Located in rural Montana, the Lakeview Residence is perched on a hillside, surrounded by scenic, heavily wooded property. Designed by Montana based Locati Architects, the home provides impressive views of the nearby mountains. The architect made an effort to ensure the interior of the Lakeview Residence was tied to its natural surroundings with extensive use of natural materials. Providing a warm, inviting retreat from the snow covered mountains was also a priority in designing the interior. Consequently, most surfaces in the home are either wood or stone. Floors, ceilings, and structural members are constructed from wood of varying species and tones. Stone types and colors are also mixed throughout the interior, covering floors, accent walls, and fireplaces. The overall effect is a hospitable, textural environment fitting of its context.
