House In Scottsdale / Allen Philp Architects

A simple home [Allen Philp Architects] of the desert, that respects the desert, enhances the site.

This house, consisting of two parts is gently perched side saddle to the mountain ridge, joining the main slope with a rocky knoll. The two pieces express their two primary uses; the living area a lantern-like pavilion set above the desert floor to minimise the intrusion into the natural desert; the private spaces, solid against the mountain slope sheltered from the desert sun and heat — via ArchDaily
