Shining Mountain Ranch Guest Lodge

Old World Sustainability, High Level Detail & Craftsmanship

This 10,000 SF lodge is located on a 4,500-acre ranch in French Creek.
The design inspiration comes from a Japanese aesthetic where larger building materials are used at the base and taper towards the roof. The structure is highly detailed and crafted with influences from the National Parks rustic style to give it a timeless aesthetic. Without removing trees or altering natural grade, the lodge was sited in a natural swale in a pine tree grove. The lodge is constructed with “fire killed” logs reclaimed from the 1987 Yellowstone fires. Reclaimed green slate was used for the roof. Only Indigenous moss rock on the ranch site was used.

Innovative design detailing, methodologies and a cantilevered log flying buttress lateral system created for this project allowed for large glass openings. The Lodge is a serious architectural building type utilizing man’s oldest natural building materials - stone and logs.
