Big Timber, Montana
Yellowstone Bend Ranch is a 3,600 acre ranch in south-central Montana. In response to unsightly subdivisions on nearby sites, the owners of YBR established a permanent conservation of more than 85% of the ranch and partnered with local ranchers who sustainably graze cattle on much of the land. The Riverside Barbeque Pavilion is an outbuilding that offers residents a place in the landscape while providing shelter, and also offers long views to the mountains, river, and wildlife nearby. The materials and shapes of the structure recall local ranch vernacular.
