“…One of my personal favorites with an extraordinary site that looks across the valley to Hawk Mountain. To watch raptors, eagles, and hawks flying across the ridge is a terrific experience…It is a great house with very appealing guest facilities.” -Peter Q. Bohlin, FAIA

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson
During its 53 years of practice, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has achieved an extraordinary record of design achievement. The firm is the recipient of 10 National Honor Awards from the American Institute of Architects and has received over 675 awards recognizing the firm’s design abilities.
This record of consistent achievement was recognized by the American Institute of Architects which awarded Bohlin Cywinski Jackson the 1994 Architecture Firm Award. This award is the highest honor the Institute bestows upon any single architectural practice and recognizes the extraordinary quality of design achieved by the firm since its founding.
Peter Bohlin, who personally oversaw design of the Blue Mountain Estate, is one of the founding principals of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which began practice as Bohlin and Powell in 1965. The firm’s success, and the professional recognition it has attained, are in large measure attributable to his design insights and unflagging dedication to setting the highest standards for all design work produced by the firm. His leadership and inspiration have established a culture of thoughtful, thorough design thinking throughout the practice, and he remains keenly interested in both broad conceptual thinking and detail expression, reviewing the development of design and documentation regularly with project teams. In 2010, the American Institute of Architects awarded Peter with the Gold Medal, the highest honor for an individual in the profession.
