Sawmill Gulch Residence
Missoula, MT
Completed 2009

OZ Architects
531 N. Higgins Avenue
Missoula, MT 59802

This residence is a one-of-a-kind home nestled in the mountains near Missoula. The project team worked together to bring to life the client’s vision of a contemporary home with traditional accents. The house was sited to take advantage of the exceptional views — the landscaping was designed to frame these views and seamlessly blend into the native environment. The low slope roof and deep overhangs keep the building connected to the site as well and reinforce the sense that the home is neatly tucked into the mountainside. The exterior is clad in small panels of weathering steel and accented with wood and concrete.

Selecting an architect

follow these steps:
  • Consider selecting an architect as early as possible. Architects can help you define your project in every respect and may do site studies, assist in securing planning and zoning approvals, and provide a variety of other pre-design services.
  • To find a suitable firm talk to individuals that have a similar project and ask them if they were happy with the architect they selected. Review our featured projects to see if you are able to identify firms that match your project type and expectations. You can also consult our directory to find architects in your area.
  • Interview potential firms so you can learn how the architect’s team will approach your project. Also review projects the firm has designed that are similar in scale and type to yours.
