ABOUT CENTRE SKY
Centre Sky is committed to providing the highest quality solutions for mountain architecture and sustainable architectural design. We specialize in custom residential, ranch and resort architecture, and commercial architecture throughout the Rocky Mountain west including the private communities of Yellowstone Club and Spanish Peaks. Established in 1998, Centre Sky Architecture holds offices in Big Sky and Whitefish, Montana, and Denver, Colorado. We are dedicated to providing each client specifically tailored designs executed with emphasis on client requirements, site integration and sustainable design, combined with Centre Sky’s design flair.
WHO WE ARE:
Jamie Daugaard, Principal Architect, envisioned Centre Sky Architecture while earning his Master’s Degree in Architecture from Montana State University. The concept of “Centre Sky” revolves around theoretical underpinnings of Native American Architecture: devising an approach in which site and architecture become one.
Jamie continues to apply this theory to all projects – from planning and innovative design to sustainability and construction methods. Jamie holds certification with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP).
The right choices in design and materials along with high standards of construction result in a building that stands the test of time. Centre Sky Architecture has nearly two decades of experience and has been involved in a wide range of projects from high-end residential housing, resorts and ranches to museums, institutional, and commercial.
Our ability to conceptualize and implement innovative spaces and building designs indigenous to a region are especially notable. We are proud to represent numerous innovative projects in the private communities of Yellowstone Club and Spanish Peaks in Big Sky, MT, Whitefish, MT, Telluride and Grand Junction, CO, and Jackson, WY.
Centre Sky Architecture employs a creative, energetic, open-minded, and design-oriented team that is dedicated to your project from start to finish.
WHAT WE DO:
Centre Sky Architecture believes quality, communication, and ecological sensitivities are the key pillars involved in serving both the client and the environment.
Quality work is our first priority. We consider future generations when creating a design and further apply proven building practices coupled with new materials or methods to discover the best individualized response for each design.
Communication is essential to keep projects running smoothly, convey the design, and ensure our clients’ expectations are realized throughout the project. We use a variety of tools and the latest technology for communication from email and web conferences to hand-drawn sketches, digital and physical models.
Sustainability is a critical part of our design process and research agendas. Whether the goal is simply to gain a more energy-efficient kitchen or implement a heating system to reduce utility costs by 30%, or more complex like a LEED Platinum project or “off the grid” facility that requires zero fossil fuels to operate – Centre Sky Architecture provides the systems, construction techniques, orientation, costing, tax benefits and materials to define possibilities and options to our clients.
As the design progresses, so do the sustainable practices that are incorporated into the design. The end result is a new way of thinking – and a new way of living – whether it is in a primary residence, vacation home, secluded ranch, or resort development.
