Houzz Tour: Naturally Modern in the Mountains
Near Montana’s Glacier National Park, the town of Whitefish boasts a largely rustic architectural vernacular: log cabins, stone walls, steeply pitched roofs. And when the owner of a sloping forested lot with views of Whitefish Lake and a ski mountain wanted to build a home that was modern and clean, he intended the design to feel like it still fit with the local style. He tapped architect David Koel of CTA Architects Engineers and interior designer Hunter Dominick of Hunter and Company Interior Design to help create a two-story home that was simple, airy and locked into the landscape with natural, humble materials. In other words, a home that belonged right where it was.
