Madisons View, Moonlight Basin, Big Sky, MT

Madison’s View is a custom residence located in the ski-in ski-out neighborhood of Moonlight Basin, Big Sky, Montana, which is high up in the Rocky Mountains. The style of this home can be classified as Mountain Modern. The home has a open floor plan layout with large windows to allow for stunning views of the Spanish Peaks. These modern elements were combined with rustic materials such as large timbers, rustic wood siding, and natural stone.

The site the home was built on is very steep, which presented some design challenges. Accessing the home was very difficult due to the steep slope, so the home essentially got flipped around or turned backwards. A bridge was created to connect the entrance point at the high end of the slope to the rest of the home that was down slope. An elevator was then put in place to take you down to the living area. The elevator became a focal point with the main stair wrapping around it and eight foot steel trusses run from the elevator across the great room.
