Taliesin Influenced Modern Design in Paradise Valley
February 15th, 2023
Frank Lloyd Wright influenced Organic Modern Design showcased in this Paradise Valley Estate. Offering complete privacy in this serene and gated 2.5 acre compound in Paradise Valley, Taliesin-trained Architects Gustad Irani and Yumi Doi of Organic Design Workshop incorporates Wright’s concepts of organic architecture.
Shading, breezeways and ceiling height direct light, air and for the most personal interaction. Unique geometry & timeless material palette bring metal, block and the southwest to life in this serene design.
An ample home w/6 private bedroom suites, multiple kitchens, & garage for 6. Pools/fountains allow water to ebb into daily life. Mature landscaping pulls you out to explore blurring the lines for an in-and-out life. Tennis/Pickle-Ball/Sport Court/Putting green add to the fun. Best of all is the feeling of living in ‘inhabited art’ in this elegant estate! WOW!!!
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.
Originally named for the first owners, The Rosenthal Home was also chosen to be part of the ” Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Exhibit ” which travelled to Moscow and additional European countries.
This home is clearly irreplaceable at this offering price. Some items are excluded and non-functioning, Call listing agents for details. Shown by Appointment Please.

The Myers Residence – Desert Highlands
April 7th, 2022
With design by Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice and Taliesin Architects co-founder, John Rattenbury – he and his team of associated architects and apprentices designed the Charles and Alta Myers Residence located in the Desert Highlands community of North Scottsdale. It remains one of the most significant homes by this firm and is deeply connected to Wright and his principles of organic architecture.
Impressive to this day, and one of his finest works, the Myers Residence appears to grow out of the hillside. Located at the foot of Pinnacle Peak, this Wright protégé used his acumen to design a home of continuous curves that nestle into this boulder strewn environ. At approximately 10,000 square feet, the design belies its size in using multiple roof forms to break up the mass, and to provide a sense of individual shelters along the landscape. Decorative details echo the shapes, forms, and colors of the desert. The home – at once of, and in, this generous multi-lot desert site remains timeless and one-of-a-kind.
Constructed with precision and incorporating the highest available building skills, this home is nearly irreplaceable today. Combining four lots, it commands the site, certainly now one of the best available in Desert Highlands!
The home offers generous spaces that includes a glorious owners suite, guest rooms, in-house guest suite (perfect for live-in’s), work out room with sauna, offices, entertaining spaces, formal dining, family and living rooms plus more: the separate, freestanding guest house adds the the resort like setting. The pool is stunning with select boulders placed for drama and design; a full outdoor kitchen area, shower and pool bath complete the swim-side cabana shelter. There is a private elevator for convenience.
On-site, the house offers extensive parking for five and then some. With widely abundant storage and shop space. The custom, gated lot is very private where the gentle hillside conditions allow for sweeping views of the Valley and uninterrupted sunsets.
In addition to the stunning architecture and commanding site, the decorative elements, stained glass, doors and other interior details were all custom designed by Taliesin Architects and associated artists. A custom patented copper-colored frieze, unique to this home, graces the roof edge offering a special element. The roof lines and massing echo the natural environment. This highly regarded and well-published home has never before been offered for sale. Recently refreshed with complete respect to the original design, you’ll find contemporary materials that include wood floors, custom stone, fresh paint, carpet, updated faucets, appliances, and more.
Architect John Rattenbury passed away on March 28, 2021 at the age of 93. The Myers house endures a graceful statement of lasting monument to his talent.

HOT NEW LISTING AND A RARE FIND! Designed by Blaine Drake in 1964, this remarkable Camelback Mountain area home offers true Mid-Century Desert Modern Design. With a wonderfully generous floorplan and incredible Mountain and City light views, this classic home nestles in the Camelback Mountain foothills on a gently elevated acre lot. The Hawkins House was designed and built in 1963-1964 and figured prominently in Drake’s 1992 Exhibition “40 Years of Architecture In Arizona” which was presented at ASU. A completely custom luxury home, it includes amenities often unseen in this architectural era. Recent updating of mechanicals, plumbing, appliances, flooring, paint and electrical insure this home is ready to enjoy today. For anyone interested in Mid-Century Modern Design, this home presents a unique example!
The house is masonry construction showcasing a high level of craftsmanship with details that include a custom steel facia, mahogany millwork and custom built-ins. A curved “loggia” follows the path to the entry providing detail, shadow and a covered respite from the elements. Nearly original save for thoughtful and updates and improvements, the plan has remained unchanged. Floor to ceiling glass and doors connect the home solidly to the outdoors, yet all are sheltered with generous overhangs that make this home desert-appropriate modernism.
The Master suite is particularly generous, with a large walk-in closet and en-suite bath. The Office/Den features walnut built-ins. The living room is open to dining, anchored by a masonry fireplace. Three additional bedrooms are offered, one with en-suite bath.
This corner acre property includes natural gas service and sports a circular drive for easy access from both Saddle Rock Lane and Rockridge Drive. There is ample storage, two-car carport and bonus shop/studio/storage room.
In a time where many of Drake’s designs became more rectangularly geometric, this home is wonderfully unique in that the home consists two intersecting arcs. Each arc plays a functional part in the design; one housing living spaces with a generous master suite and office, the other connects with additional bedrooms, service area and carport. Each arc allows the home to embrace a particular view selected by the architect to be celebrated by the occupants.
About The Architect:
Blaine Drake was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s original apprentices at Taliesin, Wisconsin, in 1933, and went on to establish his Arizona practice in 1945. He designed approximately two hundred projects during his long career, nearly two-thirds of which were built. Most of his work was in the Phoenix area and focused on residential architecture, though he also designed office, medical, and apartment buildings and churches. One of the few Wright apprentices to pursue a successful independent practice, Drake was an advocate of energy-efficient design in the desert. He received national and international recognition for his work. Blaine Drake retired from architectural practice in 1985.
