The site consists of 14 acres at the edge of the cobbled alluvial fan of the Absoroka Mountains in Paradise Valley, Montana. The house, designed by RoTo Architects, sits on the edge of the only sheltering feature, an ancient bank of the now receded Yellowstone River, in a valley famous for its winds, "Marlboro Country" views, and storms. The land is treeless, and the perfectly parabolic bank that dissects the property in a north south line anchors the project. The owner's original program called for a part time residence to be constructed in two parts.
