There's dramatic artwork in and all around a spectacular country residence set in a valley in Montana. A huge circular wall of weathered steel greets guests as they drive up, a piece by the American sculptor Richard Serra.
Carney Logan Burke have created a remarkable retreat for their art collector clients who desired not only sufficient wall space - that really is a quartet of Andy Warhol works at the top of the stairs - but a true connection to the seven acres of rural America that surround the residence.
RCR Compound is not just one building, but a series of connected structures. Wood and stone are in evidence throughout. The main open plan living area is on the first floor, to make the most of the views.
A huge overhanging roof provides patios front and rear. Sliding doors from the large rear dining terrace lead into the cosy library, a cosseting space for thinking and reading.
Across a glass bridge are the elevated sleeping quarters, with views into a grove of newly planted trees. Stairs lead down to a lap pool for early morning swims. We'd say RCR Compound is a work of art in itself.
