Location: Scottsdale, Arizona

This 6,000 square foot single level home has a wonderful front courtyard that is serviced by a butler’s pantry with a dutch door. The plan is formalized through the use of a sixty foot pool which reflects the image of a ramada. The rear of the home captures views of Camelback Mountain toward the north west. Interior spaces are oriented to capture and frame this view through the use of high windows and corner windows. Layering of walls, trees, and changes in level provide a feeling of separation from the busy boulevard at the front of the property. This home has a refined classic elegance that is punctuated by painted wood doors, windows, and woodwork.
