Capturing the Great Outdoors: A Japanese Bathhouse in the Mountains of Montana

In the spa of a private bathhouse, water overflows from the infinity edge of a custom limestone soaking tub into a drain filled with river rocks.

The exterior is clad in stucco.

In a corner of the gallery is a Tucker Robbins bench.

Teak planks surround the 75-foot lap pool.

A shower runs between the changing room and soaking tub.

Concrete borders the Zen garden of granite pebbles.

Teak-laminate cabinetry, limestone mosaic tile, and an onyx sink outfit the changing room, which can be closed off with shoji screens.

The building is surrounded by Tamarack larch, Douglas fir, and Aspen trees.

In the gym, custom pendant fixtures in brushed stainless steel hang from the peaked teak ceiling.

The green roof has a moss garden punctuated by limestone pavers.
