Beautiful Houses: River Bank House in Montana
Fri, 03/30/2012 - 02:19
The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
The River Bank is a project by Balance Associates Architects. The house sits along the Gallatin River just outside Big Sky, Montana, USA. Since the clients love to entertain the house was set up to create an open and casual atmosphere, besides offering a strong connection to the outdoors. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter. The house also counts with two wings to capture the best views of the river and create a protected entry courtyard.
In my opinion this is the perfect "mountain house." The use of wood, the huge glass windows, the amazing view... everything here creates a nice and cozy mountain retreat. A great place to enjoy the nature counting with comfort and style. Definitely a great place to live! ;)
