Rapacz Residence

Project Overview

Location: Billings, MT
Size: 3,900 sf
Cost: $300,000
Completion: 1998

Project Description

This prairie style, five bedroom, home perched atop the rimrocks in Billings, was designed and built by the President of Schutz Foss Architects as his personal home. The design and placement of the house takes full advantage of this site’s unique features. The house is nestled into the steeply sloped site to maximize the magnificent views of the city and mountains from each room. This placement in the slope allows the house to present a much lower profile to the north storm winds and maximize the passive solar heating. The deep roof overhangs provide ample coverage in the summer eliminating any unwanted heat gain. Special care was given to organize space on a 4’ grid with mostly unoccupied spaces placed on the north side of the residence.
