Lake View Residence
hauser lake, montana
Nestled into the aggressively sloped site, this home was sited to take advantage of the views to Hauser Lake as well as the passive solar opportunities. The plan responds to solar orientations, lake views, private vs. public space progression and site arrival. Building upon the basic principles of northern climate design, the back of the house is sheltered in the mountain; the hearth, placed at the rear, warms the home in the winter and opens up to passive solar heat opportunities and light at the south facade.
