Project Description

Watershed lodge is sited among spring-fed ponds on a 2000-acre Montana ranch in the flood plain near the mouth of the Yellowstone River. The wondrous geysers, hot springs and bountiful wildlife of this environment have inspired its stewardship as a place of inspiration to be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations. The 3,600 square foot structure sits on a 30” tall porous plinth raising the finish floors well above the flood line, allowing rising waters to pass around and under the foundation. A covered walkway on the western side of the property adds to width of the wood-clad structure to evoke the scale and language of a frontier town. Within the open plan, a hanging orb fireplace anchors the two wings and provides a focal point, for the entry on one side, and the living/dining area on the other.
