Joseph Magaddino Architecture


Every project is unique, because each is a special blend of the client’s goals and the influence of the building site.

Rustic Elegance
Rustic elegance is often desired but seldom achieved as is in this graceful home, nestled within the rocky site. Warm and natural materials such as new and recycled woods, stone and hand forged steel detailed with natural mica gives one the feeling of living in the native beauty of Montana.

Old world doesn’t have to refer to European. We have our own history, and this home creates the illusion of a 100 year old grand homestead with meticulous attention to detail that flaunts panache, inside and out. The home appears to have been lovingly brought, by many generations, into the modern day.

Arching Stone
Windows around the great room turret take advantage of Mission Mountain and Flathead Lake views. Orientation of this home was vital to preserve the privacy of the interior and exterior living spaces from the wrap-around street on three sides.

Italian Villa
When a client wants an Italian villa in Montana, they get what they ask for. The formal sitting room is divided by colonnades from dining area and gourmet kitchen. The grand stairway up to the main floor completes the illusion.

Living Stone
The site and the structure are not mutually exclusive. The long rock outcropping in the middle of this site was brought into the house as a design element.

Log Lodge
Log homes are no longer just dark and cozy. These days, cozy is still possible, but so are open and grand. Nothing makes a home more tied to the land than the use of indigenous materials such as log and stone.

Tuscan Villa
Transposing the casual warmth of the Tuscan style villa to an elk ranch in the Rockies was facilitated by Joseph Magaddino’s Italian beginnings and his just having returned from a trip to the region that gave this style it’s name.

To take full advantage of the panoramic views from the lookout at the top of this rock ridgeline, the home needed to be designed such that it grew out of the existing ridge.
