“X marks the spot” and frames a treasure of mountain views from an open ridge in Montana. The simple pinwheel cross plan of this modest house orients 4 wings towards dramatic views of the surrounding landscape. The low-slung weathering steel-clad house is both efficient and understated, taking its cues from the land while emphasizing modesty, simplicity, and pragmatic directness. Each wing is defined by basic functions: entrance & utilities, the main bedroom suite, primary living spaces, and guest accommodations & home office. The wings frame open courtyards, each with a unique character and orientation towards the distant landscapes. At the very center of the house is the kitchen and pantry for a couple who love good food as much as great landscapes.
