Description

The rugged desert setting inspired this Desert Modern home. Approaching the circular Auto Court, the low-lying horizontal architecture, with its undulating facades, reflects the depth of view of the mountains in the background. The Entry’s cantilevered roof helps frame the floor-to-ceiling window walls to the Great Room, and straight through to the Covered Rear Patio. Light-colored stucco, complemented with natural rectangular stone accent walls, provides a calming first impression.

The Entry Door, architect-designed and inspired by the owner’s company logo. A silver travertine wall extends from outside to inside, visually guiding guests into the Great Room an expansive living and entertaining space. Casual is the ambiance set by the pewter limestone wall containing a horizontal fireplace. Warmth provided by smoke white oak flooring. Kitchen, anchored by a large island that serves as a watch, talk, and eat space, with expansive views of the desert to the front and rear. This is an example of “view architecture,” experiencing views of the outdoors from every angle in the Great Room.

The covered Rear Patio extends across the home, its cantilevered roof provides unobstructed views by a single pair of inverted “L” shaped steel supports, as well as hidden steel substructure. A few steps down, the negative-edge Pool, and an outdoor Kitchen framed with natural boulders from the site. One unique entertainment feature: a TV that pops-up from the ground and swivels 360 degrees.

From a sustainability perspective -xeriscape approach to blend new landscape elements with boulders from the site to seamlessly match natural desert surroundings, solar orientation to minimize heat loading and solar panels on the roof.
