Pattee Canyon Overlook Residence
Missoula, MT
Completed 2006

OZ Architects
531 N. Higgins Avenue
Missoula, MT 59802

This residence overlooks dramatic views of the valley from a prominent knob above Missoula’s Pattee Canyon. The home was oriented to maximize views as well as a sensitivity to its visual impact on the hillside from below. The house is designed in the style of a Montana lodge structure, but with an added sophistication. The heavy timber connections are custom steel knife plates giving them a clean, more contemporary appearance. The exterior utilizes locally quarried stone combined with cedar siding and a zinc roof. Heavy timbers beginning on the exterior and extend into the interior to provide a comfortable warmth to the spaces.

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?
