Stone Creek Camp by Andersson Wise Architects. Montana, US
Short pieces of debarked timber are stacked to form the walls of this remote wilderness retreat, designed for an active family by US studio Andersson-Wise Architects.
The Stone Creek Camp is located in Big Fork, a scenic area in northwestern Montana. It was built for a couple and their grown children, who have families of their own.
The complex consists of both private zones and communal areas, along with a series of interlocking exterior courtyards. “Each structure is designed to make a courtyard that allows light to come into the buildings during the dark winter months,” the firm said.
The remote camp is nestled into a hill and is organised in a way that enables visitors to “discover the site progressively”. Guests pass through a gatehouse and then travel down a path that leads to a lodge, the main home and a guest dwelling.
