Nestled into canyon walls, this non-intrusive Desert Modern home hugs nature. Natural stone tile and custom metal surfaces provide a palate of texture and color to blend with the canyon. Extensive use of overhangs, segmented and cantilevered to enhance appearance, protect against harsh desert conditions. These structures, as well as interior ceilings, rise from front to back, expanding the vistas. Cantilevers, supported by thin “chopstick” columns and dual-purpose fireplace flues, allow unobstructed views. Great Room glass walls bring in natural light, while clearstory windows combine with suspended ceiling elements to make the paneled ceiling appear to be floating.
