BRIGGS ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN

montana

Briggs Architecture + Design creates homes, lodges

and resort projects that are as individual and diverse as

its clientele. Often, the firm is challenged to design

unique details and accessories to complement existing

architecture, bringing the spaces to life and defining

the character of the home. Led by principal Donald G.

Briggs, AIA, Briggs Architecture + Design believes that

a successful project begins with the art of listening.

This ensures that the home is a true reflection of the

owner, not the architect. Briggs often tells his clients

that he intends to design their home the way they

would if they were architects themselves. The firm is

committed to harmonizing a building with its natural

environment. This ethic is motivated by a deep respect

for nature and a desire to create homes with sustainable

style. These homes are designed to make efficient

and elegant use of indigenous resources and built with

healthy materials to create an environment that

nurtures the body, as well as the spirit. These timeless

designs continue to bring comfort, security and serenity

to their inhabitants as the years unfold.
