Collaborative Design Architects
2280 Grant Road, Suite C
Billings, Montana 59101

Located at the base of a natural sandstone crest that runs through the heart of Billings, this home presents a clean & modern interpretation to the Italian Villa. The residence was designed around a simple open floor plan. It was important to the clients that the windows were tall to allow natural light to penetrate the home's interior and give it a light and airy feel. Private patios on the north and west side of the home are cut into the hillside offering protection from both sound and wind.

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).
