before they can practice as an architect or call themselves an architect. There are three main steps in becoming an architect: education, internship and examination.

  • Education: The Montana State University School of Architecture offers a Master of Architecture professional degree that is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite.
  • Internship: Most state architectural registration boards require architectural graduates to complete an internship in order to become licensed.
  • Examination: All states require the completion of the Architect Registration Examination, in order to gain licensure within the 54 jurisdictions covered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB).
