Impressive glass and steel dwelling immersed in the Sonoran Desert

residence-modern-exterior

This award-winning modern desert home is designed by Lake Flato Architects, located on the 15th Fairway of the Geronimo Golf Course in Desert Mountain, Arizona. The minimalistic forms of this dwelling were thoughtfully configured to both edit out views of nearby houses while highlighting the vast Sonoran Desert vistas. Encompassing 3,947 square feet of living space, there are three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms in this steel and glass desert pad.

On the exterior, a series of public and private courts with native plantings respects the fragile desert eco-system. Massive pivoting doors can be opened to take advantage of the seasonally temperate climate. Generous roof overhangs provides shelter to the glass-enclosed living spaces from the harsh desert sun. A palette of raw weathered steel and earth-colored stucco ground this house to the indigenous landscape.

Interesting Fact: This is the only home in the Arizona desert that the Texas-based Lake Flato Architects have created. So their mission was to integrate local materials into the design while partnering with the finest local craftsman. They have created a home that is tactile and modern, environmentally responsible and authentic, artful and beautifully executed.

What We Love: This Sonoran Desert home offers a fabulous indoor/outdoor connection to create a feeling of spaciousness while highlighting the surrounding views. Expansive outdoor living spaces and an incredible infinity pool connects to the landscape while providing areas for entertaining. We are especially loving the intimacy of the sunken patio with a large fire pit, providing warmth and ambiance for a desert winter night.
