The holiday season is behind us and most of us are trying to shake off the festivities and rush as we get back to work. But for those still looking to hang onto those last few remnants of festive bliss we have a gorgeous vacation home among the majestic peaks and wild landscape of Montana and it seems to perfectly capture the holiday spirit!
But the resident of a landscape architect and physics professor wanted a contemporary home where the connectivity with the outdoors was an essential component and this led to the unique design of this Vancouver home that thrives on unassuming style and simplicity! Designed by Measured Architecture this modern-minimal hub is defined by clean straight lines and a neutral color scheme.
The designed by a21studĩo aims to capture the spirit of the region while trying to cherish the past and pass it on to the next generation.
