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. 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.
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.
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.
