As recently featured in The New York Times, this award-winning design of modernist regionalism reflects the very best of this firm’s ethic. The celebrated Texas architecture firm of Lake/Flato are known for designs uniquely rooted in place. Situated in the northern Sonoran Desert, strong geometry blends with a palette of natural materials that complement the landscape; all carefully configured to focus on expansive desert vistas and a pastoral golf course site. Presented as a series of public and private courts with indigenous plantings, oversized steel and glass pivot doors fully opened to take advantage of the seasonally temperate climate.
A desert home, broad overhangs shade the glass-enclosed living spaces from the harsh desert sun. Natural weathered steel and earth-colored stucco and plasters anchor this home to the site. This indoor/outdoor relationship allows the home to remain efficient, yet expansive. Patios connect the spaces to the landscape; a steel wrapped infinity style pool and spa pull the view to the horizon, while intimate spaces such as lowered patio with large fire pit add warmth to chill of a desert winter night. This home is located on the 15th Fairway of the Geronimo Golf Course in Desert Mountain, a guard gated community that is unparalleled in amenity and beauty.
The only design by Lake/Flato in Arizona, the Architects created this home in sync with their mission to incorporate local materials and partnering with the best local craftsmen, creating a residence that is tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and beautifully executed. An Equity Golf Membership to the Desert Mountain Club is available but NOT included at offered price. A rare offering, this home is shown by appointment.
