The Yellowstone House isn't your typical alpine retreat. Elevated 8,100 feet in Montana's Madison Range, the modern dwelling, designed by Stuart Silk Architects, replaces the traditional lodge aesthetic with clean lines and industrial materials. Its exterior is clad in Core-ten steel and board-formed concrete, a combination that can withstand the area's harsh climate. Internally, a 16-foot great room dominates the main level. A selection of natural materials including blackened steel, cedar, and concrete along create sleek, minimalist living spaces for a collection of refined furnishings. In contrast, floor-to-ceiling glazing across the rear facade highlights views of Pioneer Peak, creating a rugged backdrop for the contemporary interior.
