Mountain Modern Home - Spanish Peaks Mountain Club - Big Sky, Montana
"Mountain modern" homes are starting to become the new trend in these high top, mountain retreats. This style of design allows for the cozy, intimate feel of the mountains without the dark and heavy, claustrophobic textures. The mountain modern home has more of a connection to the natural surroundings, an open airy feel, and lighter textures. Peers Homestead in Spanish Peaks Mountain Club in Big Sky, Montana is a perfect example of "mountain modern" at it's finest.
This past winter we spent three days shooting in Spanish Peaks. This home is a culmination of so many aspects I love in architecture. There is a rustic, mountain home feel but with modern and stylish touches. The detailed woodwork, custom stone, and steel beams show off the creativity and design. The large windows throughout the home brings the amazing outside surroundings, inside. You really feel as though you are in the deep in the Montana woods. The entry & great room has to be my favorite space in the home. You are welcomed to the through the impressive entry way and then immediately enter the great room with high vaulted ceilings. It's amazing that a space can be so open and grand yet have the intimate, cozy feel - it's truly stunning. As a photographer I LOVE natural light - this home has it, the natural light with the gorgeous views - win win.
