OZ Interns Win Billings Design Competition

April 14, 2014

OZ interns, Logan Kato and Kurt McGrane, along with their friends, Logan Hendricks and Steve Clayton, have won First Prize in the 2014 Billings Architectural Association Staging the Site Competition.

Their design draws inspiration from vernacular ranch and cabin buildings of the high prairies of Southern Montana. The Folding Roof House combines traditional and contemporary forms for a site engaging experience in Rehberg Ranch subdivision. The forms play nicely with their neighbors while reflecting an architecture of the current era. Home owners will enjoy the open, light filled, living areas and dramatic view oriented outdoor spaces. The home has been designed from the outset to be sustainable and energy efficient while not compromising aesthetics or function.

The design is being put up for sale to be built on the site it was developed for just north of Billings, MT in the Rehberg Ranch Development.  An associated video for the home was completed with the assistance of another friend of the team, Pat Fava. Click here to watch the video.
