Designed by Michael J. Pickard, AIA, and completed in January ‘09, this light-filled showpiece sits on a near-acre irrigated Arcadia lot, offering stunning views of nearby Camelback Mountain. The strong horizontal exterior lines echos a Mid-Century Modern design ethos, but is fresh and innovative; a home that may draw inspiration from the past, but looks clearly forward.
A single-pitch metal roof over the main living/entertainment areas, is flanked by “floating-roofs” over the two zoned bedroom wings. The curved architectural-masonry wall leads from the driveway, through the striking 30-foot-long gallery entry, then exits to the back yard through a telescoping wall of glass: Interior and exterior living spaces become one.
