Award Winning Hillside Architecture

Award Winning Hillside architecture by world renown Arizona Architect, Will Bruder FAIA.  This very special home is nestled into a spectacular hillside Mummy Mountain lot overlooking the Paradise Valley Country Club and beyond. The home is anchored to the site using native rock and playfully reaches into the landscape using steel cantilevers.  The home blends into the land using a palette of materials that include copper, glass, steel, concrete, and native stone. Widely considered one of Bruder’s best residential designs; the home offers both privacy and sweeping views. A versatile floorplan and “right-sized” spaces make this a forever home. Nearly irreplaceable at today’s costs, this represents an amazing value and opportunity to own an expressively detailed design by the master, “Arizona School” Architect.  Every day is a celebration of light, form, material, and a deep connection to nature.

Built using native- site sourced rock, glass, copper, and weathered steel integrating the home into the surrounding desert scape, cantilevered from the rocky hillside.

Inside, the kitchen opens onto the living and dining areas, the laundry and walk-in pantry both have views looking right at the mountain. The kitchen, walk-in pantry, and laundry room all stare into the desert canyon. The decks and gathering spaces offer sweeping views of the Valley as well as Paradise Valley Country Club.

For outdoor entertaining Bruder devised a man-made “cliff-bluff”, a raised patio area that contains the pool and fire-pit looking out to the Phoenix skyline, Camelback’s Praying Monk and the Phoenix Mountains to the North.

Two significant outcroppings of the mountain were left intact, allowing the mountain to extend into the entry way and the primary bathroom’s shower structure as a celebration of nature. The home was a hands-on event with Wendell Burnette (FAIA) serving as project coordinator and construction manager.

At the rear of the home which faces into the mountain’s careful excavation, created a narrow yard area running the full length of the home, a rare find in hillside building.

Architectural Details: The floor plan uses a 4-foot square unit and is rotated 45 degrees to the north-south axis, which was carefully lined up with Mummy Mountain.

The plan allows for gracious living and personal privacy: The great room and master suite face south with shaded patios overlooking the central garden and the reflection pool. The great room, kitchen dining, master suite, indoor pool, spa and therapy pool form one wing of the house while the smaller wing is made up of guestrooms.

The dramatic standing seam metal roof with its triangular ends, cantilever over the garden walls, enclosing a private garden space. Geometry organizes the space for harmony and interest: the triangle theme is further carried into the interior of the house in the form of triangle zinc inlays in the terrazzo floor forming a connection between the outdoor and the indoor. Attention to detail by these talented architects is superb.

Organic Design Workshop also designed the entrance gate and fence, the entrance door, fireplace and fascia unique to this home, using the triangle as the central geometric theme making the various parts of the house integrate to belong to the whole. Top quality glazing and lasting, concrete block construction were selected for security and strength.
Just as Taliesin West appears to grow out of the desert. The architects worked to to achieve the same effect with this cutting estate home.

The Following description was provided by the Architect:

Two volumes of light – one warm and one cool – one projected to the expansive horizon and one toward the canopy of the desert sky. Inspired by John Van Dyke’s ruminations on the phenomena of desert light, specifically “colored air” and “reflected light” in his 1901 book titled The Desert – Further Studies in Natural Appearances, … the Dialogue House is a gestalt instrument for touching the full range and specificity of this light, this “place”- day and night, season to season and year to year.

At the base of Echo Mountain (amidst an eclectic jumble of 1950’s-60’s ranch bungalows), the main living volume is elevated above work, guest, and the car, furthest from the street on a lateral pinwheel brace of charcoal masonry walls that extend cardinally capturing the site. This well-shaded volume is projected south toward the South Mountain and Sierra Estrella mountain ranges far across the Phoenix basin and downtown skyline.

The exterior surfaces of the pinwheel walls as well as the main volume absorb and reflect light akin to the “desert varnish” that coats the volcanic geology of the Phoenix Mountains turning silver, red, purple-brown-black during the day only to collapse into silhouettes at night. Thus, “life after work” is simultaneously supported by the apparent thickness and thinness of light.
The interior of the street volume is plastered cool white, half terrace – half cool water as a retreat from the city within the city where one can only see sky. Wind and water activated light is refracted onto the interior surfaces by day and most dramatically at night, which provides an animated foreground to the skyline and distant horizon beyond.
