modern-exterior

This incredible modern home of concrete and glass was designed by architecture firm , nestled on Mummy Mountain. The property offers fabulous, sweeping views over Paradise Valley, Arizona. Encompassing 3,968 square feet (368.64 square meters) of living space, the structure is comprised of a series of parallel sandblasted concrete block walls configured in a way that allows the landscape and the views to flow freely through the spaces.

These walls orient the spaces to offer undisturbed views of Pinnacle Peak, the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, and the Superstition Mountains. Controlled openings within the walls are able to capture characteristics of the immediate site and landscape, specific views of the mountains beyond, and the desert sky.

The garages and entry court are located on the first level. The majority of the project’s program is located on the main level at one elevation due to the clients age. Two other bedrooms are located at different elevations, and by means of the section, allow for privacy and a more distinct focus on the specific qualities of views and the desert landscape.
