Placed in Big Sky, a census-designated place (CDP) in Gallatin and Madison counties in the southwestern part of the U.S. state of Montana, this striking residence called River Bank House is especially envisioned and implemented by Balance Associates Architects for clients who are interested in entertainment. Contemporary and eye-catching, the River Bank House presents imposing architecture and powerful indoor-outdoor connections.
“The house is separated into the main living area and the guest wing. The guest area is designed so that it can be shut off from the rest of the house when unoccupied and set back to a lower temperature when not in use.
Additionally, the two wings of the house bend in order to capture the best views of the river and create a protected entry courtyard.
The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter.”, explained the architects.
