Seven Exclusive Desert Pavilions On Forty Acres, located At The Saguaro National Park West. This project is to promote an indoor-outdoor lifestyle merging sensory experience, artisanship, and environment sensibility; to create the most unique private residence enclave in the American Southwest.

The use of raw, untreated steel works exceedingly well here in the Desert, reminding one of rusty cans or abandoned auto carcasses. The house is ingeniously angled to exploit precisely framed views in all directions and the overall effect is serene and sophisticated.

+ architect’s statement

… The simplest things can evoke the deepest feelings. The silence in great music is often more profound than sounds…
