This is a rustic-modern retreat in the Alpine Meadows area near Lake Tahoe, California. The owner, Todd Greenhalgh, wanted solar power and alpine views and CCS Architecture delivered just that.

This is the Kiwi House, an 823 square-foot abode in Bozeman, Montana. The home, owned by Stephen and Julie Shea, was designed by Comma-Q Architecture with the hearth — a soapstone fireplace from Finland-based Tulikivi – radiating warmth from open kitchen and living room area. It’s constructed on an infill lot and covered in a combination of locally-sourced Montana stone and reclaimed redwood and metal.
