Flathead Lake, MT
Completed 2012

125 West Alder Street
Missoula, MT 59802

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.

You and your architect:
Getting Started

ask yourself these questions:
  • How will your project be used — do you have specific ideas on how to translate these activities into spaces and square footage?
  • Do you have a site or will this also be a subject of discussion with your architect?
  • Have you decided upon a schedule or budget?
  • What are your overall aesthetic and emotional, as well as practical, aspirations for the project?
