Flying Star Residence
This signature mountain home can trace its beginnings to a rough outline in the sparkling powder of a Big Sky Country ski run. The Flying Star residence is a well-crafted contemporary home located in Bridger Canyon, a private residential enclave just outside of Bozeman, Montana. This 4,690 sq. ft., three-bedroom dwelling presents an appealing blend of minimalist European styling, expansive window walls, and natural interior effects, such as massive timber ceiling beams.
The project came to life when the contractor and I were skiing near the project site; we sketched out an initial layout into the snow, creating a viable floor plan that fused with the surrounding topography.
“The main inspiration for the project was to create an indoor-outdoor environment with lots of light and openness. Reynaers windows and doors are a major home feature, since glass makes up about 65 percent of the walls. The performance of the product has been exceptional through two snowy, cold winters and warm summers. Aesthetically, the windows’ thin sight lines adds to the views from every room. The operation of the Hi-Finity doors is awesome and the operable windows are nice for air circulation. I love our home. I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s so comfortable and quiet. I feel like I’m out camping when I’m in the bedroom”, expressed the homeowner.
