Grizzly Creek Ranch is a rare and highly scenic 1,945± acre block of deeded land that lies virtually contiguous to Yellowstone National Park northwest of Gardiner, Montana and about a 45 minute drive south of Livingston. The property lies at the head of Tom Miner Basin, which is an absolutely spectacular private tributary valley to the Yellowstone River. The ranch offers a multitude of small-to-mid-size dwellings that include some original “homestead” cabins that offer guests the opportunity to escape. The main residence is a 3,816 sq.ft., two-story home of log construction built in 1991. The home is spatially comfortable with a substantial rock fireplace dominating the main living area off of the kitchen.
Adjacent to the main residence is a 950-sq.ft. outbuilding, which was fully converted into a yoga studio complete with a massage room. Also located within the main compound is a log sided 1,440 sq.ft. manager’s house constructed in 1996. The house includes four bedrooms and two baths, and is heated by a wood-burning stove and electric heat. Various adjacent buildings are also available for rent within the property of the ranch.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
