This place-based custom home was designed to fit into the landscape of northern Arizona and the Prescott National Forest. Based on the architectural legacy of Mary Colter and National Park Service style, the concept for the home was that of an old lodge that had been renovated for a modern-day residence.
The home is rooted to its place through the predominant use of the natural materials found all around it- native stone and wood- for the columns, exterior wall finishes, and rustic wood beams that support its main roof. The Great Room itself features a full stone fireplace, a tongue and groove wood ceiling, and heavy wooden trusses overhead. A full height glass wall with 7' high telescoping glass doors opens to a generous wrap-around deck, blurring the lines between the interior and exterior and further connecting the home to its site.
