Mount Helena Residence
Residential | New Construction
This 'Mountain West' vernacular has a heavy influence from the coastal homes of the northeast United States, where the residents called home for many years.
The residence is situated to optimize views of the iconic Mount Helena and the Helena Valley to the north.
The upper level ‘folly’ office provides 360° views of the entire Helena area – a key design requirement from the client.
The home is oriented to provide stunning views of the Helena Valley from decks and living spaces with added views of Mount Helena from the kitchen. A hearth at the end of the vaulted living room provides warmth for the connected living and dining spaces.
Steep Site Opportunities
The small, steep site provided unique design opportunities. A large, drive-in garage is featured at the lower level, sunk back into the hill, with living space above.
A basement-level greenhouse absorbs the southern sun and a spacious kitchen area welcomes the morning sun from the east.
