North Ave Residence

Missoula, MT 59802

This project consisted of a functional and aesthetic 'face-lift' to an existing residence. The Owner had recently purchased the property for its location and amenities, but desired a completely different look and feel. Roof forms were modified and replaced to provide generous overhangs, with knee braces, fancy cut exposed rafter tails and gentle swoops in the manner of high quality craftsman detailing. New shingles, siding and trim above a natural stone wainscot were installed over exterior insulation to improve thermal performance and comfort. All doors and windows were replaced to match the character and further improve energy efficiency.

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).
