Influenced by the surrounding landscape, the Firefly Residence is a cabin-style home that sets a new standard for mountain retreats. Light served as a primary design element in this residential space. The home’s orientation captures sunset to the west, and its interior spaces are arranged to provide unobstructed vista views. By maximizing sunlight through windows in each room and fixture selection focused on carrying soft, natural light into the interior, the home is energy-efficient while embodying a gentle, organic glow.
The design choices reflect a warm, rustic aesthetic that artfully blend with modern amenities throughout. Rich wood cabinetry, flooring, and exposed beams are emphasized by a subdued color palette in paint and tile. Stone fireplaces inside and under the covered patio extend the indoor living spaces into the great outdoors. This curated design aesthetic effectively complements the modern mountain lifestyle the homeowners and their guests enjoy in rural Montana.
