Wilderness Ridge House Maximizing Its Privileged Location

Pushing the more modern edge of mountain modern, the Wilderness Ridge House hovers within the trees on a steep hillside with views from Lone Peak to Yellowstone Park. The house was set up as a glass box sitting on a stone base with a stone wall paralleling the hillside along the back.

This spectacular space boasts expansive windows, and an elegant steel structure. Artful infusions of stone and rough hewn elements create a uniquely contemporary and yet Western character.
