From the architect. This remote Montana Camp is situated along a sloping hill, leading visitors to discover the site progressively. From the gatehouses, a path leads down the hill to the master house, main lodge, and guesthouse. The buildings offer warm, almost cave-like spaces as well as expansive porches, open to the views and sunlight. Small windows and thick walls facing into the slope of the site are contrasted with entire walls that open up towards the lake. Inhabitants may choose to be outdoors while inside by sliding open walls or moving outside to spaces that are more civilized than the outlying wilderness. Similarly, with each bedroom’s separate screened-in space, it is always possible to sleep in nature and yet still be secure within the building.

The materials and textures of these buildings connect them to the site. The effect is paradoxical: despite their size, the camp’s large structures seem to emerge from the rock, wood, and grasses that surround them. Like the lake, they feel as if they have been - and will be - here forever.

Very interesting project. Beautiful use of materials. Photos are excellent but do not show the whole project, only bits.

lemi · October 13, 2010

havnet seen anything this restrained and poetic from america for decades

sam · October 13, 2010

I'm curious about the wood too. Beautiful, but there's a pretty good reason why we generally try to protect its end grain. Wonder what the trick is.

Paul · January 27, 2011 05:39 AM

Any chance of finding the details on how the wood wall was put?

I'm wondering if there's any sort of mortar/ glue involved...

architect · October 13, 2010

beautiful use of materials and i have to agree that the master bedroom is quite big.

would love to see details on how the 'shelved' wood is built and how it works in terms of isolation..

Paul · January 27, 2011 05:37 AM

Hello, was wondering if you by any chance found out eventually some details on the way the wood is shelved and how it works in terms of insulation...--

I am very intrigued myself...

This project is in Montana - not Texas. ArchDaily has mixed up the pictures and information of two of our projects. Editors, please fix this and repost.

May want to rewrite your text, as you're describing a totally different project of AWA's (Temple Ranch).

Yep. This is definitely in Bigfork Montana, not Texas.

Flick · October 01, 2010

Simply awesome. Modern design but with rugged and rustic features. Truly remarkable. I'm forwarding this one to my friends and relatives to see.

TF · October 01, 2010

sorry Texas, Just checked the website for Andersson Wise...I believe this project is located in Montana, not Texas.

cl · October 01, 2010

brilliant in many ways. I love the window that slides down the house for open air dining... window slides down, guard rail slides up...! the master bedroom is incredible, especially the "sleeping porch!" the whole thing is awesome... I could totally hang out there!

Texas Ranger · October 01, 2010

Damn. Texas is not only what they show in the movies and TV.
Cordell Walker would be a poet-fisherman in this scenery.

Beautiful house. Wonderful landscape.
Huge master bedroom/closet/bathroom.

Texas Ranger · October 13, 2010 12:28 PM

Damn!
I was hoping it was Texas! lol

It´s just on the other side of America. Could it be more distant? Only if it were in Alaska...

Oh, well. I guess Chuck Norris sneezed during the night and when he woke up they were on Montana, house included.

Nico · October 01, 2010

Beautiful use of materials!..
