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.

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?
