FLATHEAD HYGGE LAKEHOUSE

On the shores of Flathead Lake rests a revived family lakehome. The goal was a modern, organic and serene getaway that is “place” inspired and timeless. Beautifully designed… but not too precious. Per Wikipedia, the Danish concept of hygge is defined as, “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” This was the essence of the design, whether sleeping two people or fourteen.

The original cabin had two additions added over time; the resulting aesthetic was a 1978 hermetically sealed ranch style home. The biggest move was rotating the roof over the original 24′ x 24′ cabin (the area that today is living and dining) 90 degrees. Due to this, the glassy gable endwall overlooking the lake was created, complete with a 20′ sliding door. With its connection to the site, the home is equally inspiring in the height of summer or the depths of a snowy winter.
