Above Left: The Territorial style and adobe exterior of the house were designed to enhance the architectural styles of the local community. While the exterior remains more traditional, the interior spaces are heavily influenced by contemporary style.
Above Right: The gate into the courtyard was fabricated by using reclaimed barn wood and iron work crafted by local artisans. The gate defines the entry into courtyard patio and restricts the access of native fauna. A traditional hacienda-style courtyard with stepping stones and black river rock tease the contemporary themes at work throughout the rest of the house.
Left: Fence post cacti, golden barrels, and a small water feature surrounded by black river rock compliment the Southwestern style of the house.
Below: The courtyard features an outdoor fireplace and seating area allowing the occupants an additional space to enjoy the desert.
Above Left: A covered patio offers additional entertaining space and shelter from the elements. An outdoor kitchen and television complete the space.
Above Right: The stepping stone pavers and black river rock continue through from the courtyard. The spa is elevated above the pool allowing for a 'waterfall' detail.
Right: The mixture of Territorial, Spanish, and contemporary styles continue into the back of the house. The back patio features all the elements of a great back yard: a place to be in the sun, a place to be in the shade, and a place to be in the water.
Below: At dusk, the rear patio transforms into a spectacular outdoor space anchored around a fire feature and reclaimed wood benches and stools.
