Mezzo Modern — William P. Bruder FAIA Architect
December 7th, 2019
NEW TO MARKET!
A quintessential design by Will Bruder Architects, “Mezzo” offers amazing modern architecture and select materials that make this urban design a world-class experience. The ten-unit complex is split into two parts, with a secured auto courtyard bridging both sites. “Mezzo” is defined by attention to detail throughout and thoughtful touches, typical of a Bruder project, including exposed concrete block construction, simple minimized walls and striking proportioned windows, in the form of ‘pop-out’ bay windows, which emphasize an indoor-outdoor relationship to the elements.
The three-floor urban home is mindfully scaled and modest; a fusion of quality, comfort and aesthetics that reflect the architect’s artful style, but do not conflict with the neighborhood’s Mid-century character. Immaculate condition and attention to detail throughout: This townhome-style condo has one of the best locations in the complex, tucked in the southwest corner of the complex on the Whitton Ave. side, offering a quiet location with great views from the home!
Ground floor offers gated carport parking to two cars, and chic and versatile flex space perfect for home office, shop or study, replete with its own mini-split AC for maximum efficiency. The second floor keeps all the living essentials in one place while maximizing a perfect balance of light and views. The kitchen, dining, living and half-bath rooms are filled with great light and a walk out terrace for outdoor living. Upstairs you’ll find two generous bedrooms and baths, the master with dual sinks and large closet with full walk-in shower.
This very special community represents the marriage of urban design and environment in artful combination of dramatic angles, textures, materials colors and eco-friendly touches all in a secure gated environment with an easy connection to the heart of the city. There’s really nothing else like Mezzo that offers the level of sophisticated urban living you’ll find here. The superb condition makes this one an easy decision!

Taking full advantage of its location near the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, this architect-designed home is one of a kind. Designed by Susanne Rothwell and built by John Schultz of Schultz Development, this home incorporates steel and block construction. Soaring ceilings and full height glass windows gather views from every setting.
Built to last, this design speaks of quality construction and timeless architecture. Split-face block anchors the design of this home to allow a soaring metal roof to sweep over the center of the home in an arc of glass and wood, all assembled with structural steel which was custom-formed due to its size and unique specifications. Hardwood and stone floors make for lasting luxury, while open steel stairs and soaring spaces keep it contemporary and spacious. The finishes are simple and classic: travertine, granite and maple.
This split-floor plan home includes generous bedrooms, den/office and en-suite access connecting baths. The generous master suite offers soft natural light and dual walk-in closets. Get ready to relax in the full sized wood sauna, shower or free-standing tub. A private outdoor shower connects you to the elements.
The glorious Euro-style kitchen is open to the large family room for the perfect balance of interconnection with guests, friends and family. Featuring double ovens and dishwashers, this kitchen is a cook’s dream. The sit-up island makes it a perfect place to cook, chat and visit. The adjacent family room’s wood burning fire feature does double duty working as both a heating element as well as a built in pizza oven!
The upper loft is not to be missed. It has a birds-nest view that comes complete with full bar and walk out patio. Enjoy sunset vistas from the upper roof deck which is covered for a break from the sun. Downstairs, a double-deep patio is evaporatively cooled for outdoor living all summer long.

You’ll enjoy the solitude of a Paradise Valley Area location with the convenience of easy access to SR-51 and the Shea Corridor. A trip to the airport typically takes less than 20 minutes. The nearby Phoenix Mountain Preserve will have you hiking, biking and possibly even wanting to explore the famous “Trail 100”. You’ll find popular Paradise Valley Schools too! With over 5,600 sf of contemporary design, this home has it all…

One Lexington High-Rise Modern – Will Bruder Architect
October 24th, 2019
This dramatic urban residence was designed by Architect Will Bruder FAIA as a custom pied-à-terre. 604 One Lexington offers a unique custom designed living environment perched six stories above the urban mix with spectacular mountain views.
The interior architecture and finishes of this home have been totally reimagined by the current owners, architect Will Bruder and his wife Louise Roman, to complement a refined minimalist aesthetic; every room and detail have been carefully coordinated, integrated and considered.
Located on the northeast corner of this concrete/steel tower on the 6th floor (65’ above the street) the home enjoys 180-degree panoramic mountain and city views through walls of floor to ceiling glass. An inset balcony and 11’6” exposed concrete ceilings make this space feel infinite.
Design choices amplify the vertical scale and spaciousness of the home. Large format select OSB wood grace the floor for a “sandy beach” look and feel that is soft on the foot. Visual clutter was eliminated and replaced by calming details that include custom doors and cabinets of clear finished MDF, stainless steel and translucent glass. A pivot wall panel separates the master suite but retains a sense of spaciousness and connection.
The fully-featured kitchen is separated from the great room space by a black venetian plaster wall at serving height capped with non-directional, polished-edged stainless-steel plate as are the kitchen counters. GE Monogram appliances and a French-door refrigerator complement this modernist decor. Generous European-style cabinets offer ‘pull out’ chrome storage drawers, plus an 8’ high pantry cabinet, wine rack and open “cookbook” shelf. The 21’ feet of kitchen workspace provides abundant space for food, prep and cooking.
The layout includes entry, hidden coat closet, liv/din/kitchen ‘great room’, guest powder room with full tub/shower (currently set up for storage), and laundry room with full size stacked Bosch washer/dryer unit. An open home office/studio (convertible to a second bedroom) includes a custom maple desk, full wall of book shelving, built-in storage cabinets and a paneled ‘tack-up wall’. Floor to ceiling windows face north for views and light.
Custom lighting adds dramatic flair in all the major living spaces (entry, kitchen, great room, Master BR, office/studio and balcony deck). Floor to ceiling windows are equipped with manually operated shades, and operable vent windows offer fresh air.
A wealth of on-site amenities includes a generous community patio courtyard, lush landscape, 40’x 40’ swimming pool, spa, community BBQs and outdoor kitchen. Two gated dog park runs are on-site for convenience. The 24/7 community room is equipped with a full kitchen and offers a place for meetings, private gatherings, and big screen viewing. You’ll also find a gym and workout space.
Location: “One Lex” is in the epicenter of Midtown directly at the Osborn/Central Ave light rail stop. Enjoy an easy connection to Sky-Harbor, Park Central Mall, Steele Indian School Park, museums, live performances, sports venues, ASU downtown campus, the convention center, near world-class care and more.
