San Francisco-based BraytonHughes Design Studios has unveiled design details of the Village at Yellowstone Club, a major expansion of the private ski, golf, and adventure community. The Yellowstone Club, perched in the Rocky Mountains in Big Sky, Montana, just northwest of Yellowstone National Park, has been a destination since its opening in 1997.
The project encompasses three new buildings, each with amenity spaces on the first floors and residences above. The design team was called on to respect the rich geophysical landscape while creating a fresh, dynamic experience for a well-traveled membership. Additionally, the team designed with a mind to differentiate the new buildings within a unified village setting, with each conveying a unique aesthetic direction.
The restaurant’s design draws inspiration from Montana’s rugged landscape, using raw, natural materials, thick wood textures, soft leathers, and simple pattern fabrics to create a cozy, welcoming ambiance. Every detail displays a handmade quality that reflects precise craftsmanship and historical significance. The new specialty restaurant and bar taps the stylistic trappings of a modern barn, with a high, light-toned octagonal ceiling, large wooden doors, dark basalt stone tile, and dark bronze metal trims. A grand stone wall, replete with firewood nooks, frames a large fireplace. Furniture enhances the modern, comfortable feel with smooth patterns, metals, and neutral materials.
