The Ranch Mine in collaboration with Identity Construction is responsible for this newly constructed modern courtyard house located on a large property in central Phoenix, Arizona. The design of this home is inspired by the ancient art of pottery — one of the homeowners is a ceramic artist. 

Encompassing 6,500 square feet of living space, this dwelling was designed to be rigid in structure while malleable in use, precise in form while imperfect in texture, and varied in volume while limited in materials. Schematically the house is broken into its functional elements, a living volume, a sleeping volume and a utility volume.

They are arranged on the site to create a large courtyard, using the buildings to provide privacy and shelter from the desert sun. The outdoor areas were designed for both pleasure and production.

What We Love: This modern courtyard house boasts fantastic design elements both indoors and out. The layout of this dwelling was designed around a large central courtyard, providing this family with shelter from the hot desert sun to enjoy outdoor activities. We are loving that this home offers beautiful landscaping to inspire working from home, especially for an artist!

Behind the Corten steel siding is a gap and continuous rigid insulation and R-20 in the cavity of the wall. Steel absorbs solar radiation, like all materials, as well as transmit and reflect it in varying degrees. The steel has a very high emissivity which is good for radiating that heat back to the atmosphere which is beneficial in Arizona’s hot, sunny climate with large temperature swings.
