We recently received an interesting architecture project from Keuka Studios, a company specialized in producing stair railings. Here is the full description they sent us: “Although some would argue that the words rustic and modern should not belong in the same sentence, this modern rustic Montana home is proof that the two can coexist, beautifully. Ample use of wood and stone help the home blend nicely with the heavily wood lot. Bold geometry was carefully combined with traditional log home elements in a way that is sensitive to the environment. Sustainable materials were selected wherever possible. Soaring floor to ceiling glass like a movie screen, establish an intimate connection with the natural environment beyond.  Curved decks and balconies help soften the transition to the landscape while the extensive use of curved cable railings from Keuka Studios contribute to a unique personality.

The cable balusters were selected as they minimally intrude on the natural views. Crossing the glass floor walkway is like a strolling through a national park on your way to relax with a good book. The balcony offers a unique vantage point to take in the breathtaking views. On close inspection, the craftsmanship of the builder Hoyt Homes is evident though every aspect of this airy mountain home from the massive stone fireplace to the unique handrail treatment on the rustic stairway.”
