A wonderful oasis overlooking the arid desert — that is The Brown Residence at Scottsdale, Arizona, United States. Lake|Flato Architects, who designed the home, was very particular that it should be at once eminently functional and aesthetically appealing. This was superlatively challenging, of course, for them.
The house maximizes the panoramic desert views, allowing the residents the luxury to drink deep the ineffable beauties of their unique natural environment.
The designers have set their eyes more on helping the inhabitants focus their views on the distant desert and mountains than on neighboring houses.
Though The Brown Residence has an unassuming, modest scale to the street, it steps down with the slope of the site, expanding the spaces inside to become quite generous.
Oversized pivot doors and large expanses of glass let in floods of light and air into these spaces. Broad overhangs and shading devices shield them from the blistering heat of the desert sun.
A simple peep into the interiors of The Brown Residence, will convince all that it is nothing short of a holiday retreat, thanks largely to its harmonious design and welcoming atmosphere.
