DESIGNER AMANDA HEYS, PARTNER OF THE BOZEMAN, MONTANA-BASED FIRM LOCATI INTERIORS, HAS A SURPRISING METHOD FOR GAUGING THE DIRECTION OF HER CLIENTS’ DESIGN SENSIBILITIES. “I usually begin with the plumbing,” she says. “Seeing whether the homeowners gravitate to a traditional kitchen faucet or something more edgy and contemporary gives me important information about where their tastes lie.”

…“The way that they (Locati Architects) say it is, they put the house in the landscape rather than on the landscape,” Jim said. “They did a great job with that. I said, ‘They keep saying they’re going to put the house in the landscape rather than on the landscape, I think we should take it one step further,’ so we did.”
When it came to design, Architect Kevin Bute said the Schonewise’s home was a “welcome change for me as a designer.” The couple had several “must haves” on their list – maximized view sheds, a covered deck to watch the thunderstorms sweep across the landscape, a functional floor plan and flexible office space – and he helped them to achieve each one.
According to Bute, the home is “far from anything Locati Architects had completed in the past.”
“Because of Locati Architects’ exceptional skill in designing homes that speak of place and timelessness through natural elements, it is sometimes difficult to break out of that ideal,” Bute said. “This project was a chance to do just that and showcase another architectural vernacular.”
