BEHIND THE DESIGN

Nestled into the mountainous terrain of Whitefish, Montana, this expansive ski in/ski out chalet is harmoniously rooted in an inherent connection to the surrounding environment. Folding organically along the natural contours of the landscape, the true scale of the structure is hidden. The design carves a serpentine form, providing privacy toward the street while the rear façade cascades down the sloped grade, opening toward the majestic mountain views beyond. The dynamic floorplan is intentionally laid out to frame the captivating 270-degree views the site offers.  Heavily focused on interior relationships with exterior spaces, numerous outdoor living spaces wrap the rear of the home. The elements are organized by the solar movement, dissipation of light throughout the residence conveys a calming sense of solitude and harmony with the great outdoors. Borrowing from the local vernacular, the façade incorporates rich wood and natural stone from the area creating an exterior material palette that is warm and welcoming. Providing unparalleled contemporary mountain living, this chalet is a skier’s paradise.
