MacKenzie River – Missoula, MT

CTA designed a distinctive atmosphere with a look that speaks to its Montana roots but provides a clean line approach that will fit into markets across the US. The exterior design of the project consists of a layering of materials to add interest according to corporate design guidelines. It includes a bend of EFIS, stone, board and batten, metal roofing, timber accents, and a custom sign package.

The interior design focused on developing a comfortable, modern, rustic atmosphere that provides a variety of seating options. The space is warm and inviting, adorned with wood, stone, and cut birch trees with automated light level control to match the desired ambiance for the different dining needs.

In addition, CTA assisted Glacier Restaurant Group in the development of their corporate design standards and branding. Together, we created a concise building design and construction document package that allows each location a unique identity while maintaining consistency and brand recognition, and we continue to support MacKenzie River’s mission to have a lesser footprint on the planet and promote a sustainable operation.
