When building and designing an alpine refuge, architecture and the interior design plays an integral part. The natural elements of the outdoors become the focal point of each room through expansive windows and framed views. Beyond that, combining the right materials and textures layered together only adds to the serenity. Hearty and natural materials are best. In particular, reclaimed wood – which has already proven its longevity – adds provenance and history. With the mountains of Montana as a backdrop, your only choice is to honor their majesty.
