Luxury Big Sky holiday home in Montana
According to the designers: “Although this property shares the mountainside with classic American vernacular log cabin estates, Cotsovolos, with LC² Design Services has styled this holiday home to express modern mountain luxury with just the right amount of Vegas ‘bling’. Nestled among the tall pines of the Rocky Mountains, this luxury holiday home reflects characteristics of modernist architecture, which typically features glass walls, post-and-beam construction, exposed steel, and open floor plans; however, Cotsovolos also introduced unique finishes, opulent furnishings, and other details, which he sourced worldwide to create a warm, dark and mysterious home that is internationally inspired.
“The interior design concept is focused around Earth’s elements in nature and the geology of the region. The colours, textures, woods, and other nuances were pulled directly from nature, allowing the home to perfectly blend into its surroundings, as if it had grown in its place among the trees. The monumentality of the landscape is balanced in the interior by the proportions of the millwork, oversized furnishing, and scale of the spaces. To further blur the distinction between the interiors and exteriors, and to celebrate the breathtaking views, the home boasts full-height, floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow the exterior to merge into the interiors regardless of the season. As the colours of nature outside change with the seasons, the colours of the interiors of the home also subtly change to maintain the Zen monochromatic palette year round.
Cotsovolos tirelessly space-planned the flow and sequence of spaces, allowing his interior detailing to dictate the shape and position of the architecture. Each view corridor and elevation was carefully studied by the designer and his team to ensure that the breathtaking views were always celebrated, and the sequence of rooms flowed logically and elegantly.
Len Cotsovolos, said: “The focal directions of the end users and their sightlines were taken into careful consideration when deciding where to place the interior furnishings, and where the windows and partition walls were positioned in the floor plans.”
