Rustic-modern Ski House in Big Sky by JLF & Associates
This timber and stone modern ski house is located in Big Sky, Montana, designed by New York City based interior design firm Haynes-Roberts in conjunction with Montana-based architecture firm JLF & Associates. Designed for a family with young children, the intention was to have plenty of the warmth and beauty of a Western house but infuse it with a hip, up-to-date sensibility. The structure was created to be authentic to the region, but it was pared down to communicate a 21st-century lifestyle. The architects designed the framing elements from large weathered barn timbers and clad ceilings and floors with reclaimed wood planks and built fireplace surrounds from locally sourced quarried stone.
